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:
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.

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 2 - Place Your Plant
Next, separate the roots of your Meyer Lemon Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
|Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
