Will lemon trees grow from store bought lemons bloom?

I have two lemon trees that I grew from seeds I removed from lemons bought at the grocery store. I do not know what king of lemon trees they are and do not know if they will bloom or not. The first lemon is about two years old and the other is about four years old. I know it will take a while for them to bloom, but I want to know if they will bloom coming from store bought lemons. Any input would be very helpful. (Note: Both are in pots if this helps find out if they will bloom)

Citrus tends to bloom after 8 years outdoors.

Thank you. Will they bloom if they are in the pots?

Citrus with ripe fruits are sold all the time in fairly small (3-gallon or less) pots, but they are regularly fertilized and never allowed to get cold overnight. I suppose those sold up here are mainly intended as house plants.

The from-seed should not be an issue as long as the plant is otherwise happy.

A calamondin would bloom at a younger age and be more forgiving of conditions, but the fruit does not appeal to everyone.

Given enough light they can bloom indoors, however Summers outdoors would be more beneficial for fruiting.

Thanks guys! I have them outside all year round and they are brought into the garage if it is going to freeze. I am not sure what kinds of lemons they are.
