History of lemon
The lemon tree is probably native to Asia, specifically Kashmir region on the borders of China and India. Lemon arrived in the Middle East by Persia and acclimatized in Mesopotamia. The Hebrews then learn how to grow lemons, probably during the Babylonian captivity. The ancient Greeks did not seem to have integrated lemon in their diet, although it plays a role in the festivities accompanying the wedding.
Arabs favor the expansion of the “li Mum” (as they called it the lemon) across the Mediterranean from the tenth century, and particularly in Spain. There he becomes “limon” hence derive the English word (lemon) and the word “lemonade”.
It was at the end of the fifteenth century that the Spanish and Portuguese implanted the lemon in Florida, where lemon is still thriving!
