Why do I have huge thorns on my lemon tree?

Every time I prune my lemon tree I get these huge thorns growing on the young branches. Is this normal?

Hi Larry,

yes particularly if it is a eureka variety. just make sure that none of these branches are coming from below the graft as the rootstock variety is often thorny too.
