Lemon belongs to the family of citrus fruits. It is rounded and slightly elongated. The pulp is pale yellow in color, juicy and with an acid flavour. Its skin is yellow and specially bright when it is ripe. It is thought to have originated from the Himalayan foothills of North-East India, and from where they spread all across the Middle east, Europe, Africa, and as far as America. It is available throughout the year. The major producers of lemon today are the United States, Italy, Spain, Greece, Israel and Turkey. Depending on the variety, it may contain no seeds or numerous seeds.
Go for a lemon that’s heavy for its size and has a pleasant fragrance. Its skin should be bright yellow with no wrinkling. Avoid those lemons that are too soft and have signs of white or green mold. The peak season for them is April through August.
Lemon may aggravate heartburn and ulcers. It can also cause nausea and vomiting.(3)
