Interesting Facts about Lemons
Lemons are a citrus fruit native to North eastern India that have been found to be a hybrid of citron and bitter orange. While lemon trees have been used throughout history, they were only cultivated on a large scale in the 15th century. Lemon seeds were brought to America by Christopher Columbus where lemon trees were primarily used for medicinal purposes. Lemons were introduced into Australia with the arrival of the First Feet in 1787 who planted a variety of citrus species including lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit and mandarins.
