I wanted an indoor citrus, particularly Meyer Lemon. I also have a Bearss Lime and will graft a branch to this to create a 2-in-1 potted Meyer-Bearss.

Love to cook with Meyer lemons
Bob on Apr 21, 2018
I've always wanted a lemon tree and if you've ever tried them, you'd know that Meyer lemons are simply the best! I ordered a Key Lime tree last year from Stark bros and have been really pleased with it so I figured I'd give the Meyer lemon a try.
Valerie D on Feb 27, 2018
It's a nice gift package! Meyer's lemon blossoms are wonderful inside the house over winter and the lemons are very nice. Great item and great price!
Michelle C on May 9, 2017
These are the best lemons ever & I use lemons every day in my drinking water, cooking & they give the most & best tasting juice of all.

I want to grow this dwarf potted mayer lemon indoors, I live in zone 5, will it grow inside my house??
luciana on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in Zone 5 (Northern Illinois) and grow mine indoors.It's produced well for me so far since
Is the tree self pollinating? Sorry if this is listed somewhere, I don't see it. What about the other indoor trees?
Annie on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Most all of our trees can be grown indoors (something that is a surprise to many), but ir you're specifically referring to these tropical trees - Calamondin Orange, Tangerine, Meyer Lemon, Key Lime, Dwarf Cavendish Banana - they are all self-pollinating.
My tree is currently in a 10'' pot. At what point should it be transferred to a bigger pot?
Elie L on May 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Once its roots have filled the current pot. Check the root system after a couple of years to see if the plant has become rootbound. If so, then it's time to repot. The ideal time to check and repot is when the tree is not blooming or holding fruit so that it doesn't drop the flowers or the fruit in response to its roots being disturbed.
does it come with some directions?
camille D on Jan 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. It will have no leaves on it, at least mine had none. Then after potting you have to be very patient and give it a few months and then the leaves come out all of a sudden. The first 1-2 years you have to pull off every single flower. I mean it. Do not allow any fruit to develop until year 3. This will cause it to grow bushy and strong. From that point on your tree will be magnificent. Also, buy the citrus fertilizer. That's crucial for plant health. I forgot to use the fertilizer for 6 months and the leaves turned yellow and dropped off until i started fertilizing it again. Now you know the basics. Good luck!
What type of soil should lemon tree be planted in?
Kelly M on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used a typical organic potting soil from Lowes or home depot. To help drainage, I lined the bottom of the pot with golf ball sized rocks found in the backyard, and I mixed a few scoops of sand into the soil.
I'm no expert, but it seems to be working well. It's healthy and blooming, even in a New England winter.
Will they still produce without fertilizer?
Amanda J on May 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea. My tree is still too young to produce, but I do fertilize.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

How long will it be before thus produces lemons?
Donna M on Jan 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Mine arrived half dead. Took about a full season for it to come back to life. Hoping to get lemons this coming season. I reached out to stark bros about it but never heard back. I've purchased from them before and always been happy, but this was the first issue I ran into and they really dropped the ball.
The leaves on my Meyer Lemon are turning yellow and falling off. What is going on?
Sheila L on May 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Happens to my plant every winter when I bring it inside. Plant seems dead but leaves come back in spring after plant is outside for about 6 weeks.
Does this tree care me in a 4" pot? It says 6-12" plant.
Cindy H on Mar 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The pot is 4"; the height of the tree is between 6-12". The kit comes with a 10" pot so you can transplant your new tree to a bigger "home."
Can you plant a meyer lemon tree outside in West Texas?
Jean M on May 6, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This lemon can grow outside permanently in zones 8-11.
Is this grafted or grown from seed?
Honeywest on May 4, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Hi Debi - These are grown from a rooted cutting.
How long do these take to start bearing fruit from this size?
Jimmy on Apr 26, 2021
BEST ANSWER: It can take them 1-2 years before they are old enough to bear fruit.

Can this tree and all other trees ship to Arizona?
Minerva M on Sep 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately this happens to be a product that has state or county agricultural regulations, which prohibit shipment. Sometimes there are local/regional quarantines put in place to halt the spread of certain plant diseases, which does not happen often. While these regulations may change in the near future, we apologize that we cannot ship this item to you at the present time. Other items can be shipped to AZ. If you type your zip code into the box in the "Zone Compatability" section above, a checkmark will appear if the product on this page will grow well in your location.
when I receive my new plant will I have to repot it immediately?
Joe T on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You should repot the tree in the 4" pot into the 10" within a week at most. Be sure you keep it watered in the meantime.
I have three lemon trees started from seed. they are all in 10 inch pot should I separate them. the leaves are beginning to fall off the smaller of the three?
Bertha T on Apr 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it's best to give individual trees their own space/containers. The leaves are likely dropping due to stress ??? this is common with citrus. The leaves will grow back when conditions improve as long as the tree is otherwise healthy (example: good, strong roots).
Is their a special nutrient or additive needed for the Meyer lemon tree?
Angela H on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I haven't used any fertilizer or soil additive to my trees. I do recommend buying a nitrogen additive and general additive for your trees to replenish nutrients. But if you don't do this your trees will still do fine.

Very happy...
My tree even survived a Massachusetts winter! It dropped most of it's leaves, but once the season started to change it pushed out a whole new bunch of leaves!

Our lemon tree was received in good condition. Unfortunately when it was left out during an unusually cold night it got frozen and lost all its leaves. After about a month it produced new buds and starter to regrow. It is now doing well, is developing a good shape, and we are pleased with it. It has even begun to flower again. We found the tree will survive temperatures in the mid twenties and above, but not lower.

Awesome indoor tree
I love this tree. It's still petty small but it bloomed soon after receiving it and grew a huge lemon. I put it outside last summer and will do the same this summer. It has been blooming quite a bit this spring too!

So Far So Good
It grew quickly and was a prolific bloomer the first season. Most of the baby lemons fell off before reaching pencil eraser size. However 2 survived and produced great lemons. Now awaiting the second season to see if it blooms and produces again. Easy to grow and care for. Am not too keen on the thorns it produces however. A great conversation plant as well.

Nice little tree
Blossoms frequently and sets fruit (although none have ripened yet). Seems to tolerate the season change well and adapted to being moved inside for the winter.

I am Happy!
Shortly after I received this plant in April, 2017, I planted it in a five gallon fabric grow pot and placed it outdoors in direct sunlight. With my homemade potting plant mix, supplemented with a dose of ammonium sulfate and worm castings tea, it is thriving. Great job Stark Bros. The rest is up to me.

One plant was excellent one was not
I ordered two Meyer lemon plants. One was excellent and has been flowering nonstop, the other lost all it's leaves. I am slowly trying to nurse it back to health. Both plants were side by side in a south facing window. I was surprised with how often the plants needed watering. They are heavy feeders.

Touch and Go
I've had some problems with the plant- it has dropped a lot of leaves and though I have followed all of the instructions and advice offered by Stark brothers I am concerned the plant will not recover.
