Q.How Long Until My Lemon Tree Bares Fruit?

Zone 55330 | Anonymous added on February 7, 2024 | Answered

I purchased a lemon from a store, slice and put in my waters. Well I collect a few of the seeds and I ended up growing 3 lemon trees. I have one in my living that is roughly 4ft tall. It will be 9 years old this year. I haven’t seen a flower on it yet. It got very full this year with our wood stove giving out lots of dry heat. I’m getting very antsy as this tree takes up a lot of space and I yet haven’t had a lemon on it. Smells wonderful.
