Lemons are a popular fruit that people use in small quantities to add flavor to food. However, they rarely consume them alone due to their intense, sour taste.
Lemons give flavor to baked goods, sauces, salad dressings, marinades, drinks, and desserts, and they are also a good source of vitamin C.
Lemon trees generally produce their first crop of roughly 38 pounds of fruit around 3 years of age. The amount of fruit produced quickly increases with age, however, and 4- to 5-year-old trees are able to produce a crop of over 100 pounds yearly
