DWARF LEMON - MEYER Citrus limon

Lemon Meyer Lemon - Meyer Botanical Gardens in Brisbane Lemon Blossom with Bee

This popular variety of 'lemon' is not a true lemon but likely to be a natural hybrid between a lemon and an orange. The lower acidity and reduced bitterness makes it one of the most widely grown home-garden varieties. Very hardy and prolific. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Although this was bought as a dwarf meyer (not from Daleys), I think it is too sour to be a Meyer. It is on its own roots and is only 1m tall but bears heavily. It is a great fruit tree.

A friend has one which fruits prolifically and love the juice from these lemons. AS we use lemons almost daily, this is a must fruit tree for our yard.

Question:

Have I got a dud?  I bought my first meyer as a small bush and has been planted into large pot and grown steadily for three years. Is large and bushy and attractive although leaves yellow at the moment.  BUT this Meyer has THORNS!!!! and not one flower at all in 3 years.
