I bought a Jongerling Citrus Lemon plant earlier this year. It has produced around 10 lemons which have only just started to turn yellow. On the label of the plant there is a knife and fork symbol which has been crossed out, does this mean that these lemons are not edible?

Kind regards




Hi, welcome to GoY, these are sprayed with chemicals in order to keep the plants looking good until they're sold, so don't eat the lemons that were on the plant when you bought it, any fruits that grow in future, are perfectly safe to eat, Derek.
