DWARF LEMON - MEYER

Lemon MeyerBotanical Name: Citrus limon
Description

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.

Question & Answer

Hello there, may i know whats the difference between The "Lemon Meyer Grafted" and the Dwarf Lemon - Meyer Grafted" , please let me know, i want to order one or two of them, thanks From:

The rootstock of the dwarf variety is a flying dragon which makes the size of the plant much smaller. This normal Lemon Meyer uses a rootstock that does not stunt the trees size and will grow 2-4m. The Dwarf Lemon Meyer will grow 1-2m. However the Lemon taste and Lemon size of the fruit are all exactly the same as they are both Meyer Lemons. #DwarfLemon753

I am living in northern Melbourne, Victoria & am wondering if this would survive on a quite sunny balcony in a pot? From: BRUNSWICK WEST VIC

The Eureka it is a large vigorous lemon and is likely to outgrow it pot. You would find that the dwarf meyer is perfect for pots and better suited to Melbournes climate.

Hello. I'm looking to buy a lot a lemon to plant in my front yard. Just wanted to know how tall it could potentially grow in the ground. Cheers! From: WISHART QLD

We don't sell Lots of Lemon. It is a Meyer Lemon selection which grows about 1-2mts. We do grow the standard Meyer Lemon and the Dwarf Meyer Lemon they grow about 2-3mts and 1-2mts respectively #LemonMeyer757 #DwarfLemon753

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

Dwarf Lemon - Meyer (Grafted) 8/10

Brenton's Edible Fruits
Update: 1552 days 21hrs

Comments: -

September 2014: Planted December 2013.  It was uprooted by the dogs but has survived well.  Is flowering (though I remove them) and appears to have some new growth coming on.  New soil and compost with plenty of mulch.

November 2014: This has been attacked by aphids quite badly but I was reasonably quick to get onto it.  Monitoring this on a near daily basis to ensure it doesn't happen again.  This has produced the least amount of growth of the plants in the soil, but has flowered particularly heavily.  Flowers are still being removed.  A bit of a disappointment this season after it grew so well last season (before being uprooted).  Hopefully it will establish itself again and take off - it has had a bit of a rough time between pets and pests.

February 2015: This plant has come back reasonably strongly since changing fertiliser.  It has an abundance of new growth and looks strong and healthy.  Very happy with the returns on this since it has re-established itself.  Growth has meant this plant has saved itself from the compost bin!

Have been experimenting with different fertilisers (both organic and otherwise).  Have found that Searles Fruit & Citrus Food works quite well as a base, with Yates Citrus Liquid plant food.  Quite hesitent to purchase liquid fertilser at the start but very happy with the result.  Have been some pest issues but the impact has been quite minor and simple to manage.

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.

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 fruit

March 2015. The tree has gone though another flowering and is setting fruit at the moment. This was the habit of the one we had at our other home.. flower spring and autum, setting fruit each time. April 2015: A lot of fruit has now set and another crop of flowers has appeared.

June 2016. This year the tree has been a disappointment to me. It flowerd heavily percent less than a handful of fruit. It seemed to suffer last winter, however it seems now that it is slowly recovering from whatever was giving it problems. There is now a small flowering taking place now

Dec 2017 Huge crop this year for  such a small tree

Comments: - 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?

First Fruited: 4 Months from Purchase in Pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pest Control: recently been attacked by scale i've been removing as much as i can see by hand and using pest oil to rid them but it's been a tough process, losing a lot of leaves to yellowing but it's bouncing back ok.

Going great guns! Purchased about April 2015. 

I water almost daily depending on weather and fertlise about every 6 to 8 weeks. When fruiting is over I will be repotting into a 75 litre planter bag as I have with all other citrus and blueberries. 

Seems to be going well as it has about 12-14 fruit on it but it could do with some more room and better quality medium that provides better drainage. I've found that a good mix of pine bark, coir peat and perlite works wonders so the lemon will be getting that too when fruiting is finished as well as a prune.
