Lemons the Size of Softballs!





Back in April, Mr. P surprised Mrs. P with a 3 foot lemon tree. Boy were we in for a surprise! The tree flowered beautifully and grew about 15 lemons. At first, the lemons were green, so we left them on the tree a few more weeks. They continued to grow and grow and grow until they were the size of softballs! They just would not stop growing! The pictures above really demonstrate just how over sized the lemons were.



Aren't they the biggest lemons you have ever seen?

  7. We actually got it in lowes! We had no idea the lemons would grow that big. Mind you the tree is only 3 feet tall!

  8. Craving summer, I've just made Lemon, Ginger and Mint Barley Water - what I wouldn't have done to have lemons like these beauties at my disposal!
