Variegated Eureka Pink Lemons

Variegated Pink-fleshed Eureka lemon is sometimes sold under the name Pink Lemonade and is a sport of the conventional Eureka lemon. It originated in a home garden in Burbank, California in 1931.

Characteristics: The leaves are variegated green and white, making the tree quite ornamental, and the tree grows a little less vigorously than a typical Eureka lemon tree. The rind is striped green and cream and is sometimes rougher than conventional Eureka. When fully ripe, the stripes fade, and the rind turns yellow with distinct pink oil glands. The flesh is light pink at full maturity, low-seeded, and very acidic.
