Quick question, as per title. Our lemon tree is absolutely covered in lemons and most are almost fully yellow, but if I pick them now, will they finish ripening???
We live on Mid North Coast NSW and are still getting quite sunny/ warm days, but my lemon tree is not getting much of that. I don't know if they'll continue to ripen on the tree, and thought if they would do so off the tree, then I will pick them!

hi, I picked some lemons off my tree a couple of weeks ago. They were yellow but very hard on the tree - over the following week they softened up. Maybe you should pick a few like i did to see what happens over the next week!!!

Thanks! I picked some about a week ago, which are yellow but can't remember if they were like that when I picked them! I will just give it a go!
