Started my Autumn clean up today and checked up on my little lemons which seem to have been growing for a whole year. The peel felt soft, like old lemons so I decided it was time to harvest.
Look at these cuties!
My tree is still pretty small and unhealthy looking but at least I got three little lemons.
I was pleased to see this when I cut one open.
Lots of juicy flesh!
I decided to make a butter lemon drizzle by heating lemon juice, butter and sugar. Tasted so delightful on waffles!
I have had this little pink lemonade tree for a year and I haven’t had any luck with any fruit yet. It produces some very fragrant white flowers that attract many bees but all the little lemons seem to drop after a few weeks. These little guys are the biggest ones I have ever had. Hopefully they will ripen to full size. They grow very slowly and since I have never grown any citrus before, I am not sure if this is normal.
