Default My Lemon is soooooo close!!! :)

She just has a little green on one side but other than that, she's pretty close!!



It's been sitting there for a while so she better be worth it!! LOL

Feels like she's going to have thick walls. Going to give her a good drink before I pick it too.

This is very cool! How old is your tree? I just got one lemon seed to sprout and it got its first true leaves. I've got a bunch of key lime seeds germinating and more lemon seeds in the process.

Don't know how old Charley. Bought it roadside in Fla last March. It was full of flowers already and one grew out of them.

Probably going to pick it this weekend. I can't wait anymore!!! LOL

It's probably close to 3 ft if it was in the ground. No idea how old that makes it.

Going to post pics this weekend when I cut it...and add it to my sweet tea!!

I remember you asking about it I wasn't too far off.

Yep Worth, you suggested to wait until Dec. The green has been there for a while so I figure it may be as ripe as she is going to get. Just my guess.

I read somewhere that an orange would turn orange and back to green again.
What a hoot.
