I just bought a bottle of Simply lemon myself tonight... Think I'll go and pour myself a tall one..Guess I needed my lemon fix once again... Sure love the fresh stuff though...You're lucky to have them for the taking.

Funny you mentioned key lime pie.....
I was just telling mom I'm going to buy a key lime pie for Christmas dessert. It's been a while since I've had one.
Which one of those listed did you make?

They are so easy to make. I use the Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Pie recipe, but put non-fat sweetened condensed--a little less fat. I buy the graham cracker pie crust in the baking section. The hardest part is letting it chill until it ready to eat. I'd recommend making it a day ahead of time. I also purchase a can of low fat whipping cream to top it. It is a bit tart so the whipping cream cuts the tartness.

I got my daughter to buy me a Meyer's Lemon from Edible Landscape. But, it is still very small. I probably won't see Lemons for a few years.

I bought one of those lemon trees too! From logees....They are suppose to be so sweet you could eat them right from the tree.
Mines about2 feet tall. Maybe I'll give the lime pie a try BEFORE Christmas once the apple peach pie dissapears...
Which ONE did you try?Tthere's about 7 various lime pies listed ...

Look in the dessert section for the Key Lime Pie recipe. It is very easy. The hardest part is waiting for it set in the frig.

Runmede,

My mouth is literally watering after reading some of the recipes. Funny thing is, just today, I spotted a single serving pie in the freezer section and, after spotting the key lime one, I decided to buy one. It was pretty good!

I used to love Red Lobster's key lime pie, but I rarely have room for dessert any more... and rarely go out to eat any more either.

Thank you for the link to the recipes!

You've got me wanting to grow one! (hmm... do they require cross-pollination? Would I need more than one?)

I am starting to think about growing house plants such as banana, clementines, and the lemon you describe! I could put them in the green house over the summer.

I found a seed or two in my clementines last year, so I planted them. They are about an inch or two tall. ...I think it will be a LONG time before they'll be producing flowers/fruit--assuming they ever do.

The dwarf citrus are self fertile however if you grow them inside you will need to pollinate it yourself (No insects)
Take a Q tip and swab from blossom to blossom when you see loose pollen and sticky stigmas.

I got the little Meyers Lemon tree in the summer. I left it outside until it got too cold. It is also a host plant for Giant Swallowtails.

I figured I'd have to pollinate it myself...hmmm...or take it outside in the summer time.

Anyway, thanks for the info on them being self fertile.
