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.

Customer Comments on Lemon - Eureka
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

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
