    Default Mike...I can bring a bag of lemons to you.

    Hi Mike,

    My husband and I will arrive Christmas Day. I can get a bag of lemons at the store before we leave so they will be fresh.

    Where shall we find you. We are staying right on the beach in Cabarete.

    Huh? I hope these are very special lemons, because we have tons of lemons, limes, and sweet lemons in The DR. Much cheaper than in The US and Canada (not sure where you're going from).

    I thought so but on another post he asked for lemons to go with his vodka. Maybe i didn't understand and it was some kind of code. Leave it to me no to get the joke.

    Where do you find yellow lemons? Never saw them here. In fact, I can't even tell which ones are lemons and which one are limes here.

    I've never seen a yellow lemon for sale in DR.

    I've had some green lemons and let them sit around for a while to see if they would change color. They sure did........ Brown.

    Hmmm...not sure nowadays. I would have expected that you could find them in the supermarket (La Sirena for instance), on the side of the road, local colmado, tell some kid to get you some and you'll buy from them, etc...I haven't looked for lemons in The DR as I have my own tree in my house (Lime). I know when I was growing up these were very common, but maybe over the last few years they have disappeared.

    Nope. Ask for a limon and you'll get a lime every time.

    Personally, I like them better. Thinner skin, more juice, I even buy limes in NJ, and LimeAde is delicious.
