Meyer lemon is a citrus fruit hailing from China that’s a cross between lemon and mandarin. Meyer lemon trees are perfect indoor plants that fruit beautifully. These trees get around 6-10 feet tall but will adapt to pot size – urbanites: take note if you’re looking for a good houseplant. If you’re a lemon lover like me, this is one you’ll want in home.

Meyer lemons are a great source of Vitamin C and antioxidants that boost your immune system and help protect against heart disease, cancer and help increase alkalinity in the body. I grew up loving lemon bars, lemon tarts, I love anything with lemon! Thank goodness I grew up in Cali where we had an abundance of lemons everywhere!

I came across some Meyer lemons this weekend and was reminded of my hometown. I made this vegan meyer lemon tart in about 20 minutes of prep time.
