Excerpt from The Brown Rot of the Lemon
It. Will be necessary to give a brief consideration to this subject for the better understanding of what is to follow. The lemon, like other citrus fruits, is an evergreen tree of semi-tropic habit, somewhat more easily affected by frost than the orange. As already stated the tree is peculiar in producing its fruit all the year round; that is to say, at almost any time in the year mature fruit, blossoms, and fruit in all stages of development may be found on the same tree. (see cover illustration.) Inasmuch as winter is the usual season of maturity of citrus fruits, a time when lemons are least in demand, this is a very valuable feature. There is a tendency to produce the bulk of the crop in winter and spring, especially in some varieties like the Lisbon, which feature is not at all desirable from the standpoint of the grower.
