The biggest lemon I've ever seen

Wasnt impressed with the materials they made it out of. But on the road trip of seeing giant objects made for no real reason, this is a must see!

I live in Lemon Grove and see this Lemon every single day. It's quaint and helps you remember the name of the town. Don't plan a trip to see the lemon. It's not exactly a tourist attraction. Also don't expect to see lemon trees. It is just a lower rent area of San Diego. Not a tourist destination.

The giant lemon sits near the train tracks in Lemon Grove. Originally part of a parade float, built in 1928, is one of those roadside attractions that harken back days of old. Stop by and see it! I recommend!
