Rusticular's Edible Fruits
Update: 1780 days 24hrs

Comments: - Annual prune.  Vigorous growth with water shoots after rain. Very thorny, few fruits. Prone to white citrus louse, leaf miner, and citrus shield bugs.

Almost Everbearing.  Seems to always have some lemons on the way and ripening except for a month or two a year. Kept pruned low to ensure easy picking, open vase shaped centre. Planted in middle of vegie bed to ensure good watering and no weed competition.Ocassionally grow lettuce and radish underneath to keep soil loose. lemon balm close by seems to help with  bug prevention.
