Meyer Lemon (Citrus limon)
An heirloom dwarf lemon with delicious golden-yellow fruit, Meyer Lemon makes a fine potted plant and it’s the hardiest lemon for cool temperatures. The fruit is more flavorful than store-bought lemons and is prized by chefs. It bears heavily at a young age, flowering and fruiting year-round. Brought into the U.S. at the turn of the century from China, it is thought to be a hybrid between a lemon and an orange.
Hardiness Zone 9, 10
Bloom Season Intermittent
Sun Requirement Full Sun
Grows to 1-3'

Container Grown Citrus

Keep the root systems healthy and active. A period of dryness helps stimulate flowers and fruiting. Mimic Florida’s climate- wet summers and dry fall/winters.

Most important for potted citrus:

• Full sun and high light. The more the better.
• For faster growth and an active root system,
   grow them warm.

• Do not over pot.
• Grow in clay pots for optimum root health.
• Fertilize spring through fall. 
• High light aids in flowering and fruiting.
• Fertilize in growing season 1-2 times a month.
• Water when the soil is visually dry or at first signs of wilt.

  1. Third Lemon Tree Review by Pamela
    How do you rate this product?

    I bought this lemon after my first died from scale and my second was not suited to this climate. To say this lemon is doing wonderful is an understatement. When it arrived it was in great condition and ready to plant. After about 2 months it got white flies which thankfully I caught them early and killed them, since then this lemon tree has grown and is still growing, on all branches with beautiful dark leaves and strong stems. I would recommend to anyone to get this lemon tree for its ease of growing. (Posted on 9/18/2016)

  2. Overall Resilient Review by Greg
    How do you rate this product?

    Bought this plant in Spring 2015, it was doing well; but growing somewhat slow at first. During the winter it lost all it leaves. I thought this was due to a root rot, but recently I closely inspected the plant and found spider mites. I have been spraying the plant with cold water and since then there are many new leaf shoots throughout the plant. (Posted on 4/10/2016)
