Lemon is a fruit from the citrus family, cultivated for thousands of years in Asia (it is assumed that India and China are countries of origin), from where it came to Europe, more precisely to Ancient Greece. The Ancient Greeks discovered this healthy fruit most likely thanks to the Macedonian king Alexander the Great, who brought it from Persia.

Lemon was transported to the Roman Empire where it became so popular that soldiers included it as their obligatory food supply. In this way, this “sunny” fruit was spread across other Mediterranean countries, including Spain, from where sailors, led by Columbus, took it to distant America. Nowadays, California and other countries on the west coast of the United States are among the largest cultivators of citrus.
