Lemons have been cultivated in the Medditrainian region since the first century AD. Once so rare, kings presented lemons to one another as gifts. Before the days of lipstick, during the European Renaissance, fashionable ladies used lemon juice to redden their lips. The California Gold Rush of 1849 saw a high demand for lemons and people were willing to pay a lot of money for one lemon. It was at that time that lemon trees were planted in abundance throughout California. Today, California and Arizona produce 95% of the entire US lemon crop. Extremely high in vitamin c, lemons are an excellent preventive of scurvy, a disease that causes bleeding gums, loose teeth and aching joints. To this day, British Naval ships are required to have enough lemons on board for each soldier to have 1 ounce of lemon juice per day. Lemon trees bloom and produce fruit year round. One lemon trees can produce 500 to 600 pounds of lemons each year!
