More about Meyer Lemon Trees:
A favorite of home gardeners and chefs, the Meyer Lemon tree adapts well to growing in containers or growing in the ground in temperate climates. This is the perfect plant to accent your patio – with the bonus of fresh lemons! Enjoy attractive, evergreen foliage and sporadic, fragrant flowering, followed by fresh, floral citrus – ideal for baking and making fantastic cocktails. They are also a staple for homesteaders that preserve an abundance of fruits. This lovely tree may bloom again while fruit is still growing, allowing for multiple harvests!

While they’re moderately acidic, Meyer lemons don’t have the same tang as regular lemons. Instead, they’re much sweeter. Meyer lemons are a cross between a regular lemon (Eureka and Lisbon variety) and a mandarin orange. This thin-shinned fruit is smaller and more round than regular lemons, with smoother, deep yellow skin, and dark yellow pulp.

Pruning helps keep the Meyer Lemon Tree more manageable with a fuller appearance. This is a self-pollinating variety and with regular fertilizing, you can have your first harvest within a couple of years! We recommend a high nitrogen fertilizer, such as one designed for citrus trees, to be applied during the spring and summer months.

Whether grown in a container or planted in the ground, this citrus plant requires at least six hours of sunlight. In warmer climates, morning sun and afternoon shade are best for growing Meyer lemons. The Meyer Lemon tree is heat tolerant, but not cold-hardy, so if you live outside of the recommended growing zones, just be sure to treat it as a houseplant before freezing temperatures arrive.
