My lemon tree still has fruit on it that looks green but it is now blooming with lots of flowers. Should I pick the fruit even though some of it looks quite green?

These can take as long as nine months to ripen. If it has been this long then you can pick one and sample it. Color is not a good indicator of ripeness.
