Lemons have always been highly prized and traditionally were given to sailors to fight off scurvy on long sea voyages during the days of old English sailing ships. My Father can remember as a child here in England during the second world war, a single lemon, used in a raffle as a prize, raised enough money to buy a 'Spitfire' fighter plane.
