Here’s Why the Meyer Lemon is the Best Selling Patio Citrus Tree:

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, so you can produce fruit with just one tree. However, a tree will produce even more with a second one to cross-pollinate with.

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 thousands of dollars of fruit over a 30 year period. If you bring it indoors, try to place it within 4 feet of a sunny window. Meyer Lemons love growing in containers. The size of your pot will determine the size of your tree.

All Meyer Lemon Trees are NOT the Same. With ours you will be able to pick fruit up to 3-5 years sooner, because your tree is grafted, not grown from seed. We graft the top of a mature Meyer Lemon tree on to the root stock of a cold hardy, disease resistant citrus tree. The result: your tree thinks it's mature and starts producing fruit right away. Grafting is a natural process that has been used for thousands of years. It is time consuming and can add a year or more to our growing process. But here's the benefit for you:

  • You won't have to wait years for lemons
  • Lemons proven to taste great, rather than playing genetic roulette
  • A cold hardy tree, that's less prone to disease problems
  • More fruit over the life of your tree
  • A more controlled size 

Your tree can grow twice as fast. It arrives in it's own container, with all of its roots intact. Some companies ship citrus trees without dirt on the roots. This is fine for some types of fruit trees but not citrus. Their roots can dry out and become damaged. This will slow their growth. Your tree arrives with a large root system, ready to support rapid growth. The root systems on our shorter Meyer Lemons are 3-4 times larger than some of our competitors. While their trees are growimg roots, your tree is growing fruit.

What Size do I Need? If your sun exposure or growing conditions are less than ideal, then we recommend you start with one of our larger trees. They're already at a heavy fruiting size, with well developed branching structures. Some of these trees have been grown for up to 4-5 years and have fruited for several seasons. They do run out of stock.  So we recommend that you place your order while supplies are still available.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

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

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.

By: Alex
I just got the meyer lemon about 1 month ago it has not grown or came with any lemons. The Tree is very healthy and is growing lots of leaves :)
It is a good tree to get and is easy to grow in any climate

By: Alllison Pyrch
The tree came quickly, looked good, and is growing well with lots of fruit. The problem is the fruit is all green. Even though it's getting huge and softer it's not turning yellow.

By: Emily
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!

By: John
Purchased this tree in January...It is now the end of May...No fruit...It has bloomed twice..small lemon come on the plant and then fall off...When I received the plant is was just one straight trunk with 3 small branches at the top...4 months later and no change..

By: Christine
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 :)

By: Jeffrey Hirsch
excellent product

By: Marilyn Rawlings
I love the evolution of growth of this tree. It looks good.

By: darrell Fennell
My tree came in excellent condition and grew well (and even blossomed and fruited during the winter months inside).

By: Mario
Nice tree did very well on the deck.

By: Ralph Barris
easy growing...little care

By: scott
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.

By: Jaime
I am very happy with my Meyer Lemon tree, no complaints to speak of My fiance purchased it for my Mother's Day gift this year. It is a nice shape and the new leaves have grown quite a bit in the month or so that I've owned it. I am very much looking forward to my first lemons.

By: Dan
Great lemon tree. I would deffinately recommend it. We had it outside and we just recently put in indoors and is bloming with lots of flowers!

By: Linda Ferrell
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.

By: Brien Richards
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.

By: Heidi Z
My lemon tree, bloomed beautifully and smelled awesome.... then died right before my lime tree died. I have no idea what went wrong. I was in the desert when I ordered the tree and had a desert email account and couldn't find my order number so I couldn't get a replacement tree. I was very sad about the whole thing.

By: Kate Stevens
When I got my Meyer Lemon Tree, I was so excited.It has been 3 weeks now, and it has already grown 3 inches!Most of my tree's leaves are doing great, but some of them have been really dry since I got the tree. I can't wait until my tree will start growing lemons!!

By: Elizabeth Rooks
Tree arrived a little wilt but bounced right back looks great very pleased its beautiful tree kids can't wait till they get to make lemonade

By: Larry
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!

By: Theresa DeLorenzo
We are very pleased with our Lemon Tree. There are 15 beautiful lemons growing right now. I can't wait to see them turn yellow so we can enjoy them.

By: Lisa Birkley
Love the smell, but it is a little slow growing.

By: Madaktude
I ordered this in March (zone 6A) and I was pleasantly surprised at how big and healthy the tree that I received was. It came in a 5 ft box and the plant was that tall. It also has tiny lemons starting. Very happy.

By: Emily Davis
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.

By: Holly Golden
We have had our meyer Lemon tree for just under 1 year. Is just now producing fruit (inside my house no less!) and has done exceedingly well for us. Hoping to transplant it this spring. Pleased with my purchase 100%

By: Cynthia Powell
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

By: Michael
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.

By: James Wells
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.

By: Tish Bonham
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!

By: Allison
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!)

Buy this tree!! I live in zone 7.I bought the meyer lemon tree 8 months ago. It arrived in good shape with some blossoms. I was treated to the wonderful smell of lemon blossoms all winter. I just now have harvested my first lemon. It has a wonderful taste and was very large.I did some research and found that lemons take awhile to ripen, so be patient.

By: Tish Talikka
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.

By: Lori Eder
I bought the lemon tree as a sympathy gift - the friends say that the lemons are really starting to grow now, and they are very excited about it.

By: Barbara Hamilton
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.

By: Elizabeth Killips
my Meyer Lemon Tree has just arrived. It is a skinny long crooked branch with a few leaves. Hope it will fill out but very disappointed with it.

By: Ryan Stefman
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.

By: Patty
I bought this tree as the customer service rep recommended. I am excited to say it has done extremely well. I had several lemons this year and the tree is highly scented and looks gorgeous!!!

By: Connie
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.

By: Linda
I live in Oregon area 8. I bought one of these and was so happy with it. First year had several lemons. I forgot it outside and after a freeze I remembered it and it died. So, not so good for me but not the tree's fault.

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.

By: Carol
When I received my lemon tree, it was already flowering. I cannot express the wonderful aroma. My tree already has little lemons growing on it. I'm so excited. I am so happy I purchased this tree.

By: John Scott Major
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!

By: Melissa E.
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, 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.

By: Jacqui
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.

By: Diana Litz
I purchased my lemon tree a couple of years ago. It produced around 11 lemons the first year! Now, however, it appears dead. It doesn't seem to like the winters inside my house. 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!

By: bdub
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.

By: Lucinda Lemon
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.

By: Dana
We bought one kind of late in the season for northwest Washington State. After about a month after it was transplanted into a large pot, in a sunny window, it went nuts! More than 18" of new growth from every branch in a month and still growing! Can't wait tell spring!

By: Eve
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!

By: James
10 months and counting ..very disappointed so far no blooms or fruit... was careful to pot the plant carefully and have watched the leaves grow and die in rapid succession.. no hint of a fruit .
