Product Description

All-In-One Citrus for Every Home & Patio

Why Meyer Lemon Trees?

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

• Our Meyer Lemon Trees are grafted to established citrus tree rootstock 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.

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 Trees ready to fruit as soon as the first year.

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.

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 waterline.

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: Fertilize regularly with a high-nitrogen blend 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 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.

Nice tree

I have only had the tree for about two weeks, so can't say too much about it except this - it was really healthy and is still living and has grown. Fast Growing Trees' packaging is about as good as it gets - instructions were included with the tree on planting and care. If you are an experienced gardener or a newbie, I think you would like this tree.

Healthy looking tree!

So far so good. I ordered the 4-5 ft trees. Ones already has 5 lemons growing while the other does not. I potted and watered and both are healthy and growing. Packaged very well on delivery.

Great tree!

My wife and I are very happy with our 4-5ft Meyer lemon tree. Tree arrived packaged well and it already had two tiny lemons on it. We planted in citrus soil and placed it on a tray with rocks for optimal draining. We live in a high rise with a sunny window and the tree seems happy so far.! Looking forward to more growth and lemons.
