You know how it is when your in LOVE! You get all jittery, your palms sweat, and your heartbeat quickens. You just get giddy when encountering your love in close quarters, and depression sets in when circumstances force you to be apart from your beloved. OK! OK! Let me see you take that first bite of a Meyer lemon from Lemon Ladies Orchard and not be totally impressed.
If you have not tasted a Meyer Lemon I advise you to! A 3000 year old delicious pairing of a mandarin orange and a lemon that delivers a sweet and floral taste all at once. There is no puckering with a Meyer Lemon (named after the man who discovered it in China in 1908) .
Karen Morss planted her orchard in 2004, cared and nurtured for three years, and was rewarded with the best known – most sought after Meyer lemons. Lemon Ladies Orchard is nestled in Emerald Hills, California. Each tree is named after a woman that Karen Morss admires. The ‘Ladies’ are treated like royal queens. From the organic fertilizer to the abundant sunshine and love, each ‘Lady” is pampered to produce the sweetest lemons.
The first thing we made was a lemon pie. Ahhh there is no comparison in the explosion of flavor that happened using Meyer Lemons in this family recipe. As for my husbands famous upside down pineapple cake… the lemons enhanced the flavor making it a mouth-watering experience. I can honestly say we will not make it again with that dull bottled lemon juice. Its Lemon Ladies Orchard and Meyer Lemons all the way. Karen’s lemons are picked on Sunday and shipped Priority Mail on Monday. Fresh from her orchard to your kitchen! How FRESH is that?
As remarkable as Lemon Ladies Orchard, Karen Morss, the woman behind it is equally remarkable. Her first and foremost venture is her orchard, but her gifts and talents reach far beyond. Before starting Lemon Ladies Orchard, Karen owned her own software company and operated a flight school. Now she is the author of a children’s Christmas book, “Flying Poodles: A Christmas Story
“. She then created the app version in iTunes which CNET selected as one of the five fabulous finds of the holidays.
As to more dreams and aspirations, she plans to write a screenplay for a 30 minute TV Christmas Special based on her Flying Poodles – A Christmas Story.
As to her goal for Lemon Ladies Orchard, Karen said, “the business continues to grow and thrive and my single goal is to provide the nicest possible lemons to people all over the country during the time of year when fresh fruit is most appreciated, winter!”
