First Meyer Lemon Blossoms :-)

Hi everyone,

These are the first two blossoms on my Meyer Lemon tree! The buds opened a couple days ago and today, I have three more open. Before I brought it inside for the winter, a bumblebee pollenated the first two blossoms. Today, I took a Q-Tip and pollenated the three blossoms. Keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have some developing fruit in the future!

Glad to see that your tree is blooming for you! I love the fragrance from my Meyer tree flowers. I also wanted to tell you that your meyer lemon flowers shouldn't need pollination. I hope you get a few lemons! Meyer lemons are my favorite lemon!

Thank you, Andrew!

I have my tree sitting in my east-facing bedroom window, so I hope it'll get enough light for this winter. The fragrance is wonderful! To my surprise, when I smelled the flowers for the first time, I thought they would smell more lemon-like, but, it's still very pleasant!

Hi Mike! I hope you're doing well!

I relocated my Meyer Lemon to the south facing window yesterday. While sitting in the same room as it last night, I kept catching whiffs of the blossoms :-).
