I bought it n spring 2016. It has about ten lemons of various sizes.The original ones are quite large and have been "holding on" for 3-4 months now. Still green,will they ever turn yellow???

DrDoug - it takes about 9 months (give or take) from fruit set to harvesting ripe lemons. Patience is rewarded. Smiling

Thanks for your input. A local company states the processing will create the color more than time. I couldn't wait so I tried one ,squeezed it, and found it was delicious. Reporting in spring was recommended. I'm learning....

And keep up a fertilizer routine for it. Citrus is one that likes fertilizer year-round.
