Lemon tree is a folk song written by Will Holt in the 1960s. The melody is based on the Brazilian folk song Meu limão, meu limoeiro, arranged by José Carlos Burle in 1937 and became known by the Brazilian singerWilson Simonal. The song compares love with a lemon tree (lemon tree): "Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet, but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat."
The song was recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary, among others, Chad & Jeremy, The Kingston Trio, The Seekers, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Sandie Shaw and Roger Whittaker. In 1965 Trini Lopez took the most successful version of the song.
