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 o... Read More

Dwarf Lime - Tahitian


The small to medium fruit is pale lemon-yellow with smooth thin skin. The flesh is a translucent pale green, tender and juicy with a true acid lime flavour. It is best to pick the fruit green as it can suffer from rot if left to ripen on the tree.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.

Dwarf Mandarin - Imperial


A proven early variety that is still very popular today. Excellent colour and flavour; the skin is smooth, glossy, thin and easy to peel. Older trees may develop a biennial bearing habit. Dwarf trees grow to about 2m tall.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$29.00 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.

Dwarf Orange - Cara Cara


This variety was discovered in Venezuela in 1976. It is smaller than many other navel selections but has pink flesh similar to Star Ruby grapefruit.

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.

Dwarf Orange - Washington Navel

$39.00 ($39.00-$79.00 choose a size)

The oldest and most popular navel grown in Australia. Has excellent skin colour and taste, and usually produces round fruit. Is inclined to drop fruit and split in some climates.

Planted out 1 day after arrival. Fair bit of transplant shock, dropped pretty much all its leaves. It's come good now though, plenty of new shoots and flowers so all good.

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?

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, ...

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 ...

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.

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.
