I planted a citrus seed about 10 years ago, and the tree is now about 6 feet tall. Will it ever blossom and bear fruit? It's either an orange or grapefruit tree. No signs of blossoms yet.

Probably in time. Seedlings are slow to mature and come into bearing. This is one of the reasons citrus fruit trees are grafted. It is difficult to say just how long it will take for your tree to start bearing. It also needs full sun or close to it in order to have the energy necessary to produce blooms and fruit. Good luck!
