This 14 acre organic lemon farm is a terraced garden that climbs up the mountain. The farm is owned and operated by Aceto Via Delle Cartier, and has been in his family for 6 generations. Some of the highest yielding trees on the property are over 600 years old. The workers on the farm are called "flying lemon farmers", because there are no machines on the farm, so they must climb up into the trees and scale the terraces.
The Amalfi lemons are unique they take 9 months to mature, they are very big and a single lemon can weigh up to a kilo (2.2 pound). These lemons have no seeds and you eat the entire fruit -skin and all.
