Juicy Pink Lemons in Compact Bush Form
Why Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Bushes?
Looking for the most unique citrus tree on the market? The Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon's green-and-yellow striped skin and striking pink flesh will make a statement. As the fruit matures, it transforms again, into a yellow-skinned lemon flecked with pink.
Benefits for citrus lovers include:
- It's adaptable to many different soils and conditions
- It's pest- and disease-resistant
- It's drought-tolerant
Because of its aromatic citrus and sophisticated look, the Pink Variegated Lemon Bush is one of the most popular citrus varieties grown at home. One of the biggest benefits? It can grow to maturity and start producing fruit in just one year.
This bush is an even smaller version of the Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Tree - its compact size makes it a perfect choice for landscapes or container growing.
Plus, it can even grow inside in colder climates. As long it has sunlight for most of the day, the Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Bush can thrive when potted indoors. Just find a sunny spot (preferably a south-facing window) and supplement with a grow light if necessary.
If you live in a climate with cold winters but mild spring and summers, you can move the plant to a patio or backyard in the warmer months. Just remember - your Pink Variegated Lemon Bush will need to be moved back inside when temperatures drops.
The Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Bush can add tropical flair indoors and out with its aromatic fruit, unique foliage and tangy fruit. It's great for patios and decks, sunny kitchens or entryways, offices and more.

Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Bush Pollination
Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Bushs are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Bush will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight - 6-8 hours per day is best. Pink Variegated Eureka Lemons can tolerate some shade but thrive in full sun.
Whether you plant in a container or in the ground, ensure you also have well-drained soil.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system. Place the tree in the hole and backfill it, tamping the soil down as you backfill the hole to cut back on any pockets from forming.
If you're planting in a container, select a container that's about twice the width of your plant's shipped container. Choose a container that's easy to move (one with casters is a great option) if you're planning to move your Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon indoors in the winter. Place your potted Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon in a sunny spot inside or on your patio, depending on the season.
After planting, give your bush a deep watering for about 5 minutes. Mulching around planted bushes will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the winter.
2. Watering: Water once or twice weekly until your Pink Variegated Lemon Tree is established. After it's established, allow the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again.
For potted Pink Variegated Lemon bushes, stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If you feel moisture, hold off on watering. When you do water, stop once you see it draining from the drainage holes at the base.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Variegated Tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer, like the one included in our Citrus Care Kit, once every six weeks. During the fall and winter season, fertilize once every 2 to 3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit and has got a few years on it, you can skip cold season fertilization.
4. Pruning: Make 45-degree angle cuts to remove dead or crossing limbs and to thin out the bush as needed. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree. Remove suckers as they form and grow from the base. Pruning can be done at any time of the year, except in winter for Pink Variegated Lemon bushes planted in the ground.
5. Pollination: The Pink Variegated Lemon is self-fertile, but you can pollinate your indoor trees by hand, taking 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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Great little lemon bush...
The bush arrived in excellent condition...not even looking like a lemon 'tree'/bush that it is. It was promptly planted in its container planter in consideration for its transfer into our heated garage this coming winter. This lemon bush makes five different citrus plants already on hand and doing well. Each is planted in a large 18"-21" container, with low growth flowers and other plants surrounding the base of each tree. Presently, everything looks like a jungle with all the tropical trees and garden plants.
Happy Little Baby Bush
I'm quite pleased with the little Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Bush that I ordered. I can tell that the cutting/plant was well cared for and healthy before shipping and it arrived very well packaged to my doorstep. Because I ordered a small plant, it's a young cutting and I'm currently nursing it along, but so far it's a happy little baby lemon bush. There won't be any fruit this year--or at least, I don't expect there to be any--but I think that given time and care, this plant will be a healthy fixture around my home and yard (I'm zone 7, so it'll over-winter indoors) for years to come. I may even order another so that it has a friend. :-)
Love the plant. Still real young and needs a bit of TLC then I think it will be good for future fruiting. Time will tell.
