We have fruit from it.  Good juice.  We have shade cloth guards around all our trees due to the wind. This little lemon grows to the height of the shade guard and then stops.  Poor thing - every time it pokes a little branch up into the wind it gets...

Didn't survive oct13 firesIt took forever to grow - then all of a sudden it took off - may have had something to do with my hose starting to leak. Fruit is massive & lovely taste - makes the best lemon cordial.

I have high hopes for this tree, Shannon and i planted it in the front yard so passers by can pick the fruit. This tree is from Daleys and is on sour orange rootstock, which hopefully will increase its ability to handle the salinity in grey water and t...

Don Burkes said that every garden needs a lemon (or was it manderine?). I heard this was similar to the 'Lotsa Lemon' and that is a productive little bush. It looks very healthy and has lots of blossums right now.

Great tree, good producer.Probably got about 40 lemons last season, new growth and flowers coming through now.Similar output to last year, has grown slightly.  Much more receptive to pests than my lime.

I got my Eurika tree as people told me it would not grow in cold climates. Guess what? It grew beautifully. It is now my biggest citrus tree and I prune it severely.I love the fruit. They remind me of the lemons in Europe.

Placing a wormfarm underneath the lemon has resulted in an abundance of Lemons.Requires no watering.

Fantastic tree, constantly producing fruit. The fruit does have a very thick skin, but inside the juice content is high. Foliar feed regularly with seaweed and fish emulsion.

First year in...needs flowers removed. Easy to grow.Powering along Aug 2010: flowering, fruiting - doing what it does.It has a more intense lemon flavour than the Meyer and better for that lemon "tang" in cooking.

Lemon - Eureka

I wouldn't recommend Eureka for a suburban back yard as grows very large and fruits prolifically. A Lemonade variety is a better choice for a sweet fruit which your kids will enjoy. The problem is digging the old rootstock out to replant a new fruit tree!

Lemon - Eureka

I have few gum trees. Nothing I can grow under neath. I have planted a lemon and lime tree and they are doing well. When the flower comes put potash on the plant once a month for three months, and put Thrive on the leaves every two weeks for two months.
