First ever homegrown pink lemonade lemons!

2 Oct

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!

Pink lemonade little lemons

11 Dec

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. 20111211-093043.jpg
