A lemon is a sour fruit produced by the lemon tree. It is a popular fruit throughout the Seven Kingdoms and beyond, and is used primarily for its juice, which has both culinary and cleaning uses.
Dorne provides many exotic products which are uncommon in the rest of the Seven Kingdoms, such as lemons. Some lemon orchards in Dorne are watered by a spider's web of old canals. In Meereen, there are lemon trees in the lower terrace of the Great Pyramid.
Lemons have a strong citrus smell; the scent of lemons can trigger old memories. Dessert food made with lemons tends to be associated with comfort, so much so that Tyrion Lannister thinks of lemon pie sarcastically when considering a royal rescue from Daenerys Targaryen. The interior of manses in Pentos are sometimes scented with lemon.
