Fruit Trees > Citrus Trees > Lemon Tree > Dwarf Lemon - Meyer
This popular lemon is not a true lemon but likely to be a natural hybrid between a lemon and an orange. The lower acidity and reduced sourness makes it one of the most widely grown lemons for the home-garden. Very hardy and prolific. The fruits are deep orange-yellow in colour with thin skin and they are very juicy, making them perfect for use in dressings and marinades. The meyer is low in pectin. 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.
Other Names: Citrus myer

Has delicious fruit - was here when we moved in. I've tried an experiment wtih the size of the tree and sectioned it off into quarters. I pruned one quarter almost skeletonised, one pruned heavily, one lightly and one not at all. It's worked really wel...

Everyone has to have a lemon tree in their garden surely :) this is the dwarf lemonicious, it's been a trial and error as i'm new to gardening so some leaves have been curling inwards which may mean i need to adjust the nutrients in the soil?

This tree is a Lotsa Lemons and produces plentiful fruit. It%u2019s a tough low maintenance plant that I keep in a 50L pot.

Actually no idea what kind of lemon. My stepdad keeps cutting it and the persimim back, he wants them gone but they're so hardy you can cut them down to the ground and they'll just pop back up. No idea when it was planted, it, the mango, the persimim, ...

I love the pleasant open shape of my Myer Lemon. My research revealed to me recently that the Lemonicious has only a very short fruiting time whereas the Meyer fruits faithfully for most the year and the Eureka throughout the year....an ideal choice if...

We have had Myer lemons for many years and have found them to be a much valued addition to the garden and kitchen, easy to take care of and incredibly productive. Their only issue is their susceptibility to fruit fly which can be beaten by bagging the ...

Like lemons...Had negleted this one in a pot - therefore failure to thrive. Have just recently transplanted to ground and new shoots are appearing... will update later.

Casterton, Vic, Aus

Although this was bought as a dwarf meyer (not from Daleys), I think it is too sour to be a Meyer. It is on its own roots and is only 1m tall but bears heavily. It is a great fruit tree.

ST LUCIA, QLD, Australia

I love the tree so far and we haven't even got any fruit from it yet! It does give us beautiful flowers that scent our patio, and there are some lemons growing on it now that should be ripe in a few months.
