Tesco to sell pipless lemons

Tesco is to sell a new variety of guaranteed seedless lemons.

Seedless lemons were trialled in the UK many years ago, but never took off due to a lack of a consistent good quality supply.

However, a new variety has now been successfully grown in South Africa and Spain and has the potential to enable the products to be stocked in-store all year long.

The lemons are supplied to the supermarket by Peterborough based AMT Fruit, which has worked with Tesco for more than 20 years.

Tesco citrus buyer Emily Ridge said: “At last now customers will no longer have to spend extra time picking out the pips after squeezing lemon on a wonderful meal or drink. Seedless lemons were first trialled about 15 years ago but unfortunately until now they could never be guaranteed to be completely pip free. This new variety has been growing and maturing for many years and now is finally ready to hit supermarket shelves.”

Tesco’s Jaffa Seedless Lemons will go on sale at 320 stores across the UK and will cost £1.50 per pack of around four.
