You can request
a “Hold Order” for Hardy Perennials and we will ship them
when it’s planting time in your zone. Otherwise, Hardy
Perennials can be kept in a cool or cold spot like an unheated
garage, cool cellar or outbuilding. Cover the pot and soil
with insulating material (burlap, clean rags, newspaper) and
check the soil every 2-3 weeks to make sure it doesn’t dry
out completely. In the spring, plant as soon as the ground
is open and no longer frozen. Dormant plants can endure
freezing temperatures in the spring as long as the plant
remains dormant without any green buds.
Sweet Lemon (Citrus ujukitsu)
Yes, believe it or not, we found this lemon to be incredibly sweet. It ripens to a bright yellow with an interesting pear-shaped form that’s quite large, often bigger than a softball. Thought to be a strain of Tangelo, a cross between a grapefruit and a tangerine, the fruit is amazingly sweet and juicy with a thick rind that peels easily. The plant grows slower than most lemon trees yet when it reaches two or more feet it will flower and fruit with great regularity. Springtime brings a flush of fragrant blooms.
Hardy to Zone 9 and higher for outdoors.
Full sun, grows to 2-3' in container, minimum temperature indoors 50°, blooms intermittently.
