Our neighbors have a citrus tree and we haven’t quite figured out what the fruit is exactly. We cut one open today and it smelled like a lemon, but tasted sweeter than one. Since it is quite larger than a normal lemon, we concluded it may be a cross of a lemon and an orange, or a weird breed of lemon that we haven’t ever seen or tasted.

On this day..

it could be an orange tree with very light/ yellow oranges. I’ve seen oranges that look like lemons.our lemons seem to never get yellow well our trees are still babies. but we actually have 4 lemons this year woo hoo!!

It looks exactly like my orange tree. My lovely girlfriend and I decided we were going to cross an orange and lemon tree to create a hybrid lemorange tree just the other day. UNFORTUNATLY SOMEONE ALREADY HAS!!!! I thought we were going to be rich and famous (laugh out loud). Awsome pic though, very interesting…You should ask your neighbors and see what the dealeo is (and of course post your response).

On a drive one Saturday near the Condamine River Road QLD Australia, we came across what we thought was a lemon tree overloaded. We stopped and helped ourselves but when smelling the fruit it was more like an orange. We named it a ” Lemonge” without any knowledge of a Lemorange, which we later discovered on Google.
Anyway we had a nice tang to add to our evening Corona beers.

We have a lemorange tree. Came with the house. I can’t use it for anything but juice. Scampi – uh, no, it’s to orangey. Jerk chicken, uh, no, it’s too lemony. Pain in the ass tree. I might be able to use it for marinating some type of Asian chicken but haven’t figured it out yet.
