Answer: pluck a lemon

Dear Massimo,

in general, lemon plants tend not to have a complete vegetative rest period, so when you remove it and move it you will certainly have to give up flowers and fruit that are not yet ripe; considering this the best time to move it is autumn or late spring, in any case not in a period in which the plant has many flowers.

Remember to start the removal by pruning the plant well, removing about a third of the foliage; then proceed by removing a large piece of earth from the ground, in order to transfer most of the root system still intact. Your lemon should be small in size, so I don't think it will suffer much.
