We Prune Your Tree Throughout Its Life… NOT just when we ship it!

So instead of a tree that resembles a fishing pole, you get one that has well developed branches and is hefty enough to start supporting fruit production.

The heights advertised are generally after we prune your tree one last time, unless otherwise noted. So the height you pay for is what you receive.

Plus we don’t include the pot or root length in our measurements. This can give you an extra 1-2 ft. in height.

Our larger trees can be one to three years older than our smaller ones and should give you fruit the first season.

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.

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.

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.

I Bought the 3-4 ft tree. I received a 3 ft tree healthy, shipped in its own pot. After 2 weeks 3 leaves turned a yellow color. I read that was a vitamin deficiency. bought some citrus fertilizer. It is now very green. In 2 months it has 16 new branches started from the original 6 branches it came with. Also has 4 flower clusters that smell intoxicating. Love this very cool little tree

I am 33 years old and buy quite a bit online but have never submitted a review for anything. Since I was so pleasantly surprised with this purchase I thought I should give it a go. We ordered the tree on Friday and it was here on Tuesday. It was almost 3 feet tall with live blooms and 5 ""baby"" lemons! I have ordered many fruit and other plants online that have all come as small sticks. This was a huge surprise. As a note, they ad is correct. The smell of the flowers is amazing. We are thinking about a second Meyer Lemon Tree and have revisited the site today to make plans for our next purchase.

The tree seems to be holding up fairly well. I have and am following the instruction I received with the plant. It is in a large clay vase as shown in your picture. As of yet there are no blooms but I am waiting to see if things pick up as spring approaches.

I just received my tree about 3 days ago, and everything seems to be going fine. I had ordered the 4-5ft tree, and it measures in probably closer to 4 feet. It looks healthy, and while not as full as in the pictures, I had expected as much. It was packaged well, and only one small branch had broke during shipment. I did have to wait a long time to receive it- I had ordered my tree back in January and I just received it late last week (Mid-May)- but that was understandable as I'm sure Michigan winters are much too cold to risk shipping a citrus tree. I'm looking forward to transplanting and growing my meyer lemon tree in a container on my patio in the summer and in front of a large picture window in the winter! Based on this purchase, I would order more from fast growing trees

Wow! I mean WOW! This tree is AMAZING. I hate to use shouty capitals, but this tree WARRANTS it! From the moment I removed it from the packaging my senses have been overwhelmed. Let me break it down by each sense. Sight: This tree is very pleasing to the eye. It has clearly been cared for well up until now by the tree geniuses at Fast-Growing-Trees.com because it's symmetry is gorgeous. Smell: The aroma wafting from this tree transports me to the island of Cyprus where I used to spend summers with my grandmother. I can't wait until my kitchen smells like lemon cakes...I love lemon cakes, just call me Sansa Stark!! Feel: The lemons are so smooth. I like to gently caress them with a lover's touch. The tree really likes that. It has increased it's lemon production by 50% since I began this practice. Taste: I like to squeeze the lemon juice directly into my mouth and swish it around like a fine wine, testing acidity levels and for trace minerals from the 100% organic worm castings I have been growing the tree in. Sound: I am almost certain I can hear this tree singing to me throughout the day. It is so happy and yellow that it's soul sings out to mine in joyous rapture. If I had to compare my tree to say, a Hollywood actor, I would have to say that my tree is Chris Hemsworth because it is strong and tall and sexy. I can't imagine any tree being better than this one. Why would anyone ever decide to buy, say, a ficus, when this tree is available. I am certainly going to purchase another one so that this tree will not be lonely when I am gone to work during the day.

Too soon to tell
I ordered a 3-4 ft blood orange tree and a 3-4 ft Meyer lemon tree. Both arrived quickly, well packaged, and in good health. Because I live in MI, I planted them in pots. They spent the summer on my deck, and were recently moved indoors as the temperatures dropped. I've had them about 4 months now, and while they look fairly healthy, they haven't shown very many signs of growth yet. Slightly disappointing but perhaps to be expected. The orange tree came nicely shaped; the lemon tree, not so much. I'm hoping to be able to make it look better once it starts growing more. The orange tree hasn't bloomed (not showing any signs it wants to either). The lemon tree just recently put out flowers all over. I have yet to fertilize them. Maybe it'll give them a boost when I do. I'm hopeful they'll do well this winter. I don't expect a bumper crop on trees that small/young, but a handful of homegrown citrus would be super nice! Time will tell :)

My sister and I purchased a Meyer Lemon for my mom's birthday in March of 2013. My parents live in Arkansas and are both very good gardeners. The tree arrived in great condition. In fact, it was quite a bit larger than we expected, though perhaps a bit spidery (one main stalk with all the branches near the top). My parents repotted the tree in a larger pot with well draining soil (they may have trimmed the roots a bit - I'm not sure). The well draining soil seems to be important since citrus trees do not like wet roots. The tree thrived in their south facing sun room, flowered and made the whole house smell fresh and citrusy. About 2/3 of the flowers fruited, but all but about 17 fruits fell (which I think is expected). In the summer, they placed the tree outside in a sunny spot and watered it about every other day (it is very hot there). All the fruits continued to grow and the tree itself filled out (produced new branches, grew in height and produced many new leaves) and no longer seems spidery. A couple fruit were pulled off by over zealous guests who were admiring the tree - but 15 remain and are starting to ripen on the tree now.My parents are very happy with the tree and my sister and I are very please that we got it for them. (Seems like a perfect and entertaining gift that keeps on giving!

