Where Do Lemons Come From?

Get the low down on lemons from Limoneira in this episode of California Living from EncinoMom TV with your host Lisa Keating.

You might not have given this much thought, but did you know that a lemon tree can contain all four seasons on its branches at once? It can hold the fragrant blossoms of springtime and lemons ranging from pea sized and golf ball size all the way to full sized fruits. This enables year round lemon harvesting. Pretty cool, huh?

Join us for this virtual tour of the lemon packaging plant at Limoniera in Santa Paula, California. After you watch our video, you’ll probably want to arrange your own tour! Call ahead to schedule a mountain biking tour through the lemon scented groves, a jeep tour or even a trolley ride to explore the property. Limoniera also has hot-air balloon rides and gorgeous grounds for corporate retreats or special events, like the day you say I do!

Located north of highway 101 between the San Fernando Valley and Ventura in Santa Paula, California, Limoniera is one of North America’s top producers of lemons. Growing 5 varieties of lemons and 3 types of avocados with an eye toward sustainability, Limoneira has been providing lemons to the world since 1893.

Special thanks to John Chamberlain and Helen Gregorich for showing us around! For more info on Limoneira and a list of our picks in their neck of the woods, click here. Check out this recipe for Lavender Lemonade from chef Jason Collis, affectionately dubbed the Lavender Palmer at our house.
