Citrus in cooking refers to the fruits and by-products of flowering plants that produce citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, grapefruit, tangerines, citron, and limes. These fruits are notable for their fragrance contained in the rind.

The other notable characteristic of these plants is the presence of high quantities of citric acid contained in the juice and are a good source of vitamin C.
