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!

Not much luck with the Meyer Lemon, but the Eureka is doing fairly well. It is blooming and has some small lemons on it. I hope it continues to do well!

Lemon Tree
My lemon tree arrived in excellent condition. I potted it up according to directions. It's now 6-8 inches taller and has a tiny lemon forming. It has been in the sun on my deck since it arrived, but I will have to bring it in during the winter. Love this tree.

Beautiful tree
I purchased this tree early in the growing season. My fruit turned brown and dropped. I was told by customer service it was due to age and to prune the fruit off. The leaves also looked dead. I pruned off the fruit and leaves and now the tree is beautiful and growing new leaves fast. Hopefully next year I will get lemons that last.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Eureka Lemon Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Emerald Green Thuja.

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 Emerald Green Thuja 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 Emerald Green Thuja again after the transplant is complete.

i have one of these. I brought it indoors in October. IT bloomed and produced small lemon buds. They have fallen off and I am also losing some leaves. Is that normal, since it is now indoors?
Ron H on Dec 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It could be a little stressed out from the move indoors, which is perfectly normal. It should bounce back.
What do you mean pink lemon tree? Is this Eureka Lemon Tree yellow or pink?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2014
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.
How soon will this tree bear fruit? If I buy one now in the fall, can I expect to see it blossoming in the late spring?
G K on Nov 8, 2014
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).
What is the best lemon tree for containers and indoors for winter and south west facing deck in spring/summer?
Emmett M on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey! My Meyer lemon is doing really well, inside (in the winter)and out (in the spring through fall). Especially being in New Jersey during the winter and summer facing the West (somewhat south)- I have a balcony and it lives in the pot. Hope this helps!
I entered purchase for 3 trees, did it go through? I have never done this before
Andys on Oct 23, 2015

Are the roots invasive or can I plant right next to the house?
Tara C on May 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would plant it at least 4-5 ft from your house.
I'm interested in a dwarf, seedless lemon tree for San Diego CA is this the right choice?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Eureka is a seedless lemon and only reaches approx 8-12 ft and would grow nicely in your area.
How big will a Eureka Lemon tree get and is it a juicy lemon?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2014

Do you have Organic fruit trees in dwarf sizes?
pammie on Jul 16, 2014

Will 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.

Trimming & Pruning

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.
