Do I have a lime bush?
I was given a lemon bush in May. It has grown very well and been pruned as needed. There are lots of dark green fruit on it. I think it must have gotten mixed up with other plants and is actually a lime. Some of my fruit are larger than an egg and remain green! How can I tell when they are ready to pick? I have one large flower blooming and another has just started. Is that the usual for this time of year? I have brought the plant indoors now. It's on my counter under a fluorescent light. Is that adequate?

It can take upwards of 9 months for lemons to ripen.
Citrus need lots of sunlight, water and nutrients to grow.
