The Eureka lemon was developed in California where mild frost free coastal climate could support a more tender cultivar. Genus Citrus originates in Asia. Twelfth century Arab traders introduced them to Spain and from there it spread to the California missions. It is this early mission fruit that became the breeding stock for many of our contemporary commercial varieties.
