'Eureka Seedless', a new seedless lemon
Our lemon tree has been incredibly productive this year, so we continually have a basket of lemons sitting in the kitchen and have been giving them away left and right as well, so I've had a fair amount of lemonade and lemon chicken these last few weeks. (I don't know what cultivar it is...a girl in a lab I taught gave it to me in a huge pot because she was moving). I don't see the seeds as a big issue, but people are kind of hyped up about this new seedless lemon, developed in Australia by folks whose plantings have just been completely wiped out by canker eradication (nice to see we don't have a monopoly on that here in Florida):

Of course, seedless lemons aren't that new, really. There was an 'Armstrong Seedless' discovered in 1909, and roughly half a century earlier there was the 'Lisbon'. And the 'Nepali Oblong' probably predates both of them. Not to mention a handful of mystery lemons of undetermined cultivar hanging around, like this one.
Still it's pretty cool.
