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.

Go to a local nursery and talk to the specialist. I understand there are different types of
fertilizer that can improve the flavors of fruit on fruit trees. Someone who is an expert at the nursery, will know what type of fertilizer to use and have other suggestions to improve the flavor of your fruit.
