Lemons (Citrus limon) are among the world’s most popular citrus fruits.
They grow on lemon trees and are a hybrid of the original citron and lime.
There are many ways to enjoy lemons, but they taste very sour and are usually not eaten alone or as a whole fruit.
Instead, they’re often a garnish with meals, and their juice is often used to provide a sour flavor. They are a key ingredient in lemonade.
A great source of vitamin C and fiber, lemons contain many plant compounds, minerals, and essential oils.
These yellow fruits also have many potential health benefits. Eating lemons may lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, and kidney stones.
