In just a few years, 10% of all lemons on the U.S. market could be seedless, according to citrus company Wonderful Company. What are your thoughts on that?
How many times have you been annoyed by the lemon seeds as you’re trying to make a lemonade or slice up some lemons for dinner? Wonderful Company is working hard to make seedless lemons a common thing you can buy everywhere and it may happen a lot sooner than you think.
In fact, seedless lemons are already available at grocery chains across the U.S. The company claims they are “naturally seedless, Non-GMO Project verified variety of lemon” that is as “juicy and zesty—everything consumers love about lemons minus the inconvenient seeds,” and makes “preparing cocktails and cooking even easier.”
There have been previous attempts at seedless lemons, but it’s just now that someone has found the perfect commercial variety of them. For now, they will be available from November through May, according to the California growing season. The company hopes that by 2021, once their Mexico farms are up and running, the seedless lemons will be available all year round.
