One of the major differences between lemon and citron can be seen when you consider the quantity of juice you can derive from each fruit. Those who are familiar with the two fruits know lemon has more juice compared to citron. Another difference between the two is that; although the two fruits are used for medicinal purposes, however, the citron was formerly being used for these purposes.

Aside from these little differences, citron and lemon are similar in the sense that they belong to the same family, i.e., the citrus family. Also, in terms of what they are used for, there is no big difference between the two.

For instance, aside from the fact that they have certain medicinal values, they are also used in making products like perfumes, oils, flavorings, etc. Also, both have similar tastes. However, what could also be a difference is that the two fruits can't be substituted for all kinds of foods.

Some may think that citron is another term that is used to describe lemon, but actually, these are two different things. Lemon refers to the citrus fruit that is yellowish in color and has a sort of rounded oval shape.

Citron refers to a citrus fruit that looks highly similar to lemons, but the main difference is its color. Instead of being just yellow, Citron has a more greenish-yellow color.

Lemons and citrons are both very fragrant fruits. If you are wondering which among the two is harder to find, you will realize that citron is going to be hard to find in the grocery store, but you will probably see a lot of lemons.
