DWARF LEMON - MEYER Citrus limon
This popular variety of 'lemon' is not a true lemon but likely to be a natural hybrid between a lemon and an orange. The lower acidity and reduced bitterness makes it one of the most widely grown home-garden varieties. Very hardy and prolific. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Question & Answer
My mother is 88 years old and lives in Maryborough QLD and asks will I live to see it produce fruit so what would you suggest as fast growing lemon would it be the grafted dwarf lemon? From: Evatt ACT
We recommend that you remove all the flowers and fruit from your young tree for the first two years to allow your tree to establish into a strong healthy plant before letting the fruit mature as otherwise it will put all its energy into the fruit, you want a young tree to put its energy into roots and shoots for the first two years. #DwarfLemon753
Hi , I was looking to buy a eureka lemon tree to grow in a pot? Is it possible or do I have to buy a dwarf variety? Do you guys ever produce dwarf eureka lemon trees? From: PENSHURST NSW
Yes you can grow them in a pot. It will stay small because of root restriction #LemonEureka754 We do not sell them as a dwarf variety but we do sell the #DwarfLemon753