I've had my Meyer Lemon Tree for about a month. I'm in Zone 7 so growing in a pot. Boy is this a happy plant! Arrived in great condition. I planted it and put it in the sunshine indoors. Am now able to put it outside for the remainder of Spring and Summer. It is already covered in white blooms and/or buds and growing new leaves everywhere. You can see something new on it every single day. Great, beautiful,, healthy tree. You can almost see it dance it's so happy

Eating Lemons!
I got my tree the last week of March 2014 and kept it in the house until almost the end of May. I live in Ohio so the weather is iffy at best. By the end of June I had really small dime size lemons starting, by end of August they were the size of one and a half golf balls. In October they started to turn yellow! I used one yesterday in my water and it was wonderful! Unique taste almost a hybrid between a lime and a lemon, but delicious! Have about 15 lemons on my tree and it is only the first year!

Love the Meyer Lemon Tree and Great Customer Service
My 2 - 3 year old tree arrived about a month ago on one of the coldest days of the year (so far). Within a few days many of the leaves curled, turned yellow, and fell off. I panicked and must have called Customer Service four times. They were very knowledgeable and reassuring, told me all about sun exposure, trimming off dead leaves, fertilizing, etc. I've now had the tree for a month and it's flourishing; new leaves and shoots all over and they literally appear overnight. Very happy with the tree and this company! Would do business again.

Great Tree
Bought two Meyer lemon trees in the summer of 2014. They came well packed with two baby lemons. Those ended up falling off as did some leaves. I left them in their pots for a week and then transplanted them into much larger pots. They have done great. They were covered in blooms and I got several lemons. I would highly recommend these trees.

I bought this tree in the winter so it needed to stay indoors for months before it warmed up enough in Virginia to leave it outside free of the fear of freeze. When I received the tree (I bought the largest one available, i think 5 to 6 foot) it was already blooming so I as able to watch the full process of the blooming and to see which blooms survived into little lemons. I am OBSESSED with my tree, its truly amazing to watch all of the stages its going through. I lost a considerable amount of leaves from it being indoors which I was very worried about but once it was warm enough to leave outside, what I thought was a healthy tree is now flourishing into a even healthier happier tree than I thought possible. I wish I could upload pictures to show how amazing the growth is of my tree. When I received it, it was very healthy and blooming and now, about 5 months later living outside - its is FULL bloom again and regrowing all the leaves it lost, plus some. I can imagine it will be a even fuller more sturdy tree than it was when I got it - unbelievable! I know the tree was expensive but very much worth the cost. I recommend that you follow the sites suggestion and get the organic fertilizer. I bought a hybrid lemon/key lime tree from this site and used a regular citrus tree fertilizer and killed it the hybrid, but the lemon survived, as it turns out, fast-growing-trees.com knows what they are talking about, imagine that. Needless to say I was very upset with myself about not following directions but my lemon tree lived through it and is more than thriving. Fantastic tree and very much worth the cost.

Unfortunately my tree arrived in poor shape, with mostly curled and torn leaves. I'm sure this is in part due to the shock of being planted, but my tree lost all of its lemons. It also came infected with mildew, which I'm still battling to control. I'm very disappointed but will keep endeavoring to make this plant work through the summer

Love my tree
When I received the tree, I pulled it out of the box, bad idea, lost lots of leave. Have now had it a couple of months, still in same pot. It has grown all the leaves back plus new growth and is now covered in heavenly scented blossoms. Hoping for fruit! May bring inside soon just incase we get an early freeze.
Hoping the wonderful blossom scent will beat out the less than wonderful cat box 'scent'. Living in zone 9 but expecting some Polar Vortex drift.

I ordered my 3-4 year old Meyer Lemon in January and it arrived well packaged and covered with blooms. It is about 4 feet tall. Probably the most attractive and healthy looking plant that I have ever ordered through the mail. Three months later I have several baby lemons growing and a second flush of blooms. It has lost some leaves along the bottom during its winter indoors, but I am hopeful that in another month when I can bring it outside it will recover and put out new growth. This is my first citrus tree, and if I continue to have good luck with this one I will definitely be back to try another citrus variety from Fast Growing Trees.

We ordered this in October and requested to have it shipped right away. We are zone 4. It came looking great, with good strong branches, at least twice as think as what I expected9. It lost almost all of the leaves within a month, but After 2 months it was branching out everywhere with thick strong limbs. Four months later it is looking fantastic, lots of new limbs, leaves, and we even have had blooms. When I asked when I could expect it to fruit they said it would be a couple of years. (We got a smaller tree.) I'm thinking it will be a lot sooner than that

I purchased the large lemon tree...it arrived quickly and in healthy condition with baby lemons already growing. HOWEVER, the shape of the tree was pitiful: trunk came up just 21"" and appeared to have been cut off while the ONE long branch stuck out at a 75 degree angle....so very awkward. terribly pruned. Don't see how it will ever look any way but deformed

I bought the tree early this summer. It came healthy and happy. I bought the biggest one, so it was about 4-5 ft tall. It developed new leaves etc, but no blossoms/fruit, until just now! It is currently LOADED with blossoms. I live in zone 4, so had to bring it in, but I have where there iis lots of light. It couldn't be happier. FYI, use the proper fertilizer and you will see great results. Regardless of where your plant is, in or out, use a paintbrush to polinate and you will soon have tons of fruit. I have several other lemon plants, but bang for the buck, this was the best deal

Better than an air freshner
I love all my citrus trees from Fast Growing Trees. I feel uplifted every time I walk by. The fragrance is wonderful and they have become part of the family. Always in blossom, in fruit, or sending out new leaves. I couldn't do without "my babies". My lemon is doing great here in the high mountains. I will be bringing her in this week. I have a spray bottle to spray her several time a day. I raving about my trees caused my teller at the bank to get some too. She loves them.

