The juice of the lemon is about 5% to 6% citric acid, which gives lemons a sour taste. Fun Fact: Know how they say to roll a lemon on a counter top to break the cells inside that hold the liquid in order to get more juice out of juicing them?

The fruit is yellow-orange skinned and generally, an oblate spheroid in shape; it ranges in diameter from 10–15 cm (3.9–5.9 in).
