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.

Your Orange tree was not married to another tree, so will get fruit about 7 years from now and
the thorns are part of your tree, just like hair is part of us, go to lowe's and get some Ctrus-tone citrus& avocado food, springle 1/4 cup aoround the trunk every 3 month. water once or 2 time a week if no rain in the forcast.good luck.