Small than advertised
The tree arrived and my first impression was that it was smaller than advertised (as pictured). The height was 3 ft which included the root structure, but I was under the assumption that the height was starting from the base of the trunk. Also the girth was only about a quarter the size of that shown in the photo. I thought these trees were supposed to Be grafted onto a more developed tree. I can't see any sign of grafting and it seems to me that it is just a regular Meyer sapling. The tree seems to be doing fine though and even began to get new growth and some flowers before it got a little too cold and the flowers withered, but I expect the tree will have survive the winter outside and make a full recovery.

It doesn't get a lot of direct light. I also have another lemon tree that's doing okay. I went on a craze and bought several trees from ya'll cause they produced fruit so early! I'm disappointed now, cause I'm not sure what to do

Definitely goes into shock
I received my lemon tree in late Feb beginnig of March. The tree was packaged better than I could ever imagine, I also bought the Citris Planting Kit with it. The tree was full of leaves and around 60 little lemons on it. Considering the tree has been grown in a green house, traveled thousands of miles I check our weather. There was a cold fornt coming, so I put the tree in a pot in the garage with little christmas light around it and a grow light above it. The weather has wormed to the high 70s low 50. I have lost 50 lemons and countless leaves. Today is March 19th their are little blooms all over the tree. I am very impessed with Fast-Growing-Trees

I've enjoyed my Meyer Lemon Tree ever since purchasing last May. It's prolific with lemons which have not ripened yet. I plan to move inside during the winter.

My tree arrived within a week. It was well-packaged and arrived in very good shape. It looks healthy and already has some flowers. No complaints here. I would do business again.

AWESOME!!!
I received my 3 1/2 foot tree today. I have also ordered trees from two other sources. This one arrived in the best condition - by far. There must be at least 100 buds, at least half a dozen blooms, and about half a dozen baby lemons. I plan on leaving it in the pot it arrived in for about a week, then re-pot it. (I live in zone 5.) I have high hopes for this tree. We'll see how my other two trees do from the other growers. They are MUCH smaller and have NO buds, blooms, or baby lemons. They are obviously much younger trees and they arrived bare root. This tree was potted. The pruning is kind of odd. All the branches with leaves, buds, blooms, and lemons are on 2/3 of the tree. The other third has branches with buds, but no leaves, blooms or baby lemons. I'm pretty sure this is due to the way it was packed. I usually have a brown thumb, but with this plant, I am very hopeful. I will update this review in a few months to let you know how it is doing.

We ordered 2 Meyer Lemon Trees in Febuary. We live in Nashville Tennessee. They came well packed and looked beautiful. Taller and fuller than we expected. the trees were full of leaves and in bloom when they arrived. We put them in our bathroom and put a grow light in the light fixture above our tub. Most of the leaves fell off and I was worried. The blooms all have developed into about 20-30 grape sized lemons. We moved the trees outside in April and they continue to grow. The trees have not grown new leaves yet but have started to bloom again and there are an uncountable number of blooms on them again (hundreds). I think that they are very healthy and we are thrilled. I am assuming that if they have this many blooms, the trees will be fine. We plan on wintering them in the bathroom (we have a big garden tub where they fit quite well) in the cold months and moving them out in the spring. I have no reservations about ordering again. We also bought a fig tree that is blooming like it has been in our yard for years. Very Happy

My lemon tree came in excellent condition. The flowers are most fragrant. I have 14 lemons on the first year(I think that is not to bad for first year) I just cut into the first on. OH MY it is so juicey and so flavorful. Everything is so much better when it s home grown. I actually have found a few new buds on it

I Just got this tree today and it arrived in better condition then my other plants, minimum browning and very sturdy trunk, woody, and barely needs support. Hopefully it will like winter inside. Btw this was the 2-3 year old. Exited for the future

It has taken off since i put it in a container. It is covered with new growth, blooms and now covered with small green lemons all over it. I am tickled with my tree and can't wait to get ripe lemon

I didn't kill it!
I've never been able to keep a plant alive. When I was a kid, I got a cactus and it didn't survive a year. So I had low expectations when I got my skinny little tree and the planting kit. Bu barely 3 weeks later with a tiny window for light and a dog that barks at the tree constantly, I'm proud to say it's blooming and actually thriving. It's a great house plant/tree for the botanically challenged.

I'm very impressed with my purchase. I purchased two meyer lemon trees about 4 feet tall. I'm an apartment dweller so they're growing in a nook with windows on three sides and a grow lamp over them to provide enough light. I ordered and they were shipped right away in the end of Feb. It's now April and they've flowered and by using a q-tip to pollinate them I have so many bunches developing that I'm actually going to have to thin the number of lemons for the health of the tree to keep the branches from breaking.I really expected the first year to produce few if any lemons while it's still rooting and growing so this has been a very pleasant surprise. Can't wait to taste them since I've never had a meyer lemon before.

