Default Lemons - don't last on the tree forever. :-(

We have had a couple of lemons very slowly growing and ripening for about
2 years now.
I picked one before Xmas and later sliced and froze it.
I expected the one still on the tree to last better, but it started to go
brown, and I've only just noticed.

Anyway, best to pick your lemons whilst you can. It seemed such a rare
crop I couldn't justify picking it for a non-special occasion. Now most of
it is in the bin and the rest in the freezer for G&T garnish.

Cheers
