Oh, how lovely!! I miss having lemon, orange and grapefruit trees right out side my door! Lucky you!
Together, trees make an ecosystem that tempers the extremes of heat & cold, stores lots of water, & makes a lot of humidity. In this environment, trees can live to be very old. To get to this point, the community must remain intact no matter what.

That is gorgeous. We have a lemon tree but I have never seen it look like that.

I’ve been hitting it with Urban Farms ‘Apples and Oranges’ formula for the last year; it seems to like it.
It’s on a dwarfing rootstock and I have it trimmed to a rounded shrub to keep the fruit within harvesting reach.
Same with the lime tree, also just starting to flower.

Sqwib is that from seed? I abandoned my seedlings after I read that it might take up to 7 years before they bear fruit.
I have Yuzu, Mandarin, Mayer & regular lemon trees. All are done except the regular lemon, it has many green fruit ripening soon.

I have one citrus seedling. During the past seen years, it has dropped its leaves and shriveled up, just to spring back to life and push out new leaves and branches.. don't give up hope yet..

No, it's dead, I have seen toothpicks with more life than this.
I have a Lime tree that is doing well, and I did replace the Lemon tree both under grow lights inside.

Citrus isn't blooming yet. Usually mid-March here. I have Meyer and Pink Lemonade lemons, Mexican Lime, and a blood orange.
Beautiful lemon tree @PlainJane.

No blooms on my Bearss lemon, it is only in the ground for 8 mos. I am thinking it is pushing roots but it is growing rapidly. Lychee, peaches, jack fruit and mango are loaded with promise.
