How do I know when my lemons are ripe and ready to pick?
Im up in New York.
Earlier in the summer I purchased 2 lemon trees ( which are potted and are now inside). They had small green, unripe lemons when I purchased it. Now, the lemons are full lemon sized, Id say %85 of the lemon is yellow, but the underside or less exposed side of the lemon is still green ( less green than when it was unripe, but green none the less). It has been this way for about 2 weeks, with little or no changes. If i had dozens of lemons, I'd just pick one and test it out, but I only have a few , so i dont want to pick it until I know its ready to be picked .
Any advice/ suggestions ?
