How To Tell If A Lemon Is Ripe 

1st, give it a smell. Go ahead, put it right up to your nose and smell for a strong lemony scent. The stronger the scent, the riper the fruit will be.

The deeper yellow in color they are, the juicier they are, as well.

The heavier it feels in your hands, the more juice is hiding inside!
