The lemon itself has a long history: originating in India and perhaps China, it was brought to Europe by the Crusaders in the Middle Ages and later introduced to the Americas by Christopher Columbus.
Even then, it was known that the high content of vitamins A, B and C in the lemon was essential for seamen to prevent scurvy and other deficiency symptoms. However, the actual cultivation of lemons in Europe began only in the fifteenth century in Genoa. For a long time, the lemon was valued mainly as a medicine and ornamental plant, before it found its permanent place in the culinary world.
