    Only if it is a lemon tree seed.
    You can also graft a lemon cutting onto "stock" root of another lemon,orange any of the citrus family.

    Get a good seed raising mix put 5 seeds in each pot and keep damp for few days then water every 3 days and keep you fingers crossed.


    You may not get as good a fruit from seedlings as the original fruit was. No idea why but this a common result of seeds.


    It is for this reason most fruit trees are grafted.

    Certainly, you can!  Like anything else worth having, give it the care and attention it needs to thrive. 

    well,you need to find the seeds,right
