Lemon Orchards

Price: $6.00

Many years ago, I helped the family groundskeeper, Theo (Uncle) Thanasi, harvest the fruit off the lemon trees in our perefoli (orchards). As I opened the weathered wooded gate, the trees were bowed low, waiting patiently to be relieved of their heavy bounty. We worked hard picking the lemons and then hauled the greenish-yellow fruit off to be stored in the cool, wood-lined apokreatos (cellar). A week later, I opened the cellar door and was overwhelmed by an intoxicating, yet woody blend of aromatic tart lemons, kissed with the soft whisper of old seasoned cedar. You can’t imagine what a harmonious scent combination these two natural aromas had created from the fruits of our labor!
