Kitchen or Patio Growth That's Effortless

The Meyer Lemon Tree ticks all the boxes of a must-have plant. Not only is it a prolific producer of sizable lemons, but it’s also:

- Ultra-hardy
- Delicious
- Fast growing

It’s one of the best-selling patio citrus trees. And it's hardy enough to thrive both indoors and outdoors. If you live in a colder climate, you can move it inside for the winter. Your Meyer Lemon Tree will continue to bear fruit and brighten your home. Its vivid yellow and orange fruit contrast against its glossy evergreen foliage for a complementary look - the quintessential, all-time favorite houseplant.

A ton of delicious lemons to eat and share - that's what you'll get with the Meyer Lemon. Meyer Lemon Trees are prolific fruiters, even when they're young. Order our large-sized trees, and you will be picking lemons the very first season. Plus, Meyer Lemons ripen over several months, so you'll have more time to enjoy them. And they're naturally sweeter than standard lemons. You can make healthy, nutritious Meyer Lemonade with just lemons and water, so processed sugar and artificial sweeteners are unnecessary.

The aroma from this amazing tree? Pure delight. Artful citrus blossoms fill your home or yard with a fresh scent. The fragrance is reminiscent of a jasmine and citrus blend. And the blooms self-pollinate, so you can produce fruit and one-of-a-kind fragrance with just one tree. However, your tree will produce an even bigger bounty with a second Meyer Lemon for cross-pollination.

Best of all: This must-have tree is hassle-free because it’s highly adaptable and forgiving. Just give it a bit of organic fertilizer and water occasionally. Long-lived and capable of producing thousands of dollars of fruit over a 30-year period, it’s super versatile. If you bring it indoors, try to place it within 4 feet of a sunny window. Meyer Lemons also love growing in containers - the size of your pot will determine the size of your tree.

Because we’ve nurtured our Meyer Lemons meticulously and grafted the trees, you’ll be able to pick fruit up to 3-5 years sooner. We graft the top of a mature Meyer Lemon Tree onto the rootstock of a cold hardy, disease-resistant citrus tree. Our thorough grafting process means that your tree will grow twice as fast. It arrives in its own container, with all of its roots intact. Your tree arrives with a large, well-wrought root system that's ready to support rapid growth.

What size do I need? If your sun exposure or growing conditions are less than ideal, we recommend that 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. 

Don't wait - see what all the hype is about. Order your own Meyer Lemon Tree today for fresh citrus and effortless care that are delivered right to your door!





Meyer Lemon Tree Pollination

Meyer Lemon Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Meyer Lemon Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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.
January 1, 2013
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
January 1, 2013
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.

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

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

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 bought a Meyer lemon tree and a lime, and an orange tree. These are the best live plants I have EVER received and I have bought live plants many times. I got them about 6 weeks ago and all of them have fruit already forming. Would definitely buy from here again
January 1, 2013
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 :)

Planting & Care



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


Meyer Lemon Tree Planting Diretions

The Meyer Lemon tree, is a citrus fruit native to China. It was introduced to the United States in 1908 by the agricultural explorer Frank Nicholas Meyer. The Meyer Lemon tree is commonly grown in China in garden pots as an ornamental tree. It became popular as a food item in the United States when Martha Stewart began featuring them in her recipes. By the mid 1940s the Meyer lemon tree had become widely grown in California. However, at that time it was discovered that a majority of the Meyer Lemon trees being cloned were symptom-less carriers of the Citrus Tristeza virus, a virus which had killed millions of citrus trees all over the world and rendered other millions useless for production.

After this finding, most of the Meyer Lemon trees in the United States were destroyed to save other citrus trees. A virus-free selection was found in the 1950s by Don Dillon of the California company Four Winds Growers, and was later certified and released in 1975 by the University of California as the 'Improved Meyer Lemon Tree.'

