Weve got a really prolific fruiter and eat them as is but mostly juice them and dilute with about 2/3 water, way better than fizzy drinks and we freeze any excess. | Heath - Toowoomba, QLD 12-May-2007

It just fruits endlessly, I can use it instead of Limes or Lemons, with fish whenever I want it I can just go pick one as needed as it is usually in fruit, drinks for kids in summer, desserts and varied meat dishes etc, and all my friends think I have a huge green thumb when I give them some of my lovely big juicy fruit - with no fuss or effort on my part.  A great addition.

The leaves will go a bit yellow over winter as it is too cold for them to be able to absorb the things they need from the soil (even if they are there).

BJ1's Edible Fruits

Planted in a raised bed and pruned to a standard shape the tree seems to be coping with WA soils and summers. It is flowering like crazy and I am pinching the flowers off because it is very young - but clearly very keen to grow and fruit. The leaves are going yellow - so I have tried epsom salts to provide extra magnesium. I've also added some trace elements (including iron). It is healthy but it just doesn't seem happy or as bushy as the orange tree. Additional water is helping.

I re-dug the plant, replaced the local soil and replanted to provide better nutrition. This has helped, but the tree almost looks as if it is being attached by something as som tips are dying and leaves appear to be trying to grow back ... but no inspection has revealed any pest. It has only grown 50cm since planting.

This tree was hit the hardest by every citrus pest - galls, aphids, sooty mould, bronze orange bug - and just didnt get going well. So it was pulled up and replaced with a Freemont mandarin, a much tougher and stronger plant and an amazing fruit.

----------

Always loved them as a kid, so throught would give it a try.

Is quite prone to attacks by grasshoppers (though not as much as lemon propper), so have to keep on top of them if I want to have it lush and green like my lime trees.

Growing very well so far though.

3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1110 days 19hrs

Comments: -

I have never sampled a lemonade fruit but have wanted one for many years - the power of a name I suspect! From what I understand, this fruit is a hybrid of unknown parentage which has resulted in a sweet tasting lemon. I am hoping the fruit will become valuable for summer drinks and just for the pleasure of novelty in the garden.

This tree is part of our citrus hedge - a row of citrus trees planted along a north-west facing boundary fence at 1m spacing. The plan is for the trees to grow into an effective hedge that will be kept pruned to about 2m high. This particular tree is partially overshadowed by our house, and receives morning sun only. We prepared the planting area for the citrus hedge by incorporating "fruit & veg" soil mix into our existing sandy soil. Mushroom compost was worked into the bottom of the planting hole which was then backfilled with more "fruit and veg" mix. The area was lightly mulched with mushroom compost, leaving the area about 8cm around the trunk clear.

A sweet lemon sounded delicious, and on tasting, they really are! Very refreshing.  Tough little tree - I accidently knocked half its' roots off when planting; it got a bit sick but has made a full recovery.  (It didn't even drop the 3 young fruit it was carrying at the time, and they grew beautifully.)  Having second crop maturing now, 31 good size fruit.

Very sweet and juicy, but with lemon flavour. My daughter takes these to school to eat as fresh fruit.

Is scale a particular issue on this plant or is it just me ? 

I have had major issues with scale, can't seem to get rid of them even though they are under control on my other citrus fruit that were in pots next to this tree and I have tryed several methods that I know work to get rid of them. My hope is that now it's in the ground it's getting some extar nutrients it needs and will fight them a little bit itself.....otherwise it for the compost.
