Potato Salad with Bacon

There are a lot of different types of lemons. Here are a few, the rest is for another post. 

Avalon lemon,originated in Florida and is similar to the Lisbon lemon and Eureka lemon, the two main types in supermarkets.

The Bearss lemon tree is a true lemon tree believe to be originated in Italy, from a variety that is now extinct. Bearss was a Florida citrus grower; the current Bearss lemon was found in one of their groves near Lutz, Florida, around 1952. It is a popular variety for growers.

Buddha’s Hand is an extremely fragrant, misshapen fruit indigenous to the lower Himalayas. In China, it is a traditional temple offering and symbol of happiness, longevity and good fortune. The culinary benefits are in the pith and rind; the fingers are all rind, without pulp or juice.

A wild lemon from Australia, the bush lemon or rough lemon is very hardy, with a thick bumpy
skin and a strong lemon flavor from the rind similar to a true lemon. The bush lemon can be low in juice, but often always features a much stronger tasting flesh than other lemons. Its hardiness makes it a good rootstock for grafting other varieties. The bush lemon is self seeding. This means that when the seeds fall to the ground in the right environment, they will germinate and grow the following spring.
