hi lemon

in english, lemon is a fruit as you said, nothing else

the taste is of course sour, hence somethings being refered to as a "lemon"

most often a bad car is refered to as a lemon, as in no good.

why, i dont know,maybe the car went sour.

but no, women are not lemons, if anybody calls you that, call them as cus,cus, it tastes worse
