Here’s Why Meyer Lemons are the Best Selling Patio Citrus Trees:

So Hardy, it Grows Indoors or Out… reportedly withstanding brief temperatures as low as 22 F. If you live in a colder climate, you can easily move it inside for the winter. Your tree will continue to bear fruit and brighten your home. Its vivid yellow/orange fruit against its glossy evergreen foliage will make this your all-time favorite houseplant.

You Get a Lot of Lemons to Eat and Share. These are prolific fruiters, even when young. Order our large-sized trees and you will be picking lemons the very first season. Plus, Meyer Lemons ripen over several months, not all at once, so you have more time to enjoy them.

A Great Tasting Lemon. Meyers are naturally sweeter than standard lemons. My children make healthy, nutritious Meyer Lemonade with just lemons and water… no processed sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Amazing Citrus Blossoms Fill Your Home or Yard with a Fresh, Delightful Scent. The fragrance is almost like a jasmine/citrus blend. It’s one of the best smelling plants I know of. These blooms self-pollinate to produce fruit.

This is a FUN Tree. It’s almost always doing something. Either it’s fruiting or blooming. When friends come over, they will want to see what’s new with your Meyer Lemon… it’s almost like having a pet.

Trouble-Free Citrus Tree. Highly adaptable and forgiving… just give it a little organic fertilizer and water occasionally. Long lived and capable of producing fruit for over 30 years. If you bring it indoors, try to place it within 6 feet of a sunny window.

Our Meyer Lemon trees are grafted on to a sturdy root stock, rather than grown from seed like many other nurseries. This helps our Nurserymen produce a better quality tree that’s hardier, fruits sooner, and has a more attractive form. This process takes a lot of hand work and time, but the difference is dramatic.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

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 Meyer Lemon Tree

Specific Directions for Meyer Lemon Tree

Your Meyer Lemon Tree will love to be planted in an area that receives full sunlight, or at least six hours of sunlight a day. Make sure that the area isn't too windy and the temperatures consistently stay above 50 degrees. If you keep your Meyer Lemon Tree indoors place it by a big window that receives a lot of sunlight.

Meyer Lemons Trees enjoy sandy, well drained, moist soil. Do not over water your tree, once your soil is dry two inches about two inches down it's time to give your tree a deep watering. Give your tree water until you notice water draining from the bottom of its pot.

An organic or citrus fertilizer will make your tree happy. In the early Spring and late fall apply fertilizer to your tree every four to six weeks.

Meyer Lemon Trees bloom twice a year and produce fruit year around. Once the flowers drop, fruit will fill in. Leave your lemons on your tree until then turn a shade of yellow that's close to the color of an egg yolk.

Your Lemons will stay green for many months, and will not ripen until their color changes.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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 Meyer Lemon Tree 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 Meyer Lemon Tree 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.

What size pot should I plant this tree in?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2014
Best Answer: Meyer Lemons "like" being root bound. I repotted the first one (about a year ago) in an 18 " pot, and left the second one in it's container it cam in and I have teeny-tiny lemons in 2 months.

Do you need 2 trees so they pollinate and grow fruit?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2014
Best Answer: Meyers Lemon trees are self pollinating when they are outside, (with some help from the bees) but indoors I pollinate with a tiny artists paintbrush, spreading the pollen from bloom to bloom.

How long should it take before lemons start growing?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: If you water the plant appropriately it should be pretty responsive and do lemons after the first year. The number of lemon will increase over time but expect it to be small at the beginning.

We water the plant every weekend with one watering can and some plants nutrients in the water.

Can meyer lemon trees be grown in a pot outside?
Candace C on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, meyer lemons are pretty easy to grow in a pot and bring inside for the winter. They are very prolific lemon producers (they fruit more if they are close to being root bound). Of all the citrus trees they are also the most likely to survive scale or spider mite infestation. In order to prevent such an infestation, it is best to spray preventively with neem oil solution twice (about a week apart) especially before bringing the tree inside, and also periodically spray with fish emulsion solution which helps with scale and is also a fertilizer. Also, keep the tree free of ants and watch for "honey dew" - sure most visible sign of scale. As long as the tree is free of pests, it is a real pleasure to have around - it is beautiful, fragrant (it blooms inside during winter too), and the lemons are delicious.

why is my plants end of limbs wilting?
donnette d on Jun 8, 2014
Best Answer: If they're turning black that is a sign of over watering. If the leaves are heavy and droopy looking ease up on the amount of water you're giving your tree. If the leaves are curling upwards then your tree needs a little extra water. You may need to fertilize your tree with some citrus fertilizer.

I have three medium green lemons and newly formed lemons from buds. How long does it take lemons to mature and turn yellow?
Johnnie w on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: Depends on where the trees are and the time of the year. The first buds I got was fall, the tree was in my basement and it took about a month. Left the lemons on until I used them and that was several months. Waiting for it to bud again since it is outside now, I think it will be shorter than a month

Why are my lemons turning black? They start to grow green then turn yellow when they are approximately 3/4 inch long. Then they turn black. We live in Tulsa, OK.
Julie A on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer: I got mine in 2012 and it's green but no fruit yet! Here what other people say....It may even be good news: a newly set fruit will often turn yellow or yellowish before dropping off, but under excellent conditions (rare for me in Connecticut), my newly set lemons have on occasion turned very dark--almost to the point they look black, before really starting to grow.

I'm in zone 7 and I may not have a sunny window while keeping the tree indoors. What light will work best for indoor keeping through winter?
Joseph N on Jun 30, 2014
Best Answer: I had mine in a south-facing window. However, due to a spider-mite infestation my tree lost most of its leaves, and it still survived and even produced two lemons. When I was a kid, we used to overwinter a grape fruit tree in our basement, which received very little light. (I live in zone 5, and so it had to be inside a lot longer than what it would for you.) There are lights available that simulate sunlight if you feel that you need to supplement the natural sunlight. My Meyer Lemon bloomed during the shorter days of fall, winter, and early spring. If you get supplemental light you may want to make sure its not on too long.

When should I cut the lemons from the branches?
Martha H on Jun 26, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Martha:
Pick your Lemon when it has turned mostly Yellow, but with a tiny bit of Green still on it, if you don't expect to use it immediately, as it will continue to ripen. It has a delightful smell. Thin skin.
PS I live in upstate New York (cold & grey cloudy Winters) and so I didn't get a lot of Lemons, but it is fun trying. Good luck.

do I need to thin out the flowers on one branch that might have 3 to 4 flowers on in order for my lemon to grow to the picking size?
Heidi C on Jun 28, 2014
Best Answer: If your lemon tree has too many blooms it will produce a lot of smaller lemons instead of full sized lemons. To prevent this you can remove a few of the blooms by hand or you can cut a few branches back. Make the cuts at 45 degree angles facing upward to promote new growth.
