Organic Sicilian Cedar Piretto
The Organic “bread” Cedar or Piretto Cedar (Citrus medica) is known as one of the best and tastiest cultivated cedars around. The albedo (the white inside) in fact constitutes up to 70% of the fruit and is juicy, therefore it is consumed together with the pulp. The “piretto” organic lemon citron has a tart flavor but sweeter than a lemon and is appreciated in salads and side dishes, or used in a myriad of preparations: from simple flavoring to the creation of candied fruit and distillation of liqueurs. Being organic, you can also eat the peel! Just think that over the years, especially in Southern Italy, this variety was grown in the open field, and people enjoyed the fruit in bites, exactly as one bites bread! It is probably from there that this variety was named.