I have a Meyers lemontree that has been in our familyfor over 60 years! it has been the family joke every spring and summer who is going to carry it out and in since we live in ohio! i believe it might have been grafted with another since the lemons (15 a year) get the size of grapefruit but are definitely a lemon. the blooms are heavenly smelling!

The tree came nicely packed, 4' tall, straight, leafy with some flowering ,and symmetrical. The front of my house has the aroma of lemon tree. Being on the northern edge of 7A, my plants are back inside. The tree continues to bloom with 4 hours, a day, with a GE plant light reflector kit.

LOVE MY LEMON TREE!
I received my 3-4 ft meyer lemon tree around 3 weeks ago and I waited until now to see if I liked it and how it goes. it went very very nice. It was a little beaten up during shipping, due to it being in a dark box. Meaning the leaves were droopy, however a little water and sunlight fixed it asap. It had tons of lemons, some of which I had to take off to promote more growth. I potted it in miracle grow the citrus/cactus soil. Which I feel is a very good soil for it. But back to the tree! 3 weeks later the leaves got really dark green, the lemons have gotten bigger. In addition theres a lot of new branches coming up and I'm looking at a really nice tree! Thank Fast Growing Trees!!!

Received my Meyer Lemon Tree today
I am very pleased with the Lemon Tree I received today after ordering only 3 days ago. It seems very healthy and has new growth on it, and at least 3 feet tall. I will let you know when I start getting lemons. I look forward to the flowers and the wonderful smell. I ordered 2 Olive trees and the ice cream banana tree, and they arrived in great shape, I was very happy with my order. Thank you, Christine in Virginia

Better Than Expected
We got the tree in great shape with loads of leaves and some flowers. It was not long before the entire room had the fresh smells from the blossoms. I have placed the tree outside for the summer in it's container. Since we placed it outside the new leaves are larger and deeper green than the original leaves. Each flower has a cluster of 5-6 fruit each. AT this time there are about 50 small lemons on the tree and I hope they do not fall off before they are ripe. Some small ones have fallen, but we hope to have fresh lemons by this fall. Because of the quality of this tree we also have an orange tree. We live in the Midwest at this time but will move South in a couple years and then we plan to order several other trees for our yard. Everyone should be growing some of their own fruit.

The first year we had about a dozen lemons, very sweet, we used them all. Then the plant yellowed and almost died, lost almost all it leaves. The spring came and we took it back outside. It did not like winter in the house. We trimmed it back, gave it plenty of water and food. It's back in the house this winter, looks great, bloomed and so far I count 42 little green lemons on the tree. I have high hopes for this year

I gave this tree as a gift to my parents. It sits on their balcony. They love it and are always calling to tell me what its doing. It smells great when flowering! We're waiting for the first fruits to ripen right now; they still look like green little limes currently. It's stayed very healthy and has been fun indeed :)

Love this tree!
This tree arrived very quickly and was packaged very well. I had initially planted it in my yard but noticed after a few weeks that it was not really growing, so I pulled it up and potted it and it is on my back deck now where it has doubled its size in just three months! and in the last week it bloomed flowers which will be where the lemons will grow so we are needless to say very pleased!
I did use potting soil and fertilizer and have added fertilizer twice in small amounts since originally potting it. I highly recommend the fruit threes from this nursery I have never had a fruit tree bare fruit so quickly. Very impressed.

I am hesitant to rate the growth and hardiness of this tree as I've had it for less than a month. But it is doing very well and I am very excited about that. It came via the mail which was surprising because it travelled very well. When it arrived, I repotted it. This is one tree I will be keeping in my greenhouse during the cold weather.

I am Very pleased with this purchase.

Have started seeing new buds after two months
The plant arrived in a sealed package with a small pot. It looked a bit tired. I immediately transplanted it to a new bigger pot. A few leaves turned yellow. But soon afterward, it started recovering.

Finally, it has got lots of new flower buds. It does not look as full as it appears on the picture. But it seems to growing quite well now. I hope to see new lemons soon from those flowers.

meyer lemon tree
My meyer lemon tree arrived green with no dead leaves. I put it outside in shade. I transplanted it into a pot on day 2 and gradually over a week moved it into full sun. I leave it outside now in full sun and water it once a day in its pot. So far it has lost no leaves and even grew two new shoots out of the main trunk last week. I am eager to see it grow and bud out, but for now am very happy that I received a healthy tree. I plan to move the pot inside by a sunny window once frost nears in late fall.

When we received our tree it was 3.5' and looked healthy . We planted it as instructed. Many leaves had bug bites but we removed them and things started to grow. Had one bloom that produced a lemon but after a few weeks it fell off. Moved the tree outside when the average temp got above 55 and started to bloom. Counted 42 blooms but after a few weeks they ALL fell off. Nothing now. the tree is still growing with new leaves. Looks to be healthy but we may have it in a windy area. We'll see when the next batch tries.

I received my Meyers Lemon tree about a month ago, it came well packaged and in great shape. I was greatly disappointed because I expected it to come with some fruit and blooms since it was the largest Meyers tree you could order, it had neither. I live in zone 8,so it will be necessary for me to bring my Meyers lemon tree indoors for the winter. I will not past undue feelings on anyone until I go through a winter period with this plant indoors

So far, so good
My lemon tree is only a few months old but it has flourished since I got it planted and on the patio. Lot's of new growth. The real test will be this winter when it has to come indoors; my fingers are crossed!

