Are Lemons come from Lemongrass?

There is one statement from a young teen who was talking to his friend about Lemon and Lemongrass. I overheard their conversation and i was shocked with the statement...

"Lemon is from Lemongrass", Lemon is the fruits and Lemongrass is the leaves... I was starting to laugh out loud. Hey man, how can Lemon is from Lemongrass? Although Lemongrass do contain the word Lemon.

So, how does the Lemongrass looks like?

So, now if Lemon come from Lemongrass... where can you see the Lemon... Buried in the soil like Potatoes? Luckily the person did not continue to say that... *sweat

It's sad that the new generation do not have a good general knowledge on what is surrounding them... they hardly read other than what published inside Facebook... Please do not assume that Lemongrass should be the tree for producing Lemon. Just because the Lemongrass have the word of Lemon... LoL

Xjion89: Not really funny if you think about it. It's a sad case... anyway, we have to change our education system. Maybe place the education material into Facebook. :p
