lemon vs lemongrass

While lemon and lemongrass both have the word “lemon” in it they are not the same at all. In fact, I find it somewhat funny and interesting that people even ask this question. But I have been asked it more than once, so I thought I would write this blog post. In summary here are some of the similarities and differences between lemon and lemongrass.
