Citrus limon - Lemon Tree

Citrus limon - Lemon Tree (Citrus limon - Lemon Tree)

My grandmother's lemon tree just got a major trimming. This tree produces so many sweet lemons all would boggle your mind! (I think it's a Meyer's lemon) Photo taken May 12, 2011 in the San Francisco Bay Area.

What an amazing tree!

Wow....Those Lemons are Huge.........

20 May, 2011



Yes, Wow! They are very nice lemons and very, very juicy!

Yes, this tree is very productive and I think it's only 14 years old.

Lemon trees are very widely grown in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Yes, these lemons are huge and smell sweet (and taste sweet, also). I was suppose to take a bag full when I left to come back home, however, I forgot! :>(

Well, several of my neighbors give me tons of lemons all the I guess I don't have to be concerned with a shortage of them. :>)

Amazing huge amount of fruit on it :o)))

Lemon trees in coastal Cal. always have lots of fruit on them (all year).

My lemon tree is tiny compared to this and no fruit so far. Are all those Cymbidium Orchids??? Lucky lucky lady, your grandma.

24 May, 2011



Yes, these are only some of the many cymbidiums my grandmother has in her yard.

Next time you visit her..... take more pictures!

24 May, 2011


Yes, I need to...I was so busy I didn't take as many pics and I wanted to.

I forgot to get lemons from my grandmother when I left...however, I think I mentioned in a previous post I received a bag of fresh lemons from my neighbor yesterday.

The tree was pruned before I arrived there. However, I did some yard work for her...she is in her mid-nineties and can't do all the yard work she used to do.

Yes, my grandmother is still very healthy, although she can't walk as well as she used to.

This is only the patio the yard is in the back of where I'm taking this pics. These houses are old and have huge yards...there used to be many apricot orchards in this area at one time.

Most of the new homes are small and have virtually no yards in the San Francisco Bay Area. They're all geared for high density, which I hate!

This lemon tree is very impressive. Maybe these keep her young?! Wonderful stuff.

Large lemon, orange, tangerine, grapefruit and avocado trees are very widely grown in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Incredible. Really really nice place to live!! A friend lives in San Francisco and she's never mentioned that kind of stuff so I didn't know. I should ask her about it one day :-)

You'd be surprised what kind of interesting subtropical, exotic plants grow in the San Francisco Bay Area. I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years (not in the city itself, though -- it was always too cool) the suburbs get much, much warmer (many times 30 degrees warmer in summer). It's all about the micro-climates in California.

So did you live with your grandma then? Nosey me again lol

25 Nov, 2011


No, never lived with my grandmother. :>)
