Seems citrus like it here. This has only been planted about 2 years and has grown well and has a good crop for it's size this year. Good flavour, plenty of juice.

Large tree producing a copious crop of excellent lemons which ripen in winter. We prune it hard to limit height of tree to 3 m, and it responds very well. This variety is very hardy. Recommended.
