“Nearly every day, for cooking, degreasing pans, or washing dishes, at least one lemon is used. Typically, lemon seeds are discarded. However, many are unaware that these seeds can be used in various ways and are incredibly useful in numerous situations.
Lemon Seeds: More Than Just Leftovers
Lemon, a citrus fruit with a thousand uses, can enhance any dish, making it unique and irreplaceable. Even a salad can become delicious with just a splash of lemon juice. When squeezing lemons, seeds often fall out, or we remove them ourselves to avoid the unpleasant experience of biting into small, hard seeds while eating.
Germinating Lemon Seeds in a Glass
Lemon seeds are far from useless as you might think; they can actually be repurposed, both in the garden and at home. One of the most useful and practical methods is to germinate them. With little effort, you can grow a beautiful plant. It’s not difficult; just a few minutes and a little effort, and you’re done.
To germinate lemon seeds, first wash them under running water to remove any remnants of the fruit’s flesh. Use room temperature water, not boiling water. Then, dry them slowly and carefully. Place them on a tissue and, using tweezers, try to remove the covering shell of the seed. Since the seed is moist, the shell is soft, making it an easier process than you might think. Just pull at a corner of the skin. Then, put the seed in a yogurt jar with damp cotton wool for germination. Within a week, a small green shoot should appear. Only after roots have formed should it be planted in a pot with soft, permeable soil. Keep it in a warm place, ideally between 18° and 26°C, ensuring plenty of light but not direct sunlight.
