Used medicinally throughout Europe for a wide range of complaints, lemons were considered a potent cure-all and became standard cargo on British naval ships, especially for preventing scurvy. In the seventeenth century, they were an ingredient in Carmelite water, an elixir produced by Carmelite nuns that was believed to promote health and longevity. Native to Asia and eastern India, this small tree has light green, toothed leaves and solitary white flowers tinged with pink. Lemon’s species name comes from the Arabic limun.
