Lemon Trees

Young Citrus Plant


Anonymous added on August 22, 2011 | Answered

I have grown a citrus plant from a seed. I believe it is a lemon. It is 5 years old. It is potted and is indoors during the long Canadian winter and outside in the hot and humid summer. When will it start blooming? Is there anything I can do? Will it bear fruit one day? What is the best fertilizer?

Citrus trees can take up to 6 years to mature and be able to bear fruit, especially when they are grown from seed. If you wait, then yes, it will eventually bloom and produce fruit.
