Can a fruit (Citrus) grown from a parthenogenic offshoot of a seed shell flower/set fruit?

Welcome!

I'm not sure I understand the queston. Are you saying you grew a citrus plant from a seed found in a seedless fruit? And you want to know if this seed will produce fruit in the future?

The definition of 'seedless' citrus is 'less than 6 seeds per fruit'. So a tree grown from these seeds will do what citrus do: flower and fruit.

Welcome! I didn't understand the question either, Daisy, but I wonder if it relates to micropropagation.
