New Meyer Lemon - 5 trees or just 1 too deep?

I was at HD yesterday, and they had these "Deco Citrus" pots on sale for $13 - they had a small selection of Improved meyer lemon and key limes. I couldn't resist at that price, so I took home the one that appeared to be the healthiest. The biggest issue is that they all had multiple trunks.... So, did they root 5 cuttings in one pot? Or is this 1 tree that's just planted WAY too deep in the container? If it is multiple plants, is it worth trying to separate them, or should I just choose the healthiest looking one and clip the rest at the soil line? Thanks in advance for any help and pointers. This is my first citrus.