Seasonal information: The Improved Meyer lemon tree grows well in warm climates. They are fairly vigorous; a tree grown from seed usually begins fruiting in four years. While the Improved Meyer lemon tree produces fruit throughout the year, the majority of the crop is harvested in winter.

Location: It is best to plant the Improved Meyer lemon tree in a warm, sunny area where the soil drains well. Six hours (or more) of direct sun is best for the tree. Planting next to a house or under an eave will provide some frost protection. Remember to water the Improved Meyer lemon tree deeply once every seven to ten days in midsummer (newly planted trees may need more frequent watering until established), and water less often if it rains or if the weather is cool.

Planting instructions: Choose a pot large enough to give your Improved Meyer lemon tree roots room to spread. Fill the bottom of your pot with a 2-inch layer of crushed stone to improve drainage. Fill pot 1/3-full of potting soil. Score the roots of the Improved Meyer lemon tree to promote growth and bury it at the same depth it was planted in its previous pot. Layer with 2 inches of compost. Water well and place near a South facing window for the necessary sun exposure. 

Watering: Allow the soil to dry down to 2 inches between waterings. Never let your Improved Meyer lemon tree remain in standing water.

While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, citrus leaves love humidity.  Indoor Citrus will do best if misted daily especially when you are running your heat during cooler months.  You can also use a humidifier or fill your pot's saucer with rocks and add water; place your plant on the rocks ensuring the bottom of the pot is above the water line.

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.

Fertilization: It is also recommended to apply 2 to 3 inches of organic matter under the canopy of the tree to conserve moisture. An Improved Meyer lemon tree must be fertilized every four to five weeks from February to August to ensure a healthy grow cycle and be pruned every one or two years to keep them within bounds and easy to pick.

Weed Control: Remove competing weeds that grow near the ground-planted tree. Improved Meyer lemon tree, as a grafted tree, produces many suckers from the base, particularly in containerized trees. Remove suckers regularly by breaking or cutting.

Pests and Disease: Your Improved Meyer lemon tree will not like frost. You should protect your lemon tree from frost if temperatures drop below 30 degrees F. You should also take care to monitor your Improved Meyer lemon tree for pests, although pests are often harmless. Identifying pests can help you learn what is in your garden, and it may help you determine whether any of your other trees or plants are at risk. Insecticides can destroy natural parasites and do more harm than good to your lemon trees and to other members of your garden. You should only use them when needed.

Pruning: Prune as needed to maintain your lemon tree's shape. Clip off any branches that are too long. Remove branches growing toward the trunk of the tree instead of away from it. This will maintain airflow between the branches.

Pollination: The Improved Meyer lemon tree is self-fruitful, which is the horticulturists' way of saying "self pollinator." This means that you do not need to plant pollinating citrus trees near your Improved Meyer lemon tree to ensure you get a lemon crop.