Full of lemons
The tree is full of lemons to be after only 7 months in my care. Continual blossoms and new ones coming. I have bought meyer trees in the past from other growers, some are several years old with only 2 lemons yielded to date. this tree blows them away!
Patio grown.

I just got 20 lemons off my little tree. Only the 2nd year I've had it! (My co-workers love me.) Fruit smells great, and plant makes the whole house smell wonderful when it flowers. I put it out for the summer, bring the pot in for the winter

Meyer Lemon Tree
I received the Meyer Lemon Tree in the spring, and was delighted that it was so hardy. I didn't know what to expect since I've never purchased a tree online. It has tripled in size and has bloomed twice. It bloomed shortly after receiving and is blooming again now. I don't know when to expect fruit. I really wasn't expecting anything the first year, so we will see...It was only one hardy branch when I received, now there are branches coming out all over, and it is covered in healthy leaves, and now covered in blooms, a most wonderful fragrance. I decided to just plant it in a pot so I can bring in for the winter since our winters can be brutal. I am well pleased!

My tree arrived in great shape with three green lemons and full of blooms. It was much taller than I thought it would be. I was surprised to find out that it has long sharp thorns on the trunk of the tree. I have never heard of that before. I only mention it as a warning, because it was a painful experience to take it out of the box

Purchased this lemon tree for my daughter when she moved to Naples, FL when it arrived it was much shorter than I thought it was going to be. It began to grow and had little blooms coming on it and we all got excited thinking that fruit would follow, but it died

I ordered my tree about a month ago and it came in about two weeks. It was about 4' tall including roots. It had some buds that have now turned to blossoms! I have it on my patio. I live in zone 7. I would advise you to get this tree! it is very cute and looks nice on my patio!

Impressive Lemon Tree
When I ordered this tree, I wasn't sure what to expect but I was nicely surprised. I had ordered it in the pot, It came all ready to go right out of the box and there was zero shipping damage to the tree.
It bloomed shortly after I received it, that was another awesome surprise and now I seem to have about 8-10 lemons forming on the tree.
I am very happy and glad I purchased it. I keep it indoors since it does not like wind and I live in a very windy area. It is in a south facing window and so far the tree is very happy which makes me happy!
I recommended this to a friend and she bought one. I highly recommend you buying one if you would like to grow your own lemons :-)

This thing is doing great!
It started out slow and steady but after about 2 months it started rocking. Now it looks extremely healthy and has 3 large lemons that are nearing mature size, and about a dozen smaller ones. It's still in a pot right now, but I plan to plant it next spring.

I have only had this Meyers lemon plant a few months but it is healthy, growing and already has six green lemons ono it. I put it in a large pot and it is in full sun in Zone 8 and loves it. I have a covered patio and front barrier covers to use this winter. (No room in home)

I just love my lemon tree. It is about 6 ft tall and skinny. I have about 35 lemons on the tree. I am wondering though will the tree branches ever fill out. I would recommend this item to anyone looking to grow lemons. I am hoping that my branches will fill out and I know that I will be getting more lemons on this tree. Will certainly be purchasing more products from Fast-Growing Trees.

I love my meyer lemon tree. It's not very big but it came with 5 lemon starts. After a month or so blooms started in two area's.
I love watching the progress. My daughter made a bamboo trellis for the lemons when they get big.
It looks like it is a happy tree even though in gets only three hours of real sun a day. I live in a condominium so the sun area is restricted as it's on the patio.
I also bought a key lime tree. It has no buds, just leaves. Looks like this tree will take some time for buds to come on.
The trees arrived in good condition even though it traveled for seven days. I bought organic dirt and fertilizer and water the trees every seven days. The more sun the more watering bit that is my schedule.
I love plants and have a lot on my porch for a condo but my most fun plant is the trees.

Meyer Lemin Tree
I love my new lemon tree. I got it two months ago nicely packed. I transplanted it to beautiful clay pot. It is bloomong now. It must think that it lives in California. But it is WA state here. I guess I have to take it inside during the winter rainy days. I am very happy.

Amazing amount of fruit!
When I received my tree I foolishly pulled it from the box tearing off many leaves. It almost immediately started to bear blossoms, so delayed replanting, now covered in baby lemons and masses more blossoms in February! What to do? I do bring it inside if we have a freeze, don't want to risk losing blossoms. Bought about 6 months ago.
Bought a garden center Meyer Lemon, same size, two years ago, it has not done a thing and doesn't look happy, never again!

What a wonderful specimen!
I am very pleased with our Meyer Lemon Tree. Thought it wouldn't have blossoms. What a pleasant surprise. It had small cluster of flowers which are extremely fragrant. The bees love it along with all of our hummingbirds. We have it on our deck and the entire area has the most beautiful aroma. We are now watching the lemons grow. Will take the tree into the house when it gets cool. By that time, the lemons will be ready to be enjoyed.

I was a little skeptical at first. It did take a long time for my tree to ship (over 45 days) and once it arrived I was wondering what I paid $50.00 for a “twig” but it has since been very impressive. Easy to grow and withstood the heavy wind and rain storms we have had this summer. I would recommend getting the larger tree if you’re looking for quicker results.

Meyer Lemon Tree in Dutchess County, NY
Packed very nicely from the grower with good planting and care instructions. Have three tiny lemons growing since the tree was shipped in early May. Hope as the years go by, more buds will produce more fruit. But so far, things look good. Will expect more leaves and flowers this time next year.

