The good news is that your lemon plant looks very sturdy and healthy.

The bad news is that you've got something of a wait ahead of you. Lemon trees grown from seed often take about 15 years before they actually produce lemons.

In the meantime, though, you have a great looking plant with wonderful-smelling leaves. You can read more about caring for lemons in containers here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lemons/growing-lemon-trees-containers.htm
