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 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.

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!

    It is more like a

    It is more like a lemon branch-y twig, rather than a tree, but it was for my daughter, who is super pumped about having her own lemon tree. Hope it's a fast grower!

    Review, after two years

    I bought a 2-3ft lemon tree from here in spring of 2022. Since then I've learned a lot about growing them. The tree that they sent was not ready to produce fruit. Minimal bark, no branches. Just understand this if you buy the 2-3ft tree, it needs more time to grow. Some tips: * These trees hate drafts. Gas heat and any dryness in the winter will make them drop leaves. * Spider mites and all sorts of pests love to attack indoor citrus trees. I've had some luck with neem oil. * This website show pictures of lemon trees in pretty interiors, covered with lemons. But to actually get a good harvest like this, you'll have to bring your tree outdoors in the summer, or else good luck getting it to blossom. * They say at least 6 hours of direct sun, but you really need more than this. The tree will _survive_ with 6 hours of sun, but it will not thrive. * Don't be afraid to prune your tree if it grows too fast in the vertical direction. Don't let the plant get tall before it gets strong. You really want branching if you expect to have fruit.

    So happy!

    I received my lemon tree for Mothers Day and have to admit I was a bit intimidated that I would be able to make it thrive here in western PA. I repotted it in citrus soil and moved it next to my Monstera to share the humidifier. This week I looked and had LOTS of new growth all over it! I think it’s happy!
