Organic bergamot lemons are quite the kingly lemons. They were first used back in the 16th century during King Louis XIV of France's reign to add scent to perfumes (Eau de Cologne is still heavily scented with bergamot). Their floral and exotic aromas are now used in aromatherapy, to relax the body and mind. It's also what you taste in those soothing cups of Earl Grey. Bergamot now thrives in Calabria on the Ionian coast, an area that now produces 80% of all bergamot.

Producer

The Minisci family have been growing vegetables, stone fruit and citrus for generations. It’s a real family affair with brother and sister duo, Anita and Angelo, who now manage the day to day running of the farm. Located in Calabria, Southern Italy, they work with other families in the region to form a cooperative of organic growers, producing things such as olive oil, grapes and brassicas.

Ingredients & allergens

Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.

Storage & prep

Use the juice to flavour yoghurt or squeeze for salad dressings or vinaigrettes. Bergamots also love to be paired with fish. Try giving it a squeeze over grilled mackerel. They also happen to make an excellent marmalade.

Where the wild things are
We all love butterflies, birds and bees. Choosing organic is better for the environment. Organic farms encourage wildlife and biodiversity (by not using chemical sprays, and by having more hedgerows, fallow land and wildflowers).
