How long does it take for a lemon tree to ripen?

They gradually mature and gain sweetness; in fact, the fruit may take as long as nine months to ripen. Once the fruit is mature, it can be left on the tree for a few weeks, but it does not ripen more. So first off, the lemons may not be turning yellow because they have not been ripening on the tree long enough.
