I have written much about my lemon tree. It is my joy. Whenever I feel sad or upset I go to it, look at it and touch it. Invariably I feel better.
Well, right next to it is another smaller tree. Last year it put out a few flowers, but we had seen no fruit. For a while we thought that it too was a lemon, then I realized that the brunches had thorns, so we decided that it might be grapefruit. This would have been nice. We love grapefruits.
The mystery of the tree was solved by my MIL! And how! She found that a tree had a fruit on it after all!
It is an Etrog (Citron)! And a huge one! I can not imagine how we missed it! There are quite a few flowers on the tree this year. I hope we will get a few more Etrogs in this coming year!
