Fantastic smell and unique taste.
Meyer lemons are not as readily available as regular lemons but if you do see them, be sure to snap them up because their taste is very unique and different from a regular lemon. The Meyer lemon's taste is a cross between a tangerine and a lemon. Its smell is fantastic. (1)

Sweeter, more aromatic and flavorful.  
Meyers are sweeter, more aromatic and flavorful than ‘regular’ lemons. And their smooth, thin skin is entirely edible, so you can use the whole fruit. (4)

A sweet tartness that gives a kick to everything.
They're so sweet, and yet they have a nice tartness that gives a kick to everything. (9)

The Meyer lemon is a darling of farmer's markets and beloved by chefs and home cooks. Its aromatic, slightly sweet quality brightens desserts, sauces, salads and roasts.” (3)

Best lemon I’ve ever had
I have a Meyer lemon tree in a pot at my house that produces exactly one Meyer lemon a year.  I'm not sure why my tree only produces one lemon, but I can tell you that, honestly, it is the best lemon I've ever had (at least last year's crop). I plan on enjoying my glass of Meyer lemonade next week.  (4)

So popular there are Meyer Lemon shortages.
Meyer lemons have become so popular with restaurant chefs and home cooks alike that we suffer periodic shortages. (14)

A cut above.

You can use a Meyer lemon in any recipe that asks for regular lemons, but a  recipe made with a Meyer is just a step above. Make that two steps. (11)

A fan ever since adding Meyer lemons to ice cream
Ever since I first used Meyer lemons in my favorite ice cream recipe, I've been an ardent fan. (8)

Once you try them it’s hard not to get hooked.

I don't know many people who have tried [a Meyer lemon] without getting hooked. (10)
A sweet finish with an irresistible flavor
One of my most distinctive memories growing up in California was picking Meyer lemons from my grandmother's tree for whatever she was making that day for dinner.  Until I started my professional career in the culinary arts, I never understood why she always stressed that the Meyer was the best lemon to use.  The Meyer is what one would expect from a regular lemon but with a sweet finish and an irresistible flavor.  Now as a chef, I almost always prefer Meyer lemons.

Meyers are chic.
With less acid and more perfume than regular lemons, Meyers have become this season's chic citrus. (5)

The Boston Herald

A favorite of Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart is the fairy godmother of [the Meyer lemon] Cinderella story. . . [The] popularity of Meyer lemons has soared since food and lifestyle maven Stewart began featuring them in recipes, such as her lemon-pine nut tart [and] whole-wheat spaghetti with arugula and pistachios. (3)

Incredible demand for them.
We are very bullish on Meyer lemons. We've seen incredible demand for them grow in the last four or five years.  In restaurants now, you won't see a Eureka lemon tart.  But you will see a Meyer lemon tart. (7)

Sweeter, larger and juicier. 
Many chefs go cuckoo over [Meyer Lemons] because they are sweeter, larger and juicier than some other types.’ (6)

No other lemon beats them...
No other lemon beats them in cocktails, ice creams and sauces for fish or chicken. And I adore them in simple vinaigrettes. (12)

Coveted by citrus lovers.
The Meyer lemon is probably the most coveted by citrus lovers.

So beautiful all I could do was admire them. 
Last winter, I returned home from a trip to California with my suitcase stuffed full of Meyer lemons. . . .

I couldn't bear to do anything with the gorgeous [Meyer lemon] fruits except admire them for a couple days. The first afternoon I spent arranging them in still lifes. I took pictures of them. I piled them into my old aluminum colander. 

I set them on the coffee table in the living room so the sunlight fell on them, then I put them in a big milk glass bowl on the kitchen table. If I had any artistic ability, I would have painted them.
