This little tree (more of a large shrub than a tree) has fruit or fruit forming the entire 12 months of the year. Its a very rare day that we wander out for a lemon and there isn't one to be found. At the same time you can find lemon blossom, green lemons and ripe golden yellow ones all over the tree. An Italian friend of ours loves to cut them and sprinkle salt over the flesh and she eats them like that! We often give our visitors a bag full to take home. Every now and then I strip the tree of ripe fruit and we give them away at our front gate.
