Le Citron de Menton est arrivé !

Convoité par nombre de chefs étoilés, ce Citron va servir de base à la préparation de notre huile d’olive au Citron de Menton. Petite présentation de cet agrume, véritable curiosité régionale à la renommé internationale !

Apparu dès le 14ème siècle, la culture de l’agrume à Menton va s’intensifier jusqu’au 18ème siècle et connaître une véritable apogée jusqu’au milieu du 19ème : la production annuelle d’agrume est alors estimée à 280 000 tonnes pour 80 000 citronniers. La culture actuelle, bien que plus restreinte, n’en reste pas moins le gage d’une qualité et d’un savoir-faire unique au monde.

 

Comment reconnaître un véritable Citron de Menton ?

La couleur du Citron de Menton varie légèrement selon la période de la récolte : jaune clair à verdâtre pendant la période « primeur », jaune intense et lumineux lorsque le fruit est a maturité optimale. Avec le froid nocturne de l’hiver, il se pare d’une belle robe jaune vif, presque fluorescente.
Son écorce est très parfumée et dégage des arômes prononcés qui tendent vert la citronnelle fraîche. Lorsque vous le goûtez, vous retrouvez un jus également très parfumé, sucré et sans amertume.

Un environnement typique et une récolte délicate

Le Citron de Menton doit son unicité en partie à l’influence du microclimat mentonnais : un ensoleillement régulier tout au long de l’année favorise des températures douces, même en hiver (une moyenne oscillant entre 10 et 16°C) et le relief montagneux, jusqu’à plus de 1000m d’altitude, protège du vent. Les écarts de températures entre le jour et la nuit favorisent quant à eux une légère rosée qui, associée à une hygrométrie proche des zones tropicales (près de 75%) irriguent les sols.
Le Citron de Menton est entièrement récolté à la main, directement à maturité et sans stockage préalable. Aucun agent chimique n’est ajouté et les fruits sont stockés sans sacs, de manière à éviter qu’ils ne s’échauffent.
Aujourd’hui, le Citron de Menton concoure à l’obtention d’une IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée) en raison de ses qualités gustatives et aromatiques et du climat unique dont bénéficie son lieu de production.
