The origin of the lemon is unknown, though lemons are thought to
have first grown in Assam (a region in northeast India), northern
Burma or China.A study of the genetic origin of the lemon reported
it to be hybrid between bitter orange (sour orange) and citron.
Lemons entered Europe near southern Italy no later than the first
century AD, during the time of Ancient Rome.However, they were not
widely cultivated. They were later introduced to Persia and then to
Iraq and Egypt around 700 AD. The lemon was first recorded in
literature in a 10th-century Arabic treatise on farming, and was
also used as an ornamental plant in early Islamic gardens.It was
distributed widely throughout the Arab world and the Mediterranean
region between 1000 and 1150.
The first substantial cultivation of lemons in Europe began in
Genoa in the middle of the 15th century. The lemon was later
introduced to the Americas in 1493 when Christopher Columbus
brought lemon seeds to Hispaniola on his voyages. Spanish conquest
throughout the New World helped spread lemon seeds. It was mainly
used as an ornamental plant and for medicine.In the 19th century,
lemons were increasingly planted in Florida andCalifornia.
In 1747, James Lind's experiments on seamen suffering from scurvy
involved adding lemon juice to their diets, though vitamin C was
not yet known.
The origin of the word "lemon" may be Middle Eastern. The word

The 'Eureka' grows year-round and abundantly. This is the common
supermarket lemon,also known as 'Four Seasons' (Quatre Saisons)
because of its ability to produce fruit and flowers together
throughout the year. This variety is also available as a plant to
domestic customers.There is also a pink-fleshed Eureka lemon, with
a green and yellowvariegated outer skin.
The 'Femminello St. Teresa', or 'Sorrento' is native to Italy. This
fruit's zest is high in lemon oils. It is the variety traditionally
used in the making of limoncello.
The 'Meyer' is a cross between a lemon and possibly an orange or a
mandarin, and was named after Frank N. Meyer, who first introduced
it to the USA in 1908. Thin-skinned and slightly less acidic than
the Lisbon and Eureka lemons, Meyer lemons require more care when
shipping and are not widely grown on a commercial basis. Meyer
lemons often mature to a yellow-orange color. They are sl
