Lemon is immediately identifiable by its signature elliptical fruit shape and the bright yellow color of its peel. Native to Asia, but common in many warm climes around the globe, lemon is unmistakable for the sour, tart flavor of its pulp, though its oil is derived from its sunny rind. The zest of its peel and its juice are staples of cooking in almost every culture, and lemon is also widely used in cleaning products. Lemon's aroma is bold, clear and uplifting.
