Explanation:
Hi, I tried to post this earlier, but couldn't get the *submit* to work, so am trying again. This is not a citrus fruit, but rather an oriental plant, which, indeed, looks like tall grass. The Shorter OED has: "a lemon-scented grass, cymbopogon citratus, native to southern India and Sri Lanka (Ceylon), which yields an oil used in perfumery and cookery" In Mexico, it is called *té limón* I have also found *HIERBA LUISA (Cymbopogon citratus stapt)* at URL http://www.unas.edu.pe/invagr.htm [Peru] *Cymbopogon citratus
-- Zacate de limón* at URL http://www.catie.ac.cr/germoplasma/recfitogen2.htm [can't figure out country--maybe you can] *Lemongrás - Hierba Limón - at URL http://members.es.tripod.de/aromaterapia/abc/L_ac.html [Spain] *zacate limón (Cymbopogon citratus)* at URL http://www.intertel.hn/org/ciathill/BIBLIOT/DP13/Resdp13.htm [Honduras] *Té limón Cymbopogon citratus DC. Stapf. * at URL http://www.tlahui.com/tlahui2/atlacu3.htm [Central Mexico] *HIERBA LIMON cymbopogon citratus * at URL http://www.essentialoils.com/spanish/aceites.html [British Web site, so probably European Spanish] Hint: when you need to look up the common name for a plant in another language, look up the term you already have in a dictionary, where you should find the scientific name. You can then do a Web search on Alta Vista, using the scientific name and running the search in the language you need.
