World's Largest Lemon.

World's Largest Lemon

The World's Largest Lemon is still in Lemon Grove! Well, if it really is the world's largest. Not that I have any doubts, but then again, since the last entry, another world's largest lemon may be around.

World's Largest Lemon

Large lemon, sits next to the San Diego Trolley tracks at the corner of Broadway and Main St., in the city of Lemon Grove. Originally located about 100 yards farther down the tracks, it was relocated around 1980 to its present location.

[Luke Jungers, 06/15/2002]

The lemon was built in 1928, making it the World's Oldest as well as Largest.

Giant Lemon

Civic pride has caused the town to create a giant lemon. It's oddly fitting in many ways. This can be found in the downtown of Lemon Grove, which is just east of San Diego, CA.

[Richard Burkett, 07/18/1997]

We reported on the Lemongrove in Oxford, PA, which has its own brand of lemons.
