My lemon tree is still little, and is in a 12 inch pot--about a gallon size, I think. I will check it before I put it outside to see if it has outgrown its home.

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

There is probably way worse than dye added! The skin is soooo tough. I've always wondered if they are coated in wax too?? Probably don't want to know:-)

Do you realize that most of the citrus that gets shipped north is dyed? The fruit is picked before it is ripe so it won't spoil on the way. The dye is only allowed on the skins of citrus. It's a carcinogen. Citrus Red 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yikes, I used lime zest in my rice tonight.
