The History of Lemon
Lemon plants are native to Asia and believed to have come from Europe around 200 A.D. They were later brought to America by Christopher Columbus. During this time, English sailors would often use lemons while out at sea to protect themselves from scurvy and vitamin deficiencies. Their popularity has led to them now being grown in many countries all over the world.
