Pee power: Why this lemon is a wee bit bigger

WHEN life gave Nancy Janson lemons, one grew to an unusually large size.

Nancy and Gavin Janson were shocked at the size of a lemon which grew on their tree recently.

The Boyne Island couple who have had their tree for six years compared the size of one lemon which fell from the tree to a rockmelon.

"This is the biggest one we've had so far," Nancy said.

They would usually use lemons for cooking or drinking, and they give plenty away.

"If you've got a recipe and it says one lemon, I don't think you'd use this, it's more like five in one!" she said.

"It's too big to cut in half and be juiced, it'll have to be quartered. It's hard to figure out what we'll use it for."

The lisbon lemon tree is maintained by trimming and fertilisers.

"You've got a shed there. What goes in the shed, is men, and what do they do in the shed?" Nancy asked.

"They drink! And where do they go? Under the lemon tree," she laughed.

The tree was given to Gavin as a Christmas present from their daughter Bindi.

Nancy said the lemons grow year round. They also have a mango and mandarin tree.
