Not just a giant lemon

Liguria is full of different fruits and vegetables, and its normally mild climate (last year’s winter we can just chalk up to a freak year) means that citrus particularly can grown even through the colder months.  Aside from oranges and lemons dangling from the trees over your head, you can also find the famous cedro, which is called citron fruit in English.

Milder then lemon but still with a strong citrus flavor, it looks like a giant mutated lemon but it’s actually a unique fruit.  You can find it served candied, especially in the part of the Riviera Ligure closer to France, preserved in vodka, or in the famous soda of the region, cedrata.
