Variegated Pink Lemon

The variegated pink lemon is a Eureka sport. It produces variegated fruit when small and green, then they turn pale yellow. The juice is clear, not pink. The buds and new growth have a fuchia color, and the flesh of the fruit is pale pink. It is not as hardy as the regular Eureka. Also it does not produce abundant fruit. It is prized more for the interesting variegated foliage than for fruit quality and quantity.
