Lemons with coarse and thick skin have less juice. Shoppers should choose lemons with smooth skins and are heavy for their size; lemon skin with streaks of green can indicate higher acidity levels. The fruit will also last indoors at room temperature for about a week before becoming soft and wrinkled.

Many recipes include lemon zest, which is the thin, colored outer portion of the citrus peel. The white pith should never be used because it will give the dish a bitter flavor. California is the largest producer of lemons in the United States, with Arizona a distant second.

Since milligrams per teaspoon is not a standard form of measurement for density, as milligrams are part of the metric system and teaspoons are part of the imperial system, some simple conversions must take place.
