Blossoms on a Meyer lemon tree, just beginning to fruit

Meyer lemon blossoms

Meyer Lemon (Citrus × meyeri)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

The blossoms on one of our lemon trees are beginning to fruit right before our eyes.  This photo shows several stages of the flower-to-fruit transition all in one blossom cluster.  These blossoms are on a Meyer lemon tree.   The blossoms are deliciously fragrant, and the fruit is exceptionally juicy.  The juice is excellent for fresh lemonade and for cooking.

That's cool to see the whole growing process on one branch. I can just imagine the smell as the fruit matures - must be so heavenly!

I'm so envious Bobbie. I'd love to live where lemons and oranges grow. I can almost smell these blossoms. There's nothing like it.
