Lemon is a small evergreen tree (Citrus × limon, shortened as C. limon), commonly believed to have first grown in India, northern Burma and China. The fruit, also called lemon, is used for culinary and nonculinary purposes throughout the world, mainly in cooking and baking. Lemon juice has about 5% to 6% citric acid.

There are several varieties of lemons such as: Bush Lemon (naturalized lemon grown wild in subtropical Australia), Eureka Lemon (a year-round common supermarket lemon), Lisbon (bitter lemon, the fruits are similar to Eureka), Meyer (a cross between a lemon and possibly an orange or a mandarin, thin-skinned and slightly less acidic than the Lisbon and Eureka lemons), Ponderosa (thick skinned, very large fruit), variegated Pink, Verna (a Spanish variety), Villafranca, Yen Ben (Australasian cultivar), and Yuzu.
