Q.Lemon Tree – Tree Vs. Vine

Zone 94103 | jtaraborrelli added on August 21, 2022 | Answered

I have been planting lemon trees from seed for a couple months, but I am noticing that some of the seeds are developing into a vine-like sapling as opposed to a more standard young tree. Is there any reason for this? Are these different types of lemons?

It appears that some other seed has made its way into the soil at some point. That does not appear to be a citrus.

However, if you crush the leaves and get that standard "citrus" smell... There is a chance that it could be infected with a viral infection.

This is not likely, as it would have spread to the other plants, but is a possibility.
