Bush Lemons Ripen in Midwinter

This ancient "bush lemon" provides a ridiculous amount of fruit each winter.

It was planted here in the late nineteenth century along with many other citrus trees and is still fruiting

The bush lemon, part of The Old Orchard,  is not as acidic as other lemons and makes a delicious cordial or fresh vitamin C drink.  To see more about citrus varieties planted at The Drip click here.
