A 285-year-old lemon found in the back of an old cabinet drawer has been auctioned for $1,780 (about N1.8m) in England.

Brettells Auctioneers in Shropshire said a 19th century cabinet was brought to the auction house by a family who said it belonged to a deceased uncle.

A specialist was photographing the cabinet for sale when the lemon was discovered in the back of a drawer, UPI reports.

The fruit was inscribed with the message: “Given By Mr P Lu Franchini Nov 4, 1739 to Miss E Baxter.”

The auction house decided to attempt to sell the aged lemon, and officials were shocked when it fetched a high bid of $1,780.

The cabinet, meanwhile, sold for just $40.
