  • Bergamotto lemons are a bit smaller than an orange, with a slightly round shape. The yellow-green skin of the Bergamotto lemon is thin and very aromatic, which is a result of high amounts of a compound called limonene present in the peel. The skin slowly changes from lime green to a greenish-yellow color towards the end of the season. The flesh of the Bergamotto lemon resembles that of a grapefruit and has a fragrant aroma. The taste of the juice is bitter and acidic.

  • Bergamotto lemon is used in a wide variety of applications, from culinary to pharmaceutical. The fruit is squeezed for its sour-bitter juice, and the rind is zested or pressed for its intensely aromatic oils. Bergamotto lemon juice can be used to make sorbet, gelato, or a marinade for fish or poultry. The Italian citrus variety can be used in dressings, desserts, juices, or other applications where lemon or lime juice is used.

  • Keep Bergamotto lemon refrigerated for up to a month in the crisper drawer; fruit left at room temperature will not keep for more than a week.
