Fertilize with diluted urine, especially if the fruit is small and brown inside

Tried but DIED.I still don't know what happened to my wee bahbee Bush Lemon. After my disappointment in my Finger Lime, a friend told me I had tried the wrong native citrus, and Bush Lemon was the way to go- like a normal lemon, but hardier in our heat...

This tree has grown huge during winter rain lots of beautiful fruit. Grew after fire. Good shade tree. Thought it was growing without being a rafted lemon tree.

Extremely hardy. It grows exceptionally well in the sunny and hot weather of Arizona. Make sure to give plenty of water and it will produce bountiful lemons in a couple of years.

Hardy tree, prolific fruiter, nice non-acid light lemon flavoured juice and lovely sweet rind.

Bush Lemon Tree

My bush lemon tree grows in the front yard and with a little fertiliser once or twice a year it has plenty of lemons almost year round. Don't have to do anything else as it seems to like Victorian weather.

It is tough, grown on its own rootstock this tree gets bigger than grafted varieties and has some drought tolerance, we get fruit all year, even during drought. The fruit is a good quality lemon for home use. I have seedlings for swap.

Used to eat them skin and all as a kid, took me ages to find one. Planted it in my front yard on the fence line to keep people out - love those thorns.
