Q.My Meyer Lemon tree has some branches with long, sharp thorns

Zone Zone 5; Spokane, Washingaton | Elaine added on September 6, 2014 | Answered

Is this normal? This is an indoor tree from late September until May, when I take it outdoors. It takes at least 2 years for the lemons to mature and ripen.

Yes, thorns on citrus trees are totally normal and natural. You can cut them off if you are worried by them.