I received the Meyer Lemon tree.and need to replant it in a bigger pot. what potting soil should i use?Can i use miragle grow when i water ?
sakina c on Jun 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Meyer Lemons Trees enjoy sandy, well drained, moist soil. Miracle Grow would be fine.
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.
Do you need 2 trees so they pollinate and grow fruit?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Meyer lemon is a self fertile, and can make lemons without a pollinating tree. However, having more than one tree greatly improves the amount of lemons that you'll get.
When do you fertilize the Myers lemon tree?my Myer lemon tree has flowers on it do I fertelize
Adam b on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is recommended to apply 2 to 3 inches of organic matter under the canopy of the tree to conserve moisture. An Improved Meyer lemon tree must be fertilized every four to six weeks from February to August to ensure a healthy grow cycle and be pruned every one or two years to keep them within bounds and easy to pick.
Is it organic? Are there any aspects of this Improved Meyer Lemon Tree that have GMO or pesticidal components introduced to its DNA?
Rick M on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All of our products are Non-Gmo, but to comply with USDA phytosanitary regulations, we are required to apply a mild chemical treatment to all trees shipped over state lines. This treatment is required to prevent the spread of potentially devastating pathogens from one state to another and is mandatory for all growers. Once your trees arrive, you can use all natural and organic growing techniques to grow organic fruit.
what s difference between Meyer lemon tree and 'improved" Meyer lemon tree. which one do you sell @your company?
blue angels on Sep 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We sell the Improved Meyer Lemon tree which is more disease resistant than the Meyer Lemon tree.
Is there a better time to plant?
Susan G on Aug 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If you're keeping these trees indoors you can plant them at any time of the year. If you're planting them outdoors it's best to plant them in the early spring or fall when temperatures aren't too hot or cold.
After adding a citrus fertilizer to my potted Meyer Lemon Tree that I keep indoors, a few days later I noticed tiny little flies flying around and landing on the potting mix. Is this common and is there a safe pesticide or spray that I can use?
Andrea M on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would dust the plant and soil with human grade diatomaceous earth. It is safe to eat, will not harm pets or people so the fruit can be consumed after applying. DE is natural and consists of dried single celled sea creatures. These tiny dried creatures pierce the bodies of insects and they dehydrate and die.
Can I keep lemon tree inside the house?
Tam N on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, absolutely--we have had our lemon tree inside since we first bought it three years ago. We have a very large pot on a wheeled tray to make it easier to move around when we need to. It needs a bright sunny window and when the weather is beautiful we take it out to the sunporch occasionally, to soak up the sun.
I have read a lot of places online that you should cut off branches with thorns on lemon trees? Is that true or should I let the thorn branches stay on my tree?
caitlynk on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Most branches can grow thorns; you should not cut them off simply for them having thorns. You may, however, elect to trim the thorns themselves. I use a set of fingernail clippers, this provides pinching instead of shearing, to close off the veins in the wood itself.
Is your Meyer Lemon tree organic or does it have insecticide or other chemicals applied to it?

BEST ANSWER: To comply with USDA phytosanitary regulations, we are required to apply a mild chemical treatment to all trees shipped over state lines. This treatment is required to prevent the spread of potentially devastating pathogens from one state to another and is mandatory for all growers. Once your trees arrive, you can use all natural and organic growing techniques to grow organic fruit.
once the lemon tree has blossomed and you start to see the little lemons, what do I do next?
Pamela B on Aug 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The young tree can produce lots of flowers and begin making tiny lemons. But commonly would not have enough strength to hold these tiny fruits. It is NORMAL and tells you that the tree will do much better next year. (they say you might wait for 2 to 3 years before the young tree matures and can hold its fruits until they ripen)

Just make sure that it grows healthy dark green, shiny leafage. Every tree needs your thoughtful care from the start, just make sure it has enough water (not too much though), sunshine and your love :)))

There is some special soil for sale in a nursery exclusively for Citrus trees, you can use it but very moderately. Lemons do NOT like mulch.

Please do not expose your lemon tree to super heat - move the pot into some LIGHT shade then.

Whether you plant your tree in a pot or in the ground please make sure it is not exposed to exreme weather.

I have my first 5 green lemons growing into medium size lemons right now :) After 2 years since I purchased it !! I'm in very hot, dry and windy Nevada, and my lovely Lemon tree likes to be outside, protrected by a half shade porch, some portion of the roof and 2 walls. The Very Best Luck!!

How often should you water a meyer lemon tree?
Shannon M on Aug 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have mine in a pot so I water it weekly. I give it about 2 cups once a week, and half of that in the winter. Hope that helps. I also have a grape fruit tree as well as a key lime and I do the same for them.
I brought my tree in from the cold this winter and it has lost all of its leaves and some of the limbs are dying. I've got it in the sunniest place in my house which granted is still not the best...so what can I do to save my tree before it dies?
Kim P on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is probably just stressed from the move indoors, which is perfectly normal.

