For those who are confused:

  • What the Dutch call a 'citroen' is a 'lemon' in English
  • What the Dutch call a 'limoen' is a 'lime' in English
  • What the English call a 'citron' doesn't really have a name in Dutch, so we describe it as 'De vrucht van een sukadeboom' (The fruit of a citron tree)

Honestly, I am more confused about this fearless lemon!

If 'sukadeboom' is 'citron tree' then wouldn't 'citron' be 'sukade'?

Which is strange considering it has a yellow belly.

I guess lemons can be fearless if oranges can be annoying.

Out of curiosity, why is "The lemon has shown no fear" not accepted?

I don't know why it wasn't accepted for you, because it is in the system.

Bedankt! I was fairly sure of my answer; but sometimes I go too fast with the typing... perhaps I missed something. Glad to know it is correct.
