The lemon plant originated in India and possibly China and was brought to Europe by the Crusaders in the Middle Ages. Because the fruit is high in vitamins A, B and C, sailors were given an ounce a day to prevent scurvy, eye problems and other vitamin deficiencies.
The first real cultivation of lemons in Europe began in Genoa in the mid-fifteenth century. It was later introduced to America by Christopher Columbus. The Spanish conquests contributed to the further spread of lemon seeds. The lemon was used mainly as an ornamental plant and as a medicine. Only much later began to use them in the kitchen.
