Limoneira Celebrates National Lemon Days for August; Healthy Grocery Girl® Megan Roosevelt Shares

SANTA PAULA, CA - In my opinion, every produce item should have their own designated day, week, or month, and in the case of Limoniera, lemons are snagging a spot this summer. While every day is lemon day at Limoneira Ranch, this August will host some delicious, zesty dessert days to celebrate the popular citrus item.

Lemon Meringue Day – August 15

Both sweet and tart, there are many ways to interpret lemon meringue. It can be a pie, cookies, tarts, cheesecakes and more, but one of Limoneira’s favorite ways to enjoy lemon meringue is in the form of homemade ice cream!

Lemonade Day – August 20

Lemonade day is a great way to get creative with the kids! This cool, refreshing summer treat is easy to make and remake with different combinations of fruits. Create your own recipe or find some inspiration online!

Other special lemon dessert days on the horizon include:

Lemon Crème Pie Day – November 29

Rich, smooth and bursting with lemony goodness, lemon crème pies are easy to make and can be made with just a few, simple ingredients.

Lemon Cupcake Day – December 15

On lemon cupcake day, create and enjoy as many varieties of delightful, beautiful and bright lemon cupcakes as you care for! A few of Limoneira’s favorite cupcakes include limoncello cupcakes, honey lemon cupcakes, lemon poppyseed cupcakes, lemon drop cupcakes, and the classic lemon cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting.
