C as in Citron
The citron tree, Citrus medica, is a small, thorny member of the Rutaceae family, particularly suited to the mild winters and temperate summers of Corsica's east coast, and takes its name from the cedar-like scent of its bark. The citron is used to make jams, fruit jellies or a liqueur known as "cédratine", and more rarely in perfumery. The Corsican citron is particularly sought-after for its fine aroma and lack of acidity. Harvesting takes place from October to November.
The citron is distinguished by :
- thick skin
- its soft, slightly juicy green pulp
- its bumpy, oval shape

A year in the life of Cédrat
Our harvest takes place in October and November. Before this essential stage, our trees have been pruned, and the vegetative rest has taken place quietly. We were able to blossom and slowly develop into the beautiful fruit we are.
