The elusive Lemon Tree is won from a Mystery Box – you can’t buy it with either cash or donuts. It gives you a cash bonus every six hours when you click on a basket of lemons.

Until October 2012, if you saw one in a friends’ town you could steal it from them and plant it in your Springfield. Then, after 24 hours any of your friends could steal it from you!

As of 15 October 2012, however, the Lemon Tree was disabled and couldn’t be stolen. EA describes this as a glitch and say that they hope to get this ability restored in the future, although they also say that they can’t estimate when that may be.

I kind of hope they don’t fix this particular glitch – I like my Lemon Tree. It took months to get, and I would hate anyone to steal it!
