Component analysis and antioxidant activity of Citrus limon

  title={Component analysis and antioxidant activity of Citrus limon},
  • Published 2014
This study investigates the effects of harvest times, fruit sizes, and parts of lemon fruit on the contents of hesperidin, diosmin, limettin and bergapten, and the antioxidant properties of Citrus limon. Results show that hesperidin content was significantly higher at peak harvest period (6.11 and 7.57 mg/g in June and September, respectively). However, the contents of diosmin and bergapten were highest in October and that of limettin was highest in the off season (that is, December and January… Expand
