My young lemon tree doesn’t have branches

I grew it from a seed from a Walmart lemon. This will be the second winter for it. It’s in a big enough pot with potting soil and it’s about almost chest high on me. I’m 5 foot 6 tall. It doesn’t have any branches in it. Just the one tall shoot.

It probably won’t grow true to type from seed. So you may not get a lemon like you are expecting. However, if you’d like it to branch, you can try cutting the top off about 6 inches to encourage branching. If new sprouts form at the top you can select a new leader and cut away the others.
