|Meyer Lemon #1|
We've not been super successful with our plantings, but the one thing that's been really bearing is the Meyer Lemon tree.
We were told to plant the Meyer lemon at the nursery because they said it bore the sweetest, juiciest fruit. It does.
We planted one first in the back but it doesn't produce a whole lot since it doesn't get as much direct sun.

Then my brother, Dennis planted one for mom in the front when we were still on the mainland since she said she needed more lemons to make her much requested Lemon Chicken. This tree produces a bumper crop.
Dennis comes over weekly to pick up his bag of lemons that mom picks for him. He likes lemonade. The tree seems to bear fruit all year long with brief rests in between. It really amazes me.
Art is dying to plant a miniature mango tree somewhere, but everyone shudders and advises him not to because they produce so much yard waste and grow too quickly. Then he thought he'd try avocado and again everybody told him not to. We have a very small property. He's not thrilled with having two lemon trees. What do you do with lemons besides sticking slices in water? We don't make desserts because we avoid sweets. So what else can you do with them?
