GLOSSARY: Lemon Varieties

We couldn’t let Oranges & Lemons Day end without introducing our latest food glossary: the Lemon Glossary.

It has (almost) everything you want to know about lemons:

  • Lemon history (they originated near the foothills of the Himalayas)
  • The different types of lemons (can you name even two?)
  • Nutrition and health benefits, plus kitchen tips.You’ll even find our favorite recipe for homemade lemonade.

    The Lemon Glossary is one of more than 70 food glossaries developed by THE NIBBLE editors. You’ll find everything from an Antioxidant Foods Glossary and Artificial & Natural Sweeteners Glossary to a Waffle Glossary and Yogurt Glossary.


Can you name this type of lemon? It’s one of
the two “supermarket lemons.” There’s no
generic “lemon” any more than there is a generic “apple.”

HOT TIP: The most frequently read pages on are the Beef Glossary, Cheese Glossary, Chocolate Glossary, Crab Glossary, Olive Oil Glossary, Pasta Glossary, Squash Glossary, Sushi Glossary, Tea Glossary and Water Glossary.
