Q.

Meyer Lemon or Lime Tree?

Zone Annapolis,Maryland Zone 7? | Anonymous added on June 9, 2016 | Answered

I bought what was marked as a Meyer Lemon tree but the fruit is looking increasingly like lime. One is already larger than most normal lemons, fully round, and still very green--although ever so slightly lighter green now as the summer begins. It is also in full bloom again, even though there are two ripening fruits on it. Is there anything distinctive about the leaves that will help me decide to a) pick the lime soon or b) wait for the lemon to turn yellow? Thanks!

A Meyer Lemon Tree is a Hybrid cross between a lemon and an orange.
To my knowledge the shape is slightly rounded.
