Meyer lemons are hybrid citrus fruits originally from China. No one's sure exactly, but scientists think they are a cross between a lemon and a sweet orange. These thin-skinned lemons are dark yellow to orange in color, and have a lot of juice and less tart than regular lemons. They're a bit sweeter and lower on acid, too. The rind is smoother and has less pits than regular lemons, and they're rounder.