Can't wait for the tree to have fruit!
My husband is just obsessed with lemons so I thought, why not buy him a lemon tree? I paid to have an older tree shipped, so that it would already be well on it's way to baring fruit. I was a little surprised that the tree was what looked like a skinny branch. It was traumatized for several weeks after getting it, which we did expect. However, in the last two weeks it has started to fill out and I am hopeful it will be a nice big tree before long.

Mr/Mrs. Meyer Lemon arrived as one 2ft. branch with healthy leaves.We transplanted it to a larger pot and in 3 months it has produced another branch. Leaves are still healthy, but I think this is s-l-o-w. As we continue to feed and water, I hope for more progress.

It will be brought in for our winter months.

After a short set-back caused by shipping shock, the lemon tree took off, even getting a few blossoms. I will have to winter it indoors since I live in Vermont and am anxious to see it next spring, when I bring it back out on my deck.

looking forward to improved hardiness
unfortunately, the nights in L.A. were too cold for my poor tree, and when it arrived, I left it outside the first night--all leaves but three dropped off, and the couple of blooms that were there when it arrived dropped off also. it seems to be not only cold sensitive, but sun sensitive--two starts had begun on the tiny trunk last week, and on Sunday I left it in full sun for most of the day, and one of the starts totally wilted and died. the other survived, thankfully. this little tree is SENSITIVE!!! it's not dead yet though, so I'm holding out for success.

My meyer lemon tree is doing very good. I have three lemons and they are about as big as a walnut. I bought a citirs fertilizer and put it in the dirt and one of my lemons turned brown and fell off and I thought the fertilizer might be a little too strong, but since then I have three more lemons and they look very good.
This is my first tree so I do not know how it will go, but right now things are going well. Thanks for asking.

One of the trees (we got 2) came with fruit on it, but in over a month,it has not changed in size. The other one has babie,but
they are turning yellow when just 1/2 an inch long. So, still
waiting to see if they will grow. They are watered regularly and have been fertilized.

Review Title
I ordered two Meyer lemons in February. When I first got them they were beautiful and blooming. After about a week the blooms fell and here were tiny lemons on the buds so I was super excited. But in June, the trees bloomed again and the "dime-sized" lemons all fell off? I'm not sure if this is common or not. It's almost August now and they both look very healthy still. Now I just need them to produce lemons. Overall I'm happy with them.

Different than I thought
I bought a tree thinking that it would produce fruit soon or even have fruit already since the tree is said to be able to produce fruit the 1st year. My plant looked healthy but stark. I bought a plant light to help it along and the tree is growing but I figure it will be another 2 years before I get to see a lemon. It is a healthy plant and I will get lemons eventually.

Takes time
Well, I got this bush a few months ago. It came looking like a vine tied to a stick. It now has a couple more branches off it and I have 2 lemons growing. I waited for it to show signs of growth and added a little fertilizer. It is growing still and making progress, just not fast, which is fine. I would rather have a strong bush that can support tasty lemons.

My feedback
Well, it had 2 lemons still green when I got it. Put in a pot 2x the size recommended. Still has the 2 lemons still green and barley much bigger. It is outside and does get the 12 hours of sunlight. There are many more leaves but no real growth. It's almost August so I dont see them turning yellow before seasons end. Shame to, because I got the tree before spring and had it under a grow light until i was able to put outside.

I have on deck with plenty of morning sun and full light in the afternoons. Since I am in zone 5 I don't know if tree willroduce this first year or if I have to wait until 2 nod year. I will have to move inside for over wintering.

Unhappy with appearance
The tree arrived fast and is healthy, but the appearance of the tree. It came in lapsided. The branches were only on one side of the tree. It had a lot of flowers and small lemons, but again, it is lapsided. Customer service said that if tree is healthy, which is true, they will not replace it.

No Lemons This Year!
Received my Lemon Tree in good condition. Needless to say I was a little surprised to find out the my 2-3 tree was actually a 1/4" round stick (trunk) with a 7" branch. It had about a dozen leaves. In two months it has doubled in size and doing well. Nevertheless, if it continues to grow at its present rate, I should have lemons in 2-3 years, maybe. Just don't expect to get something that looks like the picture.

My cold-hardy avocado tree took a real beating while being shipped so I wasn't surprised when it happened to my meyer lemon tree. All the leaves fell off but that also happened to my avocado tree. They regrew on my avocado tree after a few months so I'm hoping that does the same with my lemon tree.

not what i expected
We ordered the 3-4ft tree. it was sent to us basically trimmed down to a long stem and 6-8 leaves on it. since then we have one branch that has grown and 3 lemons that are starting to grow. I would not consider this tree a fast growing tree and I do not know why it was pruned down so much much where it is a long stem looking like a stick with a few leaves on the top. I would attach picture if I was able to.

Not so much
Planted this tree as instructed for a patio planter. Kept it in indoor sunny window until weather warmed enough to take it outside. It leafs out a little bit and starts to look like it might become healthy, then sheds most of its leaves and does the same thing again. I keep putting off throwing it out in the vain hope it might improve.Wanted a lemon tree for years and was very excited about this, but wouldn't buy again.

no change yet
I wrote an email yesterday about this tree. Haven't heard any reply yet. We got this tree almost 2 months ago along with the citrus planter kit. We followed directions to the letter and have had great, warm weather. We live in St. Paul, MN and have been having warm, humid weather and great sunny days. Not over watering or underwatering. Added recommended fertilizer with last watering.

