Lemon facts and trivia
* The lemon originated in China
* Lemonade was a favorite of the Chinese Emperors
* Lemons made their way to the United States with the help of Catholic Missionaries and were planted in Arizona and California? Today they produce virtually all of the lemons consumed in the United States as well as about one-third of those used throughout the world
(source The Packer Produce Availability & Merchandising Guide, 1999).

Lemons are valued for their many uses in flavoring the food we eat, as a garnish, and for household purposes.

Lemons should be firm and have a bright yellow color. Avoid soft, shriveled lemons with spots. The best lemons will be fine textured and heavy for their size. Thin skinned fruit tends to have more juice, while fruit that has a greenish cast is likely to be more acidic. One medium lemon has about 3 tablespoons of juice and 3 tablespoons of grated peel.
