Citrus ID from flower bud (?)
« on: October 07, 2020, 05:27:01 PM »
I have an unidentifed citrus tree i aquired in a container... saved from my neighbor's trash. Neighbor knows nothing about it. No info about it except what I can observe.

I pruned it because it was massively lopsided and needs reshaping. It exploded with flowers.

Can anyone give me a clue of what this might be based on the flowers?  Some of the flowers have light purple on them. Most are just white. They are all white when opened.

Even in the relm of lemon, orange, grapefruit would help.  It is 3 ft (tall) x 4ft (wide) has a few small (1cm) spines.

Because the flowers have a purple tint it could well be a lemon.  Crush a leaf and notice if the smell is that of a lemon.
