Why Meyer Lemon Trees?

Meyer Lemons are different from the small, tart and acidic lemons at your grocery store because the fruit is literally a cross between traditional sour lemons and sweet oranges – yes, you get both sweet and savory flavors from each squeeze of this world-beating fruit! 

As you know, the fruit available at your grocery store is not chosen for flavor but rather shelf life – that is why the lemons available to you are small with very thick skin. Meyer Lemons are not available in grocery stores because the fruit skin is so wonderfully thin that it would bruise while riding in a crate – however, the thin skin is perfect for home chefs that want tantalizingly fresh fruit right off the branch! The thin skin allows the citrus juices to develop fully, making it the perfect raw fruit for juices, desserts and flavoring.

Can I grow it? YES YOU CAN! The Meyer Lemon Tree has remarkable cold and heat tolerance so anyone in the country can grow it – if your winters get cold, simply bring your Meyer Lemon Tree indoors (or the garage) for the winter. Our trees max out at around 8 feet so you don’t have to worry about them out-growing your space. And when you bring it indoors, you can enjoy the jasmine-citrus fragrance throughout those long winter months.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.  

Place your order NOW and have your own Meyer Lemon Tree delivered right to your door.

Looking for that unique gift? Look no further! It’s the gift that truly keeps on giving – a memorable keepsake to commemorate holidays, housewarmings, birthdays, bereavements – this tree will produce fruit for decades and every time someone picks a lemon they will think of you!

Why is Better

Are all Meyer Lemon Trees equal? No! A Meyer Lemon Tree from Fast Growing Trees is different:

• Our Meyer Lemon Trees are grafted to established citrus tree root stock which means they grow twice as fast, produce fruit almost immediately, and are guaranteed to produce “true” Meyer Lemons (unlike trees grown from seed).

• Our Meyer Lemon Trees are greenhouse-grown. We control how much light, heat and water the trees receive to ensure you get the best tree imaginable- many trees that we ship to customers already have fruit on them!

• Our Meyer Lemon Trees are grown in their existing pots. Unlike the violent process of digging a tree out of the ground, our trees are nurtured to full potential without disrupting the roots so you receive the happiest and healthiest tree available.

• Fast Growing Trees only sells the “Improved” Meyer Lemon variety – the only cultivar that has proven disease-resistant capabilities.

You’ve heard the chatter, now it’s time to try for yourself – this is the tree that so many home chefs have been successful with – start enjoying that sweet fruit immediately and order yours today!

Meyer Lemon for Louisiana
I love it. It is growing nicely. It has many flowers which the bees seem to enjoy. I see very small limes growing where the flowers fell off. I do put it in the garage because of the cold weather and move it out on sunny days. I plan on planting in the spring, but could not resist buying now.

So Happy With My Meyer Lemon Trees
So pleased with my Meyer Lemon tree. Recieved as a gift Christmas 2017. It arrived in beautiful condition.....5 feet tall and lush leaves. I followed yor instructions exactly, and by Christmas 2018 I had a full crop of large lemons. Gave my daughter one of these this Christmas. I keep my tree inside in a morning sun window. Tried it outside diring the summer, but it was extremely unhappy with the heat in the South. I am going to get another citrus from you...probably a lime. And then a Japanese Maple
Perfect Lemons
Lush Leaves

This is a great review and beautiful images! Thank you so much for sharing. If you don't mind, we'd like to know a few specifics about your tree. How long have you had it? Do you take it outside in the warmer months? And do you fertilize it? We know what it takes to grow the tree, but we're really curious about what you've done personally. We look forward to hearing back from you! Thanks in advance. EDIT: We were able to locate your order! We now see that you've had it since March!

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: Select a container 1-2 pot sizes larger than what it initially arrived in to allow the Meyer lemon tree's 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 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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?
Marc M on Apr 14, 2017
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.
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
BEST ANSWER: I live in Maryland, zone 7. You must bring the plant inside in the winter time. Our winters are too cold to have it outside all year round.
can I plant the Meyer Lemon Tree in the ground instead of keeping it in a pot?
Lisa E on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Growing Zones: 4-11 patio / 8-11 outdoors
(hardy down to 20℉)
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 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.
Can I use Meyer lemons in recipes that call for lemons?
Chattasanree on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. they have an amazing taste
My Meyer tree has lemons the size of a golf ball but they are green they have been green for about two months why is that?
Ida Z on Jul 12, 2016

Can I grow Meyer lemon in pot under 125 watt CFL bulb.all yr.?
Christine H on Feb 12, 2016
do the fruit have seeds?
Rodney k on Feb 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine does. They are small and maybe 2 seeds per lemon I have enjoyed mine.
We are at zone 8. Do we need to move lemon plants into the house in the winter ?
Mimi p on Apr 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would. You will see freezing temps in growing zone 8 which would damage the tree. Lemons need high humidity and lots of sun
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

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?

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.

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?

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.
