Giant Lemons

Looking out in the yard this morning, I noticed four large yellow figures lying on the ground. At first, I thought the neighbor boys had thrown some Nerf footballs over our fence. But on closer inspection, I found them to be lemons that had fallen off the same neighbor's tree. The Diet Dr. Pepper can was included for scale comparison.

Occasionally, our lime tree will yield similar sized fruit.

Wow! Those are fabulous. Are they edible? I should get you to send me one. We can't grow citrus outside overwinter here, but I do have a few little calamondins on two tiny trees I have indoors.

Bad things happen when I drink in a party setting. Or GOOD things, depending on who you are. :-)

I'd be happy to send you one, but Lucas has since used them to play baseball. Sorry.
