I left lemon seeds on an empty (but full of soil pot) and to my pleasant surprised I got a plant, which flowered and now I have two fruits growing. However they look like peppers instead of lemons. How is that possible? And before I'm asked the question I did not plant any peppers ?. Can anyone share light to this mystery, please.
Thank you in advance for your help
Best regards




You may claim to not have planted peppers, but obviously somebody did - unless those hobgoblins are up to no good again. :)

A seed must have found its way into the compost somehow -that's not a lemon!

Definitely peppers, not lemons--or some of the weird citrus hybrids you get when planting open pollinated seeds!
