Lemonade is a sweetened lemon-flavored beverage.
Arabs spread lemons throughout the Mediterranean area during the early 2nd century. When Christopher Columbus left Europe for the New World in 1492, he brought with him lemon seeds. These seeds were planted in Hispaniola in 1493.
Lemons are a hybrid between a sour orange and a citron. The average lemon contains eight seeds and three tablespoons of juice. Lemon trees produce fruit all year round. The lifespan of a lemon tree is approximately 50 years, but they can live to be 100 with proper care. A single lemon tree produces an average of 600 pounds of fruit per year. One lemon provides about 31 mg of Vitamin C, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's FoodData Central.
Lemon zest, grated rinds, is often used in baking. Lemon tree leaves can be used to make tea.
