Lemon differs from other citrus fruit due to its greater sensitivity to low temperatures, surpassed only by that of lime and cedar. This has led citrus cultivators to cultivate it in particularly mild environments, where there are no frosts, so in Italy it is found in coastal areas with a milder climate present in Sicily and Calabria. Today in Italy, the main varieties of lemons in cultivation are native: Femminello Zagara bianca, Femminello Siracusano, Monachello, Interdonato, etc.
The Femminello Siracusano and the Monachello (typical Etna lemon) with their three blooms, with its three blooms: the primofiore (from November to April), the bianchetto and the verdello (from May to September).
The nutritional importance of oranges was already known at the end of the 18th century, when important quantities of these fruits were embarked on ships for the prevention of scurvy, a disease caused by the lack of ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
