Here is your answer 
Lemon is classified as a type of fruit mainly because it contains seeds.In botany, a fruit is disclosed as a flowering plant that is derived from specific tissues of the flowers, most commonly one or more ovaries. Fruits are how spread seeds plants. If a plant produces edible fruits, these fruits bearing seeds can be consumed. By contrast, a plant is defined as an edible plant or plant part is a fruit or a seed.
