The Verigated Pink Lemon, which is what it says on the label, was planted in August 2010 along with every other type of citrus the guy had.
It didnt like the drought that followed combined with being covered in weeds and dropped most of its leaves.
this is struggling a bit as I think its being over crowded by the Mexican Petunias but I think I cut them all back far enough to give a head start into 2015.
Its doing OK but I think it was being a bit crowded out so I have just back all the Mexican Petunias that were crowding it. Itr does look like its got some newer growth, but not in the area I would preffer.
Hopefully this season it will become established and start to dominate its spot.
Not much to shout about really, seems to have sent up a strong stem but not as exciting as the Meyers Lemon. Maybe its a bit too crowded for it? Or maybe theres not enough sun?.
Pretty much as big as it was, no massive growth signs.
It looks a bit lost right now, I guess I can only wait until it looks a bit more tree shaped. It does look like it has some fruit on it though?
Im quite looking forward to lemon juice. The Verigated Pink Lemon should be amongst the group photo somewhere. In the photo to the right taken April 2011 you can just about make out above the discarded paper towel a young fruit? Is it? How exciting!!!
To be honest, its hard to imagine that this has only been in the ground for 1 year, it feels like forever so I shouldnt expect too much, but its definatly doing OK.
