I have an Orange tree and a lemon tree. In the first couple of years both produced acceptible fruit. Two years ago the orange tree started producing very large, thick skin, bitter fruit, about the size of a grapefruit. Now this year the lemon tree is doing this. The trees are both 6 years old.

RE: Orange and lemon tree

I have an orange tree which has been bearing oranges for the past three years, this year it produced both thick- skinned sour lemons at the top part and sweet oranges at the lower part both at the very same time. It is very strange. How do you interpret this?
