I took a bunch of photos of the lemons on my Meyer lemon tree just now. Its still blooming and setting fruit. But today’s lemon count was a little lower than my last one – 26 instead of 33. Maybe a few have dropped off, but its hard to count them, so the difference may be just my counting.

  • Hi Kathy, the Meyer lemon tree naturally sheds excess fruit it cannot handle. I remember getting clusters of 6 – 10 baby lemons but unusually the number drops down to 2 – 3 per cluster as they grow.

    Last year, I got 9 HUGE lemons from my potted tree. I ended up canning about 16 half-pint jars of marmalade. This year, I think I'll get about 12 – 15 medium sized lemons.

  • I have one cluster of 3, which is very pretty. The rest are single lemons. The tree looks healthier than it ever has right now. I hope to have enough for marmalade some day!
