A great deal depends on when they're picked. As lemons ripen on the tree they develop a sweetness along with the sour. Store bought lemons are picked green and artificially ripened. They have no sweet or sour, only bitter. Most people don't realize that, but I grew up with lemons and oranges and mandarins and tangerines and the like. We had all manner of citrus trees. And all those fruits taste wonderfully better when you can pick them sun ripened right off the trees.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.
