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.

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
