My lemon tree (in a large pot & about 3 years old) has 8 lemons and all are still green. The tree now has blooms which I assume will be next years lemons. Should I pick the lemons to encourage more blooms? I picked one and it was really good and the skin smooth and had a great scent. Or should I leave the lemons and pick them as needed?
