Lemons will vary in texture and flavour, depending on the variety, but the fruits are known for their complex,
bright, and acidic flavours with floral, sweet-tart, and tangy undertones.
Lemons are an excellent source of fibre and vitamin C.
Lemons are also a good source of potassium, copper, vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium, and iron.
Lemons are available year-round.
Whole, unwashed Lemons will keep for a couple of days at room temperature and 1 to 2 weeks when stored in a plastic bag in the drawer of the refrigerator.
Freshly squeezed juice will also last up to 2 weeks in the fridge. When frozen, the juice will keep for 3 months.