There is NO change. No new leaves, no growth, nothing. The leaves look healthy, but there has not been one iota of change. So this tree is not "fast growing".

When will it change and grow? Where would we look for anything? New leaf buds? At the end of the branches? What sort of change will happen?

We would appreciate any sort of information you can give us.

Thanks!

Hasn't died yet, but I wonder how much longer it will last. Arrived good and healthy with one green lemon on a lower branch. Heren we nare several months later, the green lemon is still green and has not gained in size. It gets water, as needed, soil checked with two different moistrure content meters. It gets 5 to 6 hours of full sun, we live in arizona. It is planted in a ceramic pot the same size & shape as the one you show in your catalog. The tree has lost about 15% of the leaves it arrived with. we have done all we know in caring for and growing trees. We have had good fortune with a wide variety of plants and trees, including Blueberries, Peach, Appricot, Apple, Pear, and Orange trees to name but a few. Your tree has me stumped. If it survives th ewinter inside, we might just keep it. Still waiting for blooms. It did start to grow new fruit toward the top of the tree. They never matured. Any suggestions will be appriciated. This was a birthday present for my wife of 35 years. The success of this little tree means a great deal to her and to me. Thank you

Hi
What size pot should I plant this tree in?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2014
Best Answer: To begin with, a 12-inch pot will do quite well. As the tree grows, every 12-18 months, you will need to transplant it to a slightly larger pot until you get to the size pot you want to keep it in. Many use a 24-inch pot for the final size. Select pots with smooth sides; if the rim is smaller than the widest part you will have trouble getting the roots out when transplanting time comes. When you change pots, use a pot that is only slightly bigger than the root ball (if the tree is in a 12-inch pot, move it to a 14-inch pot). The tree will grow to fit the pot you give it, so if you want a smaller tree, you should end up with a smaller pot than 24 inches, perhaps a 16-inch or 18-inch pot. Whatever pots you use, make sure they have excellent drainage!

I live in zone 5. I purchased my tree last May. During the summer months my tree had full sunlight on our deck. When I purchased this plant it had both small lemons and blooms. It did very well this summer. I moved it to a large south facing window this fall and it remains n this spot. I have harvested about 5 lemons and have 10 golf ball (or larger) green lemons hanging in clumps on the tree. The tree has very few leaves left and they look some what stressed. Do I need to sacrifice this fruit to give this tree some strength? Some expert guidance is appreciated.
TineH on Jan 4, 2015
Best Answer: First, you can thin your small lemons to only one per cluster, or take them all off. Lemon trees tend to lose their leaves when stressed by changes in their environment, so moving your plant indoors probably caused the leaf drop. Watering is critical - do not overwater, but water when you stick your finer in the soil and it is dry to the second knuckle. That being said, never let the soil in the pot dry out all the way. Also, be sure you have excellent drainage. Don't let the pot sit in a saucer with water in it, as the soil will absorb the water and rot the roots. If you need a saucer to protect your floor, elevate the pot over the saucer on some kind of supports so the bottom doesn't sit in water. Indoor humidity tends to be a lot lower than outdoor humidity, so if your plant isn't happy, you can try misting it a couple of times a day. The large south-facing window sounds like it will provide the needed 6-8 hours a day of direct sunlight; this is important, because a tree that doesn't get enough sun will lose its leaves.

We have had your Meyer Lemon tree since May of this year. It has lost about 40% of its leaves and no new growth. It was indoors for about a month, then got warm enough to move outside where it stayed until last week. My question is why do the leaves get yellow and drop off? The Key Lime we got at the same time is thriving and has new growth.
Michael C on Sep 19, 2014
Best Answer: The tree is acclimating to the move indoors and will resume growth when this is done. It's got a lot less light now and air moisture, so give it time and do not over water.

When is the best time to prune?
Jane B on Dec 4, 2014
Best Answer: You should be very sparing with your pruning, for the blooms and fruits are borne on the ends of the stems,and you can be cutting off your next crop of lemons. Dead wood or a branch that is growing too long or straight up can be pruned any time. If you wish to cut off the bottom branches to make a single trunk, or if you want to shape the plant smaller, you can prune when the plant is in slower growth mode, in the late winter. You can also thin the fruit to one per cluster to get bigger fruit and put less stress on the tree.

How long should it take before lemons start growing?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: If you bought a larger size tree, you might have lemons on it when you receive it, and if they are big enough, they should go ahead and ripen for you; if you bought a smaller tree, you might have to wait a year or so for the first lemons to start. The amount of lemons your tree produces will keep increasing for several years as the tree becomes more established.

is this lemon tree a dwarf? will it stay small
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: The Meyer Lemon is a dwarf that grows 6-8 feet tall in a pot and often smaller. If it gets larger than you wish, it can be made smaller either by pruning or by growing in a smaller pot. In the ground, it will grow to a semi-dwarf size of 10-12 feet tall or larger, but can be pruned to make it smaller.

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.

