Question & Answer

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, looking to grow a small lemon tree for the first time. Can you advise which variety for the climate of Brunswick Melbourne VIC. From:

The Eureka Lemon is a fantastic start it is your true bitter lemon but the meyer lemon is still sour but not as extreme these are the very common varieties and really a must have for every back yard. #LemonMeyer757 #LemonEureka754

Dear Sir / Madam Could you please tell me the approximate height of the most mature lime (Tahitian ok) and Eureka lemon trees that you have currently available, and also what size box I would need if I purchased one of each tree (I assume medium)? Thank you Simon From: LEICHHARDT NSW

The size of our Tahitian Lime and Eureka lemons are approximately 1 mtr. They are in 4ltr bags and to fit them into our mail order cartons they are pruned to 90cm high. To calculate the freight add both of them to your shopping cart and enter your postcode. Freight will be automatically calculated. #LimeTahitian764 #LemonEureka754

How high will these grow? From:

It will grow 3-5 meters when planted in the ground in good conditions. It can however be kept to under 2m by pruning or you can slow it's growth and keep it smaller by growing it in a pot. The smaller the pot the smaller the Lemon Tree.

Hi, just wondering if you ship this to South Australia when they're ready? I am also wondering this for the dwarf Granny Smith apple and the Ballerina Apple Flamenco as well. Thanks so much. From: MARDEN SA

Hi Lydie, At this stage we are not sending citrus to SA due to quarantine, we are working on becoming accredited at this stage so this may change in the future, please check again with us in 2015. We currently have the dw Granny, here is the link #DwarfApple814 but we will not have ballerinas until winter 2015 #AppleFlamenco2502 To find out how much freight will cost to your address please drop the items you are interested in into the checkout and enter your postcode, or visit http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/Freight-Special.php and enter your postcode..

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

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. | Mohammad Mostafiz - Ingleburn, NSW 10-Dec-2008

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! | J Lesley - Birkdale, QLD 05-Apr-2009

Has produced lots of good sized seedless thin skinned juicy fruit for past two years.  Purchased from Daleys.

September 2009:  More growth and more fruit recorded.  Applied sulphate of potash and watered in.

October 2009:  More growth recorded.

November 2009:  Seemed to have stopped growing as I have not plucked fruit from tree.

December 2009 to March 2010:  Lots more growth and never ending supply of lemons.  The tree is becoming a bush, branching out from close to ground level.

Itdepends1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3012 days 5hrs

Comments: -

The same as my orange tree- this took quite a while to get established but really took off once the vegetable garden was extended and it effectively "moved" from being in the lawn to being in the vege garden. Not suprising really- citrus have very shallow root systems and the grass competes with them a lot.

Has had reasonable crops all year and its rare that I don't have lemons hanging on the tree.

Pruning on this tree is mainly to avoid having it take over too much of the vege garden.

Recently purchased grafted.   way to big for the small poly bag its in, will be getting transplanted into 8 gallon pots in a couple days. Lemons are actually very rare here, most people only know about limes here, which they call "Limones" thinking that Limes and Lemons are the same thing. in spanish they should use "Lima" for limes, and "Limones" for Lemons, but since they are not familiar with good ol yellow Lemons, I intend to show em by growin em :) .  the plants are healthy and had a lemon or two already on them ( being grafted and all no surprise ) but these plants really need a bigger container and soon.

Lemon - Eureka (Grafted) 8/10

3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1892 days 14hrs

Comments: - This tree was purchased from a hardware store closing down sale for a bargain price. It has held on through suspected neglect at the hardware store, confirmed neglect on my roasting west-facing courtyard, several moves, and spending the last six months in a dark and forgotten corner of the yard. Have finally found a permanent place for it in the garden and it is now getting full sun, retic and lots of seasol. It is holding its fruit for the first time and I hope to finally harvest a lemon this sumer!

This lemon has been bought to replace my Myer should it turn its toes up

Dec 2016. Well, this little tree has certainly shown up the Meyer lemon this year. Its first year in a pot, and it has several nice lemons coming on. It did do this job of the Myer with it having its best season yet.

Growing trees in pots certainly means increased vigilence with the management of the tree and its environment. Mulching, increased watering, more regular  fertilising  as opposed to fertilising at the change of season in addition to regular citrus care

Flowered shortly after planting, removed the flowers to let it grow - since then haven't had any more flowers, but a constant battle with leaf curl - obviously all the removal of the new growth is affecting flowering.

Everyone needs a true lemon in their garden! This little guy should be vigorous, and hopefully thorn free. I'm trying to grow it as part of a citrus hedge. It hasn't enjoyed the transplant despite the good soil.

The Eureka had to get moved in Jan 2012. It was growing faster than I ever anticipated and needed tip pruning every weekend. It has grown over 50cm in less than 6 months despite regular pruning. It has been relocated to where it can grow up taller away from the house. Its width will have to be managed as it is against a fence, but it can still spread and grow up.

May 2012 - my attempts to turn this into a hedge failed. It is growing rapidly and seems very content in its current location at the edge of the vegetable garden!
