The exact manifestation is debated amongst botanists. Currently, the thought is that the Eureka Lemon is actually a hybrid. Its 5% citric acid concentration allow for its unique distinction in the Citrus genus. Its low potential hydrogen (pH) concentration allow for its little irritant properties in the stomach parenchyma. Furthermore, can be grown and appreciated in any district in California. Once established, requires no water.
