Love it!
First of all let me say that it was shipped in excellent condition. The packaging was ideal and the tree arrived healthy and blooming. Second, this tree is prettier than it is pictured. It has thrived all summer while still in the pot it was shipped in. I'll be planting it in the ground this fall and hope that it makes the transition easily.

I am very pleased with the tree and with Fast Growing Trees!

Love lemons.
It's ok. I thought it would have more to it. For the price I think I expected more. I have 2 others and that I purchased here and they were much fuller. Perhaps it's the type of lemon tree it is.

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

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

Planting & Care

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

Eureka Lemon Tree Planting Diretions

The Eureka Lemon Tree (Citrus limon 'Eureka') is an easy to grow, drought tolerant citrus tree that thrives in zones 8-11 when planting outdoors. If you’re in a cooler zone, plant your tree in a pot and bring it indoors during the winter months. This tree can easily reach a mature height of 8-12 feet and width of 6-8 feet, but can be pruned to maintain a smaller, more manageable tree. The variegated leaves are apple green with pale white-yellow edges and are accompanied by beautiful white, fragrant flowers in spring. The lemons have a pink flesh and are green with yellow streaks when younger. Once matured, they turn to a pale yellow and are ready for harvesting from October to December. They’re acidic and juicy making them perfect for making lemonade or adding some sweetness to flavor foods.

Seasonal Information: Eureka trees will do best in warmer climates as it is classified as a tropical plant. Zones 8 to 11 are ideal for outdoor planting. However, if you do experience cold winters, plant your Eureka tree in a container and bring it inside for the fall and winter seasons. We recommend planting in Spring through Fall for outdoors since they are sensitive to colder temperatures.

Selecting a location: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, 6-8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade, but thrive in full sun. You’ll want to ensure trees are spaced 8-10 feet apart if planting more than one. These trees also do better in areas with high humidity so you may also need to create humidity for your tree by misting the leaves daily with water. Potted plants do enjoy a daily misting for humidity but placing a tray with rocks filled with water under the plant will feed humidity to the tree as the water evaporates.

Planting Directions (in Ground): If you are located in zones 8-11 and your winter temperatures stay consistently warm, your Eureka will do well being planting outside in the ground. Be sure the area has well draining soil.

1) Dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system.
2) Place the tree in the hole and back fill it with your sandy, well-drained, acidic soil. If you have clay soil, try amending it with sand, stone, perlite or fine potting soil.
3) Tamp the soil down as you backfill the hole to cut back on any pockets from forming.
4) After planting, be sure to give your Eureka tree a deep watering for about 5 minutes. Mulching around the tree will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the colder winter months as well.

Planting Instructions (potted): If your winter temperatures are consistently below 40 degrees, plant your tree in a container that can easily be brought outside in the summer months and inside in the winter. A planter with built-in casters is a good choice so it can easily be moved. Choose a pot slightly larger than what it was shipped in that has plenty of holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Be sure to plant in well-draining potting soil preferably recommended for acid loving citrus plants.

1) Fill your pot halfway with soil. Remove the tree from its original pot and gently place it in the potting soil.
2) Fill in around the tree with the remainder of the potting soil but be sure not to cover the grafted area of the tree. Leave about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.
3) Lightly pack down the soil. Immediately after planting, give your tree a deep watering until it flows from the holes in the bottom of the pot.
4) Place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight. Supplement with a grow light if it will not receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day. You may also need to create humidity for your tree by placing the pot on a saucer of pebbles or misting the leaves daily with water.

Pollination assistance: You can pollinate your indoor trees by hand since most people do not keep a healthy bee population within their home. Simply take a small, dry, fine tipped paint brush and stick it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated. Do this once daily and don’t wash the paintbrush until after the blooms have been pollinated. The bloom will fall off naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

Watering: Eurekas do not like wet feet. Be sure to give your tree a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2-3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Yellowing and droopy leaves is a common sign of over watering while brown, dry leaves are a sign of under watering. Mulching can help retain the soil moisture and also combat competing grasses/weeds.

For potted Eurekas, stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels more dry at that depth. When ready to water, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Fertilization: Feed your Eureka tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer once every six weeks. Espoma Citrus Tone is highly recommended but any organic fertilizer specifically for citrus should suffice. This will help keep your tree on a healthy growth cycle but also replenish the nutrients in the soil. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2-3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit and has got a few years on it, you can skip the cold season fertilization. The same fertilizing regimen should be followed for potted Eureka trees as well. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.

Pruning: Pruning can be done at any time of the year for in ground planted Eurekas except in the winter. Make 45-degree angle cuts to remove dead or crossing limbs and also to thin out the tree to allow more light to flow between the branches. “Leggy” looking branches may indicate that there is not enough light getting to the tree’s interior. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree. Remove suckers as they form/grow from the base as they will steal away nutrients from the primary trunk of the tree. Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted Eureka.

We live in Pensacola FL. I had a lemon tree and two orange trees several years ago...they froze. Here in the panhandle citrus can be tricky. The Eureka lemon will be easy enough to move to the Florida room when a freeze is on the way and the Eureka is my favorite lemon. Seedier than the Meyer, yes, but the flavor is pucker-up fabulous.

Eureka lemons produce fruit longer than other lemon varieties.

What do you mean pink lemon tree? Is this Eureka Lemon Tree yellow or pink?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2014
Your lemon tree is has green and white leaves but your fruit on the outside is yellow.Your Eureke tree lemons are yellow, they are pink inside only. Great taste &a plenty uses for the fruit
i have one of these. I brought it indoors in October. IT bloomed and produced small lemon buds. They have fallen off and I am also losing some leaves. Is that normal, since it is now indoors?
Ron H on Dec 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It could be a little stressed out from the move indoors, which is perfectly normal. It should bounce back.
I live in zone 8a in Texas. It seldom gets below 32 but we do have the occasional dip into the low 20's or high teens from time to time. It almost never stays that low for very long. Will this lemon tree be ok for outside permanent planting?
ToddJones on Jul 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Eureka Lemon Tree will do well outside in zone 8. Our zoning is very precise. However you can protect your tree in the winter by putting hay,pine straw or mulch down around the base of it to keep the roots warm. You can also cover it with a sheet at night to protect it from frost.
I am in growing zone 7, right in between indoors/outdoors planting. I would like a lemon tree for outside so would this tree grow in the outdoors? I live in Missouri in the boot heel 13 miles from the Arkansas border.
David M on Jun 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Missouri gets a little too cold for the Eureka Lemon Tree. You would need to bring it in doors during the winter.
How soon will this tree bear fruit? If I buy one now in the fall, can I expect to see it blossoming in the late spring?
G K on Nov 8, 2014
Do you need more than one lemon tree for it to bear fruit?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, one tree is just fine. However, I have had better luck with my citrus trees bearing fruit from the blossoms that occur outdoors, as opposed to the wave of blossoms which occur midwinter inside (I always get two waves of blossoms per year).
Lemons are only produced between Oct-Dec?
Vlt53 on Apr 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The peak season for production is in the late winter through early spring months
What is the best lemon tree for containers and indoors for winter and south west facing deck in spring/summer?
Emmett M on Jun 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey! My Meyer lemon is doing really well, inside (in the winter)and out (in the spring through fall). Especially being in New Jersey during the winter and summer facing the West (somewhat south)- I have a balcony and it lives in the pot. Hope this helps!
