LEMON - MEYER
The popular Meyer is not a true lemon but likely to be a natural hybrid between a lemon and an orange. The lower acidity and reduced bitterness makes it one of the most widely grown home-garden varieties. Very hardy and prolific.

Question & Answer
Hello there, may i know whats the difference between The "Lemon Meyer Grafted" and the Dwarf Lemon - Meyer Grafted" , please let me know, i want to order one or two of them, thanks From:
The rootstock of the dwarf variety is a flying dragon which makes the size of the plant much smaller. This normal Lemon Meyer uses a rootstock that does not stunt the trees size and will grow 2-4m. The Dwarf Lemon Meyer will grow 1-2m. However the Lemon taste and Lemon size of the fruit are all exactly the same as they are both Meyer Lemons. #DwarfLemon753
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
Please suggest me a Lemon Tree with green coloured, thin skinned, seedless and juicy fruits almost round the year. From: Sydney NSW
I would suggest you try a Meyer lemon, this is not seedless but very juicy and delicious fruit. #LemonMeyer757
Hello. I'm looking to buy a lot a lemon to plant in my front yard. Just wanted to know how tall it could potentially grow in the ground. Cheers! From: WISHART QLD
We don't sell Lots of Lemon. It is a Meyer Lemon selection which grows about 1-2mts. We do grow the standard Meyer Lemon and the Dwarf Meyer Lemon they grow about 2-3mts and 1-2mts respectively #LemonMeyer757 #DwarfLemon753

If I plant this tree in the ground should I give it a year off from fruiting ?
It's been in a pot (larger size each year) but I now have land to plant it in and wonder if it's best to concentrate on letting it grow good roots and leaves for the first year instead of fruit.
