Product Description

The All-In-One Citrus Tree for Every Home and Patio

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 Fast-Growing-Trees.com 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!

Pollination Info

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.

This tree was delivered to my parents in just about perfect condition. The leaves were vibrant green and healthy! It sits on their porch and they love it!

Yet another Horrible experience.

Well we thought after the last order issue we would give this another try. Our initial order was refunded and we felt it was worth a shot. So Wrong! I don’t know what the other reviews are talking about but the shipping was not at all fast. They outsource from another nursery and your sort of left is the dark for over a week. They never responded to email communication and we only received the root booster. No trees and at this point we have canceled the order but are having to wait till next week to hear about the refund because No one works here on the weekends.... yea definitely never purchasing from here again.

We're so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience! Due to agricultural restrictions that some states have, we are not able to ship citrus trees into their states so we have to have our sister nurseries in that state ship the trees for us. Shipping dates are indicated on the website when the trees are selected. We apologize for the confusion and for any inconvenience this has caused.

Pleasantly surprised!

I received my Meyer lemon tree today and I was pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of the tree. It was well packed and I received it the day after it was shipped. I also have a Meyer lemon tree from Walmart about the same age, but the one received today was much better quality. The leaves are much bigger and were nice and shiny whereas the other one has much smaller leaves with some yellowing. The tree was also closer to 4 ft tall! Excited for when it will start bearing fruit.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: 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.

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.

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 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.

3. Pollination: 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.

4. Fertilizing: 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.

5. 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.
