Product Description

Grow Two Citrus Favorites at Home!

From lemonade to key lime pie and more - this pack will help you get started with your very own citrus orchard!

Our Meyer Lemon + Key Lime Tree Pack comes with one 1-2 foot Meyer Lemon Tree and one 1-2 foot Key Lime Tree - perfect for backyard gardens in warmer climates, or as a house or patio plant in cooler climates.

No matter where you plant them, you’ll enjoy the flavors of bright, tart Key Lime and sweet, tangy Meyer Lemon (a cross between a lemon and an orange), grown at home. And although both of these trees are self-pollinating, this two-in-one pack will give you twice the pollinator power, for an even bigger fruit yield!

The best part? These trees are as beautiful as they are functional. Grown in a tall, elegant tree form, both the Meyer Lemon and Key Lime Trees deliver glossy, deep-green foliage and sweet-scented spring blooms that will turn your home or garden into a citrus oasis.

New to growing citrus? We’ve got you covered. Add on our Citrus Tree Care Kit to ensure your Meyer Lemon and Key Lime Trees grow happy and healthy in your home. It comes with a double dose of citrus fertilizer, micronutrients, natural insecticide and more - with easy, step-by-step instructions.

These two-in-one citrus packs won’t last long. Get yours today!

Pollination Info

Meyer Lemon + Key Lime Tree Pack Pollination

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

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Both the Meyer Lemon and Key Lime will grow best when planted in a warm, sunny spot with well-draining soil. Six hours (or more) of direct sun is best.

If you're planting in containers, select pots that are 1 to 2 pot sizes larger than your shipped containers (one for each plant). Fill the bottom of your pot with a 2-inch layer of crushed stone to improve drainage. Center your tree, fill with soil, water well, and place near a south-facing window.

Note: The leaves of the Meyer Lemon can be toxic to pets.

2. Watering: Allow the soil to dry down to 2 inches between waterings.

While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, citrus leaves love humidity. Indoor citrus trees 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 waterline.

3. Pollination: Both the Meyer Lemon and Key Lime are self-fertile, so you'll get fruit with just one plant. You'll get a greater fruit yield the more trees you plant. Our two-in-one Meyer Lemon and Key Lime Pack provides double the pollination power!

4. Fertilizing: Fertilize regularly with a high-nitrogen blend (like you'll find in our Citrus Tree Care Kit) each month between April and September.

FGT Tip: Yellowing leaves may indicate the need for more fertilizer.

5. Pruning: Prune as needed to maintain your Meyer Lemon and Key Lime trees' shape. Clip off any branches that are too long. Remove branches growing toward the trunk of the bush instead of away from it. This will maintain airflow between the branches.

Questions & Answers

Why Meyer Lemon Bushes?

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

As you know, the fruit available at your grocery store is not chosen for flavor but rather shelf life. 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 Meyer’s thin skin is perfect for home chefs that want tantalizingly fresh fruit right off the branch! 

Harvesting Meyer Lemons at Home

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

• Our Meyer Lemon Bushes are greenhouse-grown. We control how much light, heat, and water the bushes receive to ensure you get the best bush imaginable. Many bushes that we ship to customers already have fruit on them!
• Our Meyer Lemon Bushes are grown in their existing pots. Unlike the violent process of digging a bush out of the ground, our bushes are nurtured to full potential without disrupting the roots, so you receive the happiest and healthiest bush available.

Who is Fast Growing Trees?

We are the largest mail-order nursery in the country, shipping bigger and better trees directly to your door.

So, when you order from Fast Growing Trees, you are getting well-rooted, better-branched Meyer Lemon Bushes ready to fruit as soon as the first year.

Planting the Meyer Lemon Bush

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

If you're planting in a container, select one that is 1 to 2 pot sizes larger than what it initially arrived. Fill the bottom of your pot with a 2-inch layer of crushed stone to improve drainage. Then, fill with soil, 2 inches of compost, water well, and place near a south-facing window.

When Do I Water My Meyer Lemon Bush?

Allow the soil to dry down to 2 inches between waterings.

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 waterline.

How I Fertilize Meyer Lemon Bushes?

Fertilize regularly with a high nitrogen blend each month between April and September.

FGT Tip: Yellowing leaves may indicate the need for more fertilizer.

How Do I Prune a Meyer Lemon Bush?

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

How to Pollinate Meyer Lemon Bushes

For indoor plants, simply take a small, dry, fine-tipped paintbrush 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.
