Taste of the Bible – Lemon


Citrus, or “goodly trees” are referred to in Leviticus 23:40 as one of four species Jews should use during Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. The kind of citrus that grew at the time was the citron, one of five citrus trees from which the common orange and lemons of today have evolved.

And you shall take on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days” Leviticus 23:40.
