The Last of the Fruit?

Look what I found in my backyard!
Lemon Tree
You can't see? Let's get a little closer.
It's a lemon! At least I'm pretty sure it's a lemon. I know I told you before I had an apricot tree, but am pretty sure it's actually a peach. I never even got to try the fruit to confirm, since the birds stole the fruit, so I'll have to wait till next year to confirm. But I don't see how I could be wrong about this being a lemon, right?

Either way this brings the fruit tree count to 5 (kumquats, figs, satsumas, peaches, lemons), which I think is probably more than average. Either way I love our trees and that each new season there's more fruit to discover. I think this I officially it, but we'll see what happens!


  1. what a find! I love lemons! :) my parents' house has citrus trees too... tangerines mostly. there is an unidentifiable tree... I think we decided it was nectarines but it doesn't seem to produce fruit anymore. but the neighbors used to have a lemon tree that hung a bit over into our yard so I used to "steal" lemons as a kid. what can I say? I love lemons!

  2. Your backyard is such a great fruit find!! What a great bonus to the house!
