Improved Meyer Lemon trees are a fun and rewarding addition to your patio or deck. With the decorative planter option this plant we think you and your family and friends will enjoy watching this guy grow and produce fruit. Once established, Meyer Lemon trees are prolific producers and excess fruit can be self stored on the tree.
This Improved Meyer Lemon is great for Texas as it is more cold tolerant then most lemon species. It will need to be covered if temperatures get below 26 Fahrenheit. It also is the most shade tolerant of lemon trees. The Meyer Lemon is actually a cross between a lemon and orange.
The Meyer lemon is the preferred lemon of most gourmet chiefs as it is little sweeter than other lemons and less acidic. The Meyer variety is not typically found in grocery stores as its skin is thinner and tenderer and doesn't hold up as well to abuse.
Care: Lemon Trees are easy to care for. When watering, water often until the plant gets established and then let it dry down between watering. Like all citrus plants, Lemons love full sun and will produce the best when getting full sun.
Approximate size: 24"w x 4' - 5'h (will grow to larger, can be pruned to accommodate special size constraints.)
