Long story short,
Is lemon peel thickness sign of the fruit age?
Long story: half-cutting lemons (this worth for oranges and other citruses, as well), I noticed younger fruits have thicker peel (the white spongy flesh between the exterior skin and the internal juicy pulp) than older fruits.
Thus the question is: is there any correlation between this thickness of lemon peel and the age of the fruit?
NB: I am aware of the fact that exists different varieties of lemon, thus the peel thickness would be a natural physical aspect of the fruit; the question above relies on the fact I am talking about two identical lemons.
