Dwarf Lemonade

Citrus limon x reticulata


This delicious, sweet, juicy fruit tastes like lemonade and can be eaten as a fresh fruit straight off the tree. The tree often has thorns and bears several heavy crops each year. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf lemonade tree that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

It hasn't died yet but I am buying another from Daley's as I never have been happy with this one. It has looked spindly from the start. I will give this to a neighbour who can't afford to buy their own and hope they can nurse it back to health??