When do the trees produce fruit? Does the fruit come after the flower? I have 1 tree -- do I need a second tree? Thanks so much. Pat Keaton
Pat K on Mar 4, 2015
Best Answer: The Meyer Lemon produces fruit year round, and blooms, too. It will start out with just a few, probably within the next year and certainly within 2 years, and produce ever larger crops as it matures. The blooms come first, and then the fruit, which often takes 6 to 9 months to ripen, and even more if brought inside for the winter. The plant is self-fertile, and does not need another plant to pollinate it. However, if you grow it indoors, you might need to take a small paint brush and brush pollen from one bloom to another, since there will be no wind or insects to help spread the pollen to other blooms.

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: It takes from 6 to 9 months for a Meyer Lemon to ripen, and can take up to a year if you bring it indoors for the winter. They will gain considerable size long before they are ripe, so it is easy to misjudge.

There are several signs that the lemons are ripe: they will become a warm shade of yellow with little to no green at the end of the fruits; they become heavier and more rounded in shape; and they should give in a little when squeezed. Of course, the best way to tell if your fruit is ripe is to cut it off the tree and slice it, though if your tree is young and you don't have many fruit, you might be reluctant to use this method! The flesh should be yellow and sweet-tart, rather than greenish and sour.

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.

I just got my lemon tree. There are many branches starting to grow on the trunk. Do I cut them off or leave them on?
cheryl l on May 30, 2015
Best Answer: If it's below the graft point you cut them off. If it's above the graft point it depends on how you want to shape the tree. More or less you should be pruning these as if you wanted to grow a very big bonsai tree. If you want a taller tree you should prune to encourage upward and outward growth.

My tree is a yr. old and 27" high. Should I prune it back so it will fill out ?
bob h on Mar 24, 2015
Best Answer: I would let the tree grow fro a while before thinking about pruning. A citrus tree does not require pruning to keep it productive, and will develop an attractive shape without any pruning. There are some things you will want to prune: any sprouts growing from below the graft line near the bottom of the trunk; any crossing branches; or any dead wood. You will also want to cut back any unusually vigorous branches that grow longer than the others and make the tree look lopsided. The best time to prune is after the first good flush of spring growth; research at the University of Florida found that trees pruned then will recover more quickly and grow more vigorously than those pruned at other times. If, after several years, your tree is leggy and you wish to make it more bushy, you can cut it back by 20% and let it re-grow.

Hi the tree that is 2-3 years of age is giving lemons already?
Gracyy on Jan 7, 2015
Best Answer: If you buy one of the larger lemon plants (3-4 feet or 5-6 feet) your plant will probably already have blooms and lemons when you receive it. However, even the smaller plants should be beginning to bloom and bear fruit after 2-3 years, if they like their growing conditions (light, water, fertilizer). Please bear in mind, no matter the size of the plant, you might have some leaf loss and growing will slow for a few weeks until the plant gets used to its new home. Once it is acclimated, it should grow well for you.

in cooler climates when should i bring in my lemon tree?
phil l on Sep 8, 2014
Best Answer: I bring mine in when the night temperatures get below 50 degrees. They say they are tolerant of lower temperatures but I do not want to shock it that much. May plant has six lemons on it now and it is doing well. Watering is critical (do not overwater and provide great drainage) . Do not set in drafts and provide plenty of light. It will loose some leaves when moved but I get a couple harvests of lemons per year. I have done a lot of internet reading and have a friend who has had one for years and he gives me advice on it. Esponia brand citrus fertilizer is supposed to work well but I haven't found it locally, he recommended ferti-lome root stimulator and plant starter solution to get it established and now to switch to a slow release low numbers fertilizer like 3-3-3. I found a tree stake fertilizer that a store recommended so I just crumbled part of a stake to try it . Like I said I just tried it so I do not know that it will work. Do not overfertilize.

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.

How soon will the 2-3 ft Meyer Lemon Tree have fruit. How old are these trees and are they grafted?
Arlene U on May 26, 2015
Best Answer: These trees are grafted, with the top part from a mature Meyer Lemon tree grafted onto root stock that is cold hardy and disease resistant and with several years growth on it already. Our trees already from one to 4 years years old, depending on what size you buy, and the larger ones will already be bearing blooms and fruit in the nursery. The 2-3 foot size will probably start to bloom and fruit a year after you purchase it. However, Mother nature is full of diversity, this time may vary according to the growing conditions you give it.

Best Answer: Meyer Lemon trees do well planted in the ground in a zone 9. They're cold hardy down to about 24 degrees. If you area gets that cold or colder then your tree should be potted so you're able to bring it indoors during cold snaps.

Zone 5, at what temperature should I bring my lemon tree indoors?
At the moment is is full of buds!
Pietro on Sep 17, 2014
Best Answer: I'm in the colder regions of zone 5. I bring mine inside when the outdoor temperatures at night regularly go below 45-50 degrees. As long as you're moving it to a nice sunny place it shouldn't influence the buds.
I have two ---- one budding and one pretty heavy with lemons and they make the transition fine.

how often should you fertilize my tree ?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: It depends on the fertilizer and time of year. With the slow-release type, twice per year is sufficient. I use Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro and use 1 teaspoon per gallon on 'fertilizer Friday' while there's fruit production, and 1/4 teaspoon per gallon during the "off season". You can find it at Amazon and it works great!

Received the Meyer lemon tree in May 2014 and have about seven lemons since June. Curious about how long does it take for the fruit to turn yellow? They are about two or three inches in diameter.
A shopper on Oct 8, 2014
Best Answer: Meyer lemons do not ripen like apples and pears do. They gradually mature and gain sweetness, in fact the fruit may take as long as as nine month to ripen.
