Color your World: Laser Lemon

Lemon is a color somewhat resembling yellow and named after the lemon fruit. The color lemon is a representation of the color of the outer skin of a lemon.

The first recorded use of lemon as a color name in English was in 1598.

1990 was also the year Crayola expanded their fluorescent line to include another eight colors.  In addition to expanding them, they also took the opportunity to rename the other original colors by giving them more descriptive names while dropping the “FLUORESCENT” reference from the name. The color laser lemon was named by Crayola in 1990. Before that, from its formulation in 1972 to 1990, it had been incorrectly been named chartreuse.
