My 10 year old Meyer lemon tree potted in 10 inch pot and doing well, started producing orange fruit instead of yellow fruit. I have pictures to demonstrate but I can't figure out how to attach them.

    Welcome! Pictures can be tricky here. Here's the basic process. Press the gray "edit" word under your question. That will open it up. Press the icon that looks like a mountain, right after the brackets. A window will open that will ask if you want to add a picture from your computer or from a website. If the picture is on your computer, drag, drop or double-click it right there. If your photo is on the web, like a google album, post the web address. Then hit "add picture" and it should pop right in. If it doesn't work, leave a comment and we'll try something else! Don't give up! Commented Mar 25, 2018 at 19:42

Has this tree produced yellow fruit in the past? If not, it may have been mislabeled when purchased. There are two other possibilities:

  1. The rootstock may have overgrown the scion.
  2. The fruit deepens in color as it becomes more mature.

Was previous fruit picked at a less mature stage?
