Lemon tree

i purchased a potted lemon tree a couple of months ago and over the past few weeks it has started to put out new growth, and I’m wondering if I should be “pinching” these out ???
I have read a lot about this process but not really sure if to or not

    It depends on how much you want your lemon to grow, and do you want fruit.
    Citrus tend to grow in this haphazard way,  strong shoots but not all over. If you want fruit leave it until you know what limbs are fruiting this year. Then take off what is too long.🙂
