The lemon plant is native to India and maybe China and was brought to Europe by the Crusaders in the Middle Ages.
Since the fruit has a good amount of vitamins A, B and C, an ounce a day was given to sailors to prevent scurvy, eye problems and other vitamin deficiencies.
The first real lemon cultivation in Europe began in Genoa in the mid-fifteenth century.
It was later introduced to America by Christopher Columbus. Spanish conquests helped spread the lemon seeds farther.
Lemon was mainly used as an ornament and as medicine. It was only much later that it began to be used in cooking.
