Lemons possess detoxifying and antibacterial properties , skin brightening benefits , work to repel insects, and are a great source of potassium, which helps with clear thinking, normalizing blood pressure and regulating water balance. Cleansing, astringent and aromatic, dipped in salt or baking powder, lemon juice can even polish copper pots  and fine silver. Wow, what can’t the lemon do?
So, where are lemons grown ? On US soil, mainly in California and Arizona, although the lemon tree  flourishes in temperate climes and is iconic to the mountainous landscape of Sorrento and the Amalfi coast, the birthplace of limoncello .
