Lemon

The lemon is the fruit of the hybrid tree called lemon (Citrus sient. or lemon , Citrus × limon) and belongs to the family of Rytoeidon (Rutaceae) (= citrus (Hesperidaceae)). The fruit is used primarily for its juice, even though the fleshy part of the fruit and peel are also used, especially in cooking. Lemon juice contains about 5 % citric acid, which gives lemons a sour taste and pH from 2 to 3.
