Lemon tree

Lemon tree (Citrus × limon)

A co-worker brought in a few little green sprouts in styrofoam cups that he had planted seeds from a commercial lemon into. This is two years later. I keep trimming it back, as it tends to grow too tall for a houseplant, and it is too cold outside for it to overwinter.

Your lemon looks very healthy. I enjoy starting plants like this. I recently potted an avocado and the leaves are just starting to form. Very enjoyable to watch them grow.
