Meyer Lemon Question
Hello experts! I have a three year old Meyer (planted in the ground) and it's doing fabulous. My next post will show it's progress in three years. However, I'm concerned about it because I noticed this morning some thorns on a couple of branches. From perusing this forum, I've read that usually if your branches have thorns, it's coming from the rootstock and not the grafted citrus. Is that correct.
I checked the branch and it is not coming from below the bud union. As a matter of fact, it's coming from a lateral branch that does not have any thorns! I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not. What do you experts think?
The first picture is very unusual for me. I know Meyers can set fruit and bloom at the same the same time, but mine never has, so I decided to take a picture for posterity.