When you say patio, does that mean it needs to be enclosed or is an outside porch in Zone 7 (it definitely gets cold and snows) all right to grow the tree?
Susan T on May 23, 2015

We are at zone 8. Do we need to move lemon plants into the house in the winter ?
Mimi p on Apr 6, 2018

Brought my lemon tree in for winter it lost all of its leaves what can I do to get in back on track?
Patsy T on Jan 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Normal for the dry winter months, spraying daily with bottled water helps a lot. (Bottled or non chlorinated) they will grow back come spring. If you have good light and warm temps they recover quicker. I'm in NH and they can take a while so be patient. Also a small humidifier near your tree is good for the winter months. Keep them is a South West window. Re-pot or feed before returning them outside and don't let them have full on sun right away. Let the acclimate for a week or 2.
Do these trees go through a dormant period?
Barb D on Apr 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not a tree expert but I'd say no. It stays green all year round, fruiting in the winter. I keep it indoors and it loses a few leaves in the winter. It now just started to bud flowers. I'm guessing this is when it pollinates. I've had the tree for 2.5 years and couldn't be happier.
my lemon tree is losing leaves and some leaves are curled up any idea what the cause is? Tree is not overwatered it is in a sunny warm indoor location
Alex123 on Jan 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like normal transition stress. Here are some tips. Be sure it is completely dried out before watering. If humidity is low in the house, mist it daily. If it isn't getting bright sun from a window or glass door be sure to supplement with a plant light. Be sure it isn't in a heat or cold draft from a vent. My favorite fertilizer is Espoma Citrus-Tone. It's organic and perfectly balanced.
When to feed?
Diane V on Nov 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is recommended to apply 2 to 3 inches of organic matter under the canopy of the tree to conserve moisture. An Improved Meyer lemon tree must be fertilized every four to six weeks from February to August to ensure a healthy grow cycle and be pruned every one or two years to keep them within bounds and easy to pick.
Can I make Meyer lemon to flower it had dozen but all fell off can I make my Meyer lemon to flower in Jan.?
Christine H on Jan 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ours fell off too; however, they are supposed to flower twice a year. Last year, our first year, we got 7 lemons.
My lemon tree has great news growth but it's losing some of its older leaves I brought it inside but it's still losing leaves can you help me?
Lacey L on Jul 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Losing leaves after being transitioned indoors is completely normal. Also if it is producing fruit it will drop leaves as well. Leaf drop is a defense mechanism that allows the plant to put all of its nutrients into the tree and the fruit. It will push out new leaves. As long as the tree is green it is healthy. John is correct that over watering can cause this to happen too.
when to plant Meyer Lemon Tree?
Johnny on Jun 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi! I never planted mine, because of where I lived, I kept it in a large pot and left it out on the deck (it LOVED that!) But would bring it inside once the cooler Temps would hit...took care of it like a baby and in return, gave great fruit! :)
P.S. the smell of the flowers before it produces any lemons is DELICIOUS!!!
I have my Meyers Lemon in my house. It has a light over it and sits in the corner, not a lot of air. Lately I have noticed what looks like a web connecting from the little stems to the branch What in your opinion do I need to do. I live in TX. in zone 8 and it is cold here right now so I am afraid to take it outside. HELP please. I got only one lemon off of it last year and it was soooo good. I would like to get some year. What do you recommend for the webs on the branches?
Doris P on Jan 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sounds like Spider Mites, if you check underneath the leaves very carefully with a magnifying glass, you would see the ting greenish brown mites. There are many commercial remedies, including organic. Check on Amazon or at a garden store. You can also Google home made remedies, I have use organic Neem oil with success, but be sure to cover every inch of the plant, especially under the leaves, and do again a week or so later to get any newly hatched mites.
I have the Meyer lemon tree. I have new branches growing from the main trunk. Knowing this a grafted tree on a different citrus tree is it advisable to trim off these new branches?
Rick1 on Apr 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You will see the bump in the trunk where the Meyer has been grafted on to root stock. I remove any growth below that graft point. You don't want the root stock branches to develop and take strength away from the Meyer.
