What fruit has the highest level of citric acid?

Asked by Benson Villegas

Among fruits, citric acid is most concentrated in lemons and limes,1 comprising as much as 8% of the dry fruit weight. A major source of citric acid in vivo results from endogenous metabolism in the mitochondria via the production of ATP in the citric acid cycle.
