DWARF LEMONADE

LemonadeBotanical Name: Citrus limon x reticulata
Description

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.

Question & Answer

How do you know when the fruit is ripe, I have a tree that is full of fruit but all green at the moment. From: PERTH WA

Lemonade fruit is ripe when it comes easily off the tree. Grasp the fruit in your hand and if it feels heavy and comes away with a gentle twist, it's ripe! The fruit will also soften ever so slightly just when it's ripe. #DwarfLemonade737 #LemonadeTree736

Dwarf Lemonade (Grafted)

Rusticular's Edible Fruits
Update: 342 days 15hrs

Comments: - Slow growth at first, straggly, fruit turns to orange when ripe but can be eaten green skinned. Closer in flavour to orange than lemon when orange skinned. Straggly untidy tree, probably due to the dwarfing stock. Prone to some kind of brown rust which dessicates the skin, Fuit becomes dry.

Fruiting Months January, February, September, October, November, December

Height 1 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Fruit Harvest: 3 kilograms per Year

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pruned By: 10% in Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Citrus

When I Fertilise: Winter and Spring

Pest Control: Organic oil for leaf miner. Heavy infestation of cottony cushion scale 2012, used Confidore without much success.  Now trying high pressure water, seems to work better.

Organic Status:Pesticides Used

Dwarf Lemonade (Grafted) 9/10

Townfarm1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3310 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Still only a young tree.  Gets a fair bit of wind and salt air.  A bit leggy and plan to prune back this year to increase density a bit.  Very happy.  About half a dozen fruit last season but quite a few more on tree now.  Seems to be very hardy - no pests at this stage.

Has plenty of fruit on it and am having trouble deciding when to prune back to stop it getting too leggy - just keeps flowering and fruiting!!

Still fruiting but still leggy.  Might have to cut it back to encourage it to fill out.

Height 4 Feet

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Manuary, Blood and Bone, compost, seaweed on foliage

Pest Control:

None at this point.

Organic Status:Organic

Question:

How do I get around the fact that the tree keeps flowering and doesn't give me a change to clip it back so it doesn't get too leggy?  By the time the fruit has ripened, there are more flowers/ baby fruit on it.

Planted May 2011 as part of a citrus hedge along the fence line.

I didn't follow the instructions and cut the top 3rd off the plant when planting. Seems to have resulted in the plant dropping must of its leaves. It has since sprung back with regular watering and feeding.

Picture taken Feb 3rd 2012. Lemonade is the plant on the far left.

Dwarf Lemonade (Grafted) 4/10

Peter1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2943 days 10hrs

Comments: -

I like lemonade fruit as it has a more sweet flesh than lemons in general and makes a good refreshing drink when cold. Many years ago I remember purchasing this fruit at a selected fruit and vegie shop at Clayfield in Qld. I have never seen this fruit anywhere else except at Fruit World in NSW.

 

Fruiting Months September and October

Planted: 2010

Growing: In a Pot

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Complete Citrus Feed and slow release fertiliser. (Searles)

When I Fertilise: When Fruiting and Yearly

Pest Control:

White oil

Question:

I like to know why the flowers are not staying on. I've provided the plant with correct fertlizer, it's in a pot but I'm contemplating placing in the ground with real soil but not sure when to do this.

Will I need to place some type of support in the ground. i.e. a stick to help the plant support itself?

Comments: - Would be interesting in growing one of these in a large pot on the deck or in the yard, I don't think I have the room in the yard to provide it with enough light so maybe a half wine barrel might do
