Break a leaf and see if it smells lemony. I guess that would be smell to see if its lemony. Smiling

Lemon is a possibility; also some varieties of Lime, Orange, Grapefruit, Kumquat trees can all have thorns.

Trifolate orange. The seeds was brought with the chinese immigrants . it is fairly rare usually only found on real old homesteads that are abandoned. I found some last year. It will have fruit on it and it will be kinda sticky and slightly fuzzy. I make marmalade out of them though it takes alot as the small oranges are filled with seeds. The immigrants used these trees as a living fence to keep there herds in.

Trifoilate Orange has three part leaves as the name suggests. It is used as root stock for many citrus trees.This is some other citrus.
