A lemon was a sour citrus fruit native to Earth.

In 2367, Jean-Luc Picard offered Simon Tarses lemon for his tea, but he declined. Admiral Norah Satie drank her tea with lemon. (TNG: "The Drumhead") Beverly Crusher also ordered lemon tea from the replicator that year. (TNG: "The Host")

In 2370, Benjamin Sisko requested a Chiraltan tea with a double twist of lemon. (DS9: "Second Sight")

Ensign Michael Parsons usually liked his pejuta hot with lemon. (VOY: "Cathexis")

Lemons were also used to make lemonade. (VOY: "Caretaker", "Future's End")

Metaphorically, a lemon was something that failed to live up to expectations. In 2366, Captain Picard hoped the Barzan wormhole wouldn't turn out as the "proverbial lemon". Data was unfamiliar with the expression. (TNG: "The Price") In 2375, Tom Paris feared that the Quantum slipstream drive was a lemon. (VOY: "Timeless")
