Famed for many centuries as perhaps the best thirst‐quencher of all fruits, the lemon has a long history but one which nevertheless does not extend back to Ancient Greek and Roman times. The true origin of the lemon is uncertain, but it may well have been a natural hybrid of the citron and the lime, from which it differs in both shape and thinness of rind. It reached Europe by way of the North African countries and Spain between the ninth and eleventh centuries.
