i've had pure, cold pressed quince (cydonia oblonga) juice that might  
be a decent lemon juice substitute.  surely it has the acidity, though  
i haven't measured it.

oregon city, OR - zone 8a and wet

I've had fruit from  Malling 9 rootstock that was excruciatingly sour.

While everyone is contemplating their reply to Jerry, can anyone
recommend crabapple cultivars (or any other fruit source of juice)
useful as a temperate zone substitute for lemons?
