My 1,5 year old citrus tree

I'm new here so I will introduce myself first. My name is Sjoerd and I live in the Netherlands. Not the perfect climate for citrus plants, but indoors it seems to work. I grew this little tree from a seed that I collected from a lemon bought from the supermarket. It seems to do quite well!

Is it possible to tell from the way the plant looks which variety it is? There aren't many thorns and the leaves definitively smell like lemon (like a cleaning product!). Here is a better look at the leaves:

I took the plant out last summer. Do you think it would be a good idea to do so again this summer? It seemed to do pretty well outside since we have a garden facing south, so it receives a lot of sun. Though it seems to do well indoors too. Any thoughts?

Have a nice day!
