Easily grow bushels of lemons- great for lemonade or adding a sweet flavor to your meals.

The Eureka Lemon is such an easy tree to grow. It is drought tolerant & easily adaptable to many soils and conditions. You don’t need to spray scary chemicals because it isn’t prone to pests and disease.

The citrus blossoms on this tree are both fragrant and beautiful. Enjoy it’s intoxicating fragrance on your patio when you host company.

If you live where winters won’t allow your Eureka lemon to survive outdoors, simply put your potted tree in front of a sunny window during cold seasons.

Then, in late spring, white flowers cover the tree.

These blooms are followed by huge fruit.

The pink lemon trees grow up to 12 feet tall and make a fine small shade tree or accent in your yard. The lemon tree grows best in zones 8-11 when planted in your yard.

However, if you pot it up and place it on your patio, you can grow it anywhere in the US.

Simply plant in a well-drained container with premium potting soil. Before the first frost, bring the pot indoors near a sunny window. Enjoy its beauty and fragrance all winter.

It is easy to keep this beautiful lemon tree to your desired height. Simply snip off the top when it gets too tall.

And it's as easy to enjoy the fruit as it is to grow it. Pick a bundle right off the glimmering branches of your Eureka lemon tree. Pull out that juicer from the back of the cabinet and make some real pink lemonade!

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Eureka Lemon


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Eureka Lemon.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Eureka Lemon gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Eureka Lemon again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I am in growing zone 7, right in between indoors/outdoors planting. I would like a lemon tree for outside so would this tree grow in the outdoors? I live in Missouri in the boot heel 13 miles from the Arkansas border.
David M on Jun 22, 2014
Best Answer: Missouri gets a little too cold for the Eureka Lemon Tree. You would need to bring it in doors during the winter.

Do you need more than one lemon tree for it to bear fruit?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2014
Best Answer: No, one tree is just fine. However, I have had better luck with my citrus trees bearing fruit from the blossoms that occur outdoors, as opposed to the wave of blossoms which occur midwinter inside (I always get two waves of blossoms per year).

I live in zone 8a in Texas. It seldom gets below 32 but we do have the occasional dip into the low 20's or high teens from time to time. It almost never stays that low for very long. Will this lemon tree be ok for outside permanent planting?
ToddJones on Jul 6, 2014
Best Answer: The Eureka Lemon Tree will do well outside in zone 8. Our zoning is very precise. However you can protect your tree in the winter by putting hay,pine straw or mulch down around the base of it to keep the roots warm. You can also cover it with a sheet at night to protect it from frost.
