Lemon trees produce up to 272kgs of fruit all year round. The most common types of lemons are the Meyer, Eureka, Bearss and Lisbon lemons. The fruits are cultivated primarily for their juice, though the pulp and rind (zest) are also used in cooking, mixing and bi product manufacturing. The juice of a lemon is about 5% citric acid, which gives lemons a sour taste and a pH of 2 to 3. Sprinkling the juice on other fruits can prevent them turning brown. An average lemon holds three tablespoons of juice and contains eight seeds.
