You must have also seen a lemon tree planted in some or the other house, but we are showing you such a unique lemon tree here, which can surprise you.

Bihar’s special seed and importance related to Chhath
The owner of the tree, Sanju Sharma, told that 20 years ago, the seeds of this lemon had come from Bihar to Indore by her mother-in-law. Today a tree has grown from that seed. This lemon is known as Gagar lemon in Bihar. In Bihar, this tree gives fruit only once in a year, but the specialty of this tree is that in Indore this tree is giving fruit twice a year.
Sanju Sharma told that Gagar Lemon is needed during Chhath Puja in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. This is the reason that the demand for this lemon increases during Chhath and those celebrating Chhath Puja also come from far and wide to buy this lemon. He said that his family is not selling this lemon, but gives it to those who meet in the same way because it is taken in worship.
And there are some special things
According to Sharma, people from all over the city also come for the treatment of jaundice. They say that this Gagar lemon cures jaundice. Although the taste of this lemon is such that it is difficult to eat it directly. Its powder is also used in bakery products.
