Some citron varieties may look like lemons, but citrons are a different fruit. Citrons are said to be the parent fruit of lemons, together with bitter oranges.
The citron is a large fragrant citrus fruit with a thick rind. It is one of the original citrus fruits from which all other citrus types developed through natural hybrid speciation or artificial hybridization. Though citron cultivars take on a wide variety of physical forms, they are all closely related genetically.
