Lemon, common name for a small subtropical plant, and for its fruit. Lemon trees are cultivated throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, particularly in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and California. Lemons were first brought from the Middle East to Spain and northern Africa during the Middle Ages. The cultivated lemon is probably a hybrid of two wild species, most likely lime and citron obviously where the lemon got its name. 

Lemon trees grow to be about 3 to 6 m tall and are sparsely covered with foliage. Lemon flowers have a sweet odour comparable to the odour of orange flowers.

Lemons are popular for their juice and their citric acid, which may amount to 5 percent or more by weight of the lemon's juice. Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C and contains smaller amounts of the B vitamins, particularly B1, B2, and niacin.

Lemon juice is a characteristic ingredient in many pastries, desserts and Asian dishes. The astringent, distinctive flavor of the fruit is also used to enhance many poultry, fish, and vegetable dishes worldwide.
