I recently became obsessed with using fresh lemons for their juice (and a bit of cleaning). Fresh lemon juice is so much more flavorful than the bottled stuff!
But this meant that I suddenly had an abundance of lemon seeds. So, I thought, why not try to grow a lemon tree?
There are lots of guides on the internet about how to grow lemon trees. This is the method that worked for me:
- Collect your lemon seeds from lemons you use making delicious things (like cheese!).
- Wash the seeds, and then allow them to soak overnight.
- Plant in your chosen location. Make sure they're covered with about a 1/2 inch of soil.
- Keep the lemon-tree-to-be in a warm location, and keep the soil moist.
In a week or two, your seeds should sprout! I used about three lemons from the grocery store (the cheapest I could find), and got five seedlings. They will be living inside this winter. I can't wait to see how they do!
