Lemons are ripe and ready to pick once they have completely turned yellow. However, slightly green-yellow ones can still be picked and will normally ripen off the tree, provided they are large enough. They should also be somewhat heavy feeling and hard with a ‘glossy’ look to them. If it’s kind of squishy, you’ve waited too long. The lemon should also be about 2-3 inches in diameter.
