Tell us,  once and for all.  I can't sleep at night thinking about this !

It looks like a class of lemon , but it couldn't be that obvious, could it?

So, you've been following this too! No I won't put you out of your misery yet . That's the point. If it was too easy it wouldn't be much fun! Though I must admit that either Oron be barred from the bulbs or I make that subject more difficult!
Anyway it's much smaller than a lemon and the genus is large in number. OK?
