Could you help?
« on: October 07, 2018, 03:04:42 AM »
This is a 25 year old seedling. It never had flowers.
Is it a lemon (seedling) ?

It seems to be lemon. It has an iron and nitrogen deficiency.
I have a 30 years old lemon that never bloomed. I neglected, it survived from -5C, died back, then started to grow again from roots.
The juvenile period for lemon is long, better graft it.

OK, I didn't see your link up top. Yes, lemon from seed take forever to mature & fruit. You would be better off grafting mature lemon budwood to it. You could cleft graft or bark graft.
