Question Can I carve a bowl out of a lemon?

Now I've carved out apples before... and I love them. But I'm starting to get into some citrus flavors out there and want to know if it is a good idea to use a lemon as a bowl?

I'm thinking it might be too soft and juicy to really be effective. But, maybe the extra juice will really add to the flavor! idk

to be honest, just stick with a regular or phunnel bowl.

Fruit bowls are cool and all (ive made pineapple, cantelope, watermelon, peach, apple, orange) and its just not worth it. Fun to make but thats about it. Dont get me wrong, smokes good but doesnt really add much to the taste and the bowl doesnt last as long. You also use more tobacco and charcoal

Well... it really boils down to how you make it.. i made an apple that lasted way longer than i have had a normal bowl last 2 weeks ago... and i don't think we used excessive shisha or coals. But i would agree it doesn't really add flavor.
I have been thinking of a doing a citrus bowl myself.. either orange or lemon...while the texture is different i think you would be fine.. its just a matter of carving it out right while leaving enough left so the bowl is somewhat sturdy.

Yeah, I guess the rind of the lemon/orange is really what would keep it from falling off... which was my main concern. Maybe I'll try it tonight, but I'm not too good at carving fruits. I fail even with apples.

Practice makes perfect though right?
