Located on the Mediterranean Sea along the Franco-Italian border, the small and quiet town of Menton is known as ‘la perle de la France’. With a climate that offers fertile soil and almost endless sunshine favorable to citrus fruits, Menton produces an extraordinary lemon. Unlike any other variety of lemon, the Menton lemon is sweeter and less acidic, so special that its skin is sweet enough to eat. Christine Ferber, the well-known queen of confiture, has hand selected this exceptional fruit for one of her summer specialties. The sweet property of this amazing lemon creates a truly unique and refreshing flavor that is ideal for warm weather.
