Hi! @ eight years ago, we bought a "Mickey's Mini Orange Tree" at Disney World. Started in a pot @ 9" tall, grown inside until about a year ago and now thrives in our yard.
Question: Unlike those we''ve seen at Home Depot and Lowe's, it has thorns. Is this unique or is it normal? PS It has never flowered nor has it had any signs of fruit.
As always, many thanks.

I, personally, planted a lemon tree many years ago....brought it outside in the warmer months,
then back inside for the winter....and let me tell you....you almost had to don chain mail in order to move it!! The thorns were strong and painful....we learned to wear proper attire when moving it....so yes....MOST, have thorns. Mine took 10 years to finally start blooming...then a hail storm knocked them all off!!!!
