Lemon Tree

Posted October 30th, 2008 in Food 4 Comments »

In Perth people grow lots of trees in their garden.  Lemon, orange, mandarin, avocado, chili, etc…  Gardening is very very popular here.

I get to see many lemon trees around.  In my friends’ houses, in a park and in my neighbor’s yard…   I’ve never seen people actually raising it from a seed though… it must take years and years to grow.

I don’t have lemon tree in my garden, but my neighbor has.  The tree grows lots of fruits and one branch is growing towards my garden, so I sometimes pick them and use for cooking :p  I don’t think the neighbor can eat all…

The lemons I picked last week tasted very sweet:)  Not as sweet as melons or banana, of course, but I could just eat them like fruits!  I think the hot weather made them very sweet 🙂

Last night I used this lemon to make an accompaniment for steak.  The tangy citrus flavor was very refreshing and went well with beef 🙂

Chop up tomato (concace) and avocado.  Zest the lemon.  Add little amount of olive oil and mix them up  gently.  Crack black pepper over the plate and enjoy♪

    Hi Yutsuki 🙂
    I think lemon should be sour :p
    I just had to give it a bite when I cut the lemon… looked so juicy (>x<) Then it was sweet!
    I hope to stay with you and eat bagels everyday!

    eat them like fruits? I don’t believe you. You should make lemonade, you know, like in winter it protects you from colds.

    Hi Mark
    No, really you can eat just like that!
    Or maybe I’m strange ..? :p
    They weren’t sour, rather sweet. Yeah they’ve got lots of vitamins so good for skin too 🙂
