The fragrant lemons are native to the Sorrento Peninsula and are one of the most famous types of lemons cultivated in Southern Italy. True Sorrento lemons are cultivated in a protected region on the island of Capri and the Sorrento Peninsula. Lemons produced in this small region are given an Indication of Geographic Protection, or IGP, which acknowledges that the lemons grown in this region have a distinct flavor, peel thickness, and aroma.
In addition to vitamins and minerals, Sorrento lemons contain limonene. This natural compound provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to protect the cells from the damage caused by free radicals.
