Description: Lemons are harvested from small evergreen trees that are native to India and are now cultivated throughout the Mediterranean and most sub-tropical climates around the world. The trees can grow to 3-7 metres in height. The leaves are alternate, ovate-elliptical in shape, reddish when young, become dark-green in colour on the upper surface and light-green on the underside and 6-12cm in length. The 5-petaled flowers have a light fragrance; the flowers can grow in clusters or solitary and form in the leaf axils, they are white in colour with yellow stamens and a purplish underside. The fruits are oval with a apex protuberance 7-12cm in length the outer surface is bright yellow, tightly dimpled and waxy.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that a single lemon tree can produce between 200-270kg of fruit per year? The fruits of the lemon have been used as food and medicine since around 700 A.D. The fruits contain a high level of vitamin C as much as 50mg per 100g, due to this the lemon was revered by sailors as a cure for scurvy – a disease caused by lack of vitamin C. British naval ships carried enough lemons on board to allow for each sailor to have 30ml of lemon juice per day.
SUGGESTED USEPowdered lemon can be used to flavour salad dressings, cakes, biscuits and scones when fresh lemon is unavailable. A decoction of the powder can be added to lotions, creams and shampoos. An infusion of the powder can be used to wash floors and surfaces as lemon is antibacterial.
