Janet,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I cannot tell from the description which type of citrus you have. Allow some to stay on the tree until they start to turn yellow or orange. Then take a sample to your County Extension Office and see if they can identify them for you.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
