More fruit than I know what to do with!

The first year we got one lemon off it. This year there are close to 3 dozen. I have made lemon curd, lemon chess bars. I've squeezed it on salmon and broccoli and spinach and asparagus. Just slicing one fills the whole kitchen with a wonderful fragrance. I'm in zone 7, so it comes into the sunroom when the temps drop below 30. I'm recommending it to all my friends.

The fruit on this is incredible! Mild, lemon to die for. Beautiful plant, fragrant blooms during winter - great plant. Summers outdoor, winters inside in zone 7.
