Meyers lemon tree

What happens to the lemon if it stays on the tree all winter? Is the lemon juice still good? I just took 35 lemons off my tree that had been on there all winter. Some have those brown spots on them. Does the juice become harmful or just more bitter? J. Gilbert

The lemon juice should still be good, as long as the fruit smells good when you cut it open. If the fruit is shriveled up or overly squishy, it might either have gone bad or have little juice left. Otherwise, should be fine.
