      Tell me about planting fruit trees.

      Hi everyone. I have a ridiculous question which my best friend, google, didnt have the answer for.
      I want to plant lemon seeds, what will happen if I germinate and plant multiple seeds together?

      Will they start growing into each other until one of them starves the rest ? or does it all grow into 1 big plant mess?


      thanks
      have a good day!

      I'm no expert, but I do like to grow things, so this is what I do. You can germinate the seeds together, but after a little while you should separate them. I've never tried NOT separating them, but what I would imagine would happen is either one won't survive, or they will both just be weak.

      PS. I planted apple seeds from an apple I ate about 10 years ago. Now I have a "tree" taller than me! It doesn't produce because it's either too young or sterile because it was from a store bought apple.

      I don't know anything about lemon trees, but in general it isn't a good idea. Normally when you plant stuff together they are both really small and don't grow well, and one or both might even die. One of them will probably come out ahead in the end though, and the rest will stay really small or just die.

      I have actually seen two trees grow into each other before though. They always remained kind of separated though even though it was one tree. So when it got bigger it actually split in half on one windy day. Since it was actually two trees though, it survived. I believe they were saplings when first planted together, not seeds. So I don't think that would happen in your case.

      With herbaceous plants, it' fairly common to sow multiple seeds in a hole and then thin them down to one fairly early. Ideally, this is done before they send a lot of roots out. So before the first set of true leaves appears even. However they can be separated for a while after that. It will depend on the species.

      The vast majority of citrus trees are grown from clones and not from seed so you most likely won't get the exact kind of fruit that you took the seeds from.

      If you can get access to a living tree, then you can take a clone from that.

      A flower will, if fertilized, produce an unripe fruit that will turn into a ripe fruit. The seeds will normally be mature at that point. Some will require processing if they're used to being eaten by vertebrates. It varies from species to species. I don't know about lemons off hand.

      A clone will usually be a cutting of young vegetative growth. You can take those with rooting powder for most trees. Check first but I'm pretty sure that that's a good way to grow citrus so you can look at that.

      I know of at least one heirloom variety that can be grown from seeds. I don't know much about the commercial ones though.

      So it might work.

      Sometimes people graft trees together, making it so that some branches grow different fruits than others.
