Lemon is a 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[1] and cleaning uses.[2]. Dorne provides many exotic products which are uncommon in the rest of the Seven Kingdoms, such as lemons. [3] Some lemon orchards in Dorne are watered by a spiders web of old canals. [4] In Meereen there are lemon trees in the lower terrace of the Great Pyramid . [5] Lemons have a strong smell, when encountering the scent of lemon it can trigger old memories in many characters. 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.[6] Lemons can also feature in heraldry, House Dalt of Lemonwood arms are a purple field strewn with lemons.[7][8]


  • Lemon water can be used to freshen the breath[9]
  • Chief ingredient of lemon cake
