It would give you the pip
FISHING out lemon pips from your Christmas seafood platter could become a thing of the past after the development of a seedless lemon. Next year, you could look forward to a seed-free Yule. But for now, pent-up demand for the fruit was still far outstripping supply, said central Queensland citrus farmer Craig Pressler who has developed the Eureka Seedless lemon after 10 years of selective breeding.
Launched yesterday at the Brisbane Markets, the lemon was snapped up by the restaurant and catering trade: a key selling point for the fruit was its shorter handling time, which helps cut labour costs.
