Dorshapo Citrus limon (L.) Burm. f.Citroník
Pomona Sweet, Sweet
This variety belongs to a group of sweet lemons. Its name is a combination of letters from the names of botanists, who brought this variety from Brazil in 1914: Dorsett, Shamel and Popeno.
It is a very vigorous tree, yet it has small yields and its branches are covered with thorns. One could say it's very similar to 'Eureka'. Young shoots and blossoms are typically purple and the fruit is full of ridges with a well distinguishable nipple. Pulp of 'Dorshapo' fruit is amber yellow with sweet, background flavor and without the typical aroma of sweet lime. Acidity is usually extremely low and according to some authors, this variety could be also a sweet lime.
