Lemon tree not growing lemons!!

United States

I have a lemon tree that I understand my mother grew from a pip back in the 1960's. It is kept in an open porch with a roof overhead all year round. It is 8ft tall extremely healthy with much new growth coming through at the moment. The problem is it has never flowered nor obviously borne fruit. Any ideas where I'm going wrong. I've started giving it citrus food which you should apparently do both in the winter and the summer. Am I missing a trick ?



Wondering if it is self fertile, apples need a pollinator, not sure about lemon varieties. I bought one from a nursery and it produced flowers and fruit in the first year, even though something found the leaves
