Lemon Zest

Back in January of 2017 I wrote this post about the flowering of my indoor dwarf lemon tree. I had a horde of blossoms, and was trying to figure out how to make sure they would pollinate without the assistance of outside insects that we didn’t inside the house.

In April of 2017 I wrote this post about the success of the pollination effort, with at least 10 very small green lemons growing on the tree.

Today I have 4 probably ripe lemons I hope to harvest soon — once I figure out what use to make of them. It took a good year to get to these ripe lemons, and I don’t know where or how many of the green ones disappeared to, but 4 lemons is a small harvest but a big success after the years of owning the tree with no harvest.  And it is much better than the harvest on the dwarf lime tree — with only a couple blossoms ever and no fruit ever started.

So here are a few pictures of the lemons  before they get harvested.
