The Eureka Lemon Tree is the most popular among homeowners who grow their own citrus fruit.

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!

Reserve your completely unique and fascinating lemon tree today… because this won’t stay in stock very long.

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.

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.

Love it!
First of all let me say that it was shipped in excellent condition. The packaging was ideal and the tree arrived healthy and blooming. Second, this tree is prettier than it is pictured. It has thrived all summer while still in the pot it was shipped in. I'll be planting it in the ground this fall and hope that it makes the transition easily.

I am very pleased with the tree and with Fast Growing Trees!

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.

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.

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).

How big will a Eureka Lemon tree get and is it a juicy lemon?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2014
Best Answer: The Eureka Lemon tree when fully grown can reach 8-12 ft if you never trim it. Eureka lemons grown in container usually reach up to 6-7 ft. (unless trimmed). And the Eureka lemon is renowned to be a sharp tasting, juicy fruit

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
