The lemon tree is good news for gardeners who want a steady supply of fruit all year round. Lemons, Limes and Lemonades can be used to make lemon bread, lemon meringue pie, fresh lemonade and juices. Citrus trees are becoming more and more popular as landscaping plants, offering not only fruit but an attractive form of year-round, glossy, deep green foliage, and fragrant flowers that would rival any.

The fragrant fruits of the citron are highly variable in shape and texture. They can be oblong, obovoid, oval, rough or smooth. The candied peel is used in the food industry and is a common ingredient in fruit cakes, plum pudding, sweet rolls and candys. If fully ripen on the tree the fruits are very aromatic and yellow, they can be placed in a bowl to scent a room. Sensative to frost, the foliage and fruit can also be damaged by intense heat and drought.
