Some of the great health benefits of eating lemons include that they are alkaline forming, which helps your body balance its PH. Lemons are also high in vitamin C, with fresh lemon juice in water being a great liver detoxifier. Lemons also have antibacterial properties, and lemons have vitamin K, which helps to strengthen blood vessels. Lemons are native to Asia, around Northeast India, China, and North Burma. Lemons are thought to be a hybrid between a sour orange and a citron. The lemon is an evergreen tree, it blooms with a white flower and produces fruit all year round. Each lemon tree can produce between 500 and 600 pounds of lemons a year. Christopher Columbus took lemon seeds with him on his voyage to the America's in 1493, introducing the fruit there.

Lemons have a sour taste to them because lemon juice contains about 5 to 6 percent citric acid. Lemon juice is the main ingredient of lemonade recipes. The sour taste of lemon juice makes it perfect for squeezing on fish. Slices of lemon or lemon rind can also be used as a garnish for a wide variety of other foods and drinks recipes. Lemon zest which is the grated outer rind of the lemon is used for flavor in the baking of sponges, cakes, and biscuits, puddings like lemon meringue pie, rice dishes, and other dishes.
