MOUNT OMMANEY, QLD, Australia
Haven't managed to get any product off this tree despite its many years in my garden--I seem to have finally cracked the formula by supplementing magnesium and zinc, as well as keeping on top of mealy bugs with a neem oil/dishwashing liquid spray. Now ...
MILDURA, VIC, Australia
Lovely small lemon tree, baring a large crop of fruit. Fruit tastes of lemon, with mandarine.Have had this plant well over a decade, But was not doing well in a container so planted it, after moving, into my garden where it has been thriving.
MOUNT GRAVATT , QLD, Australia
Have recently discovered the cocktail lynchberg lemonade. So I can't wait to be using my own lemons to make them! The tree is so vigorous despite a constant battle with ants farming mealybug! I'm going to let it get a bit bigger then stress it into flo...

Fruiting early lots of new growth
USA, CA, Orange County
This is a semi dwarf advanced meyer lemon. So far it has been a good producer with tons of flowers. I planted it last January 2011 so this will be the first year I will harvest the fruit but so far it is full of big green lemons starting to yellow. I w...
Burnside, VIC, Australia
I was given this tree by my sister in-law, unfortuantely it is quiet small so I don't think we will get any fruits for a while. I had this lemon before and absolutely love the flavor.Update: I noticed this tree losing a lot of its green colouring thi...

Altona Meadows, VIC, Australia
Compact tree. Large lemons that are on th sweeter side. They should call the juice burst they are so juicy!
Rivett, ACT, Australia
This tree is about two years old now and has been fruiting for the past 2 months--around 50 fruit altogether. During the first year I removed all of the flowers so the tree would put its energy into growth. There have already been more flowers so we sh...
SPEERS POINT, NSW, Australia
Existing tree in orchard and got first fruit with more coming on. Finches love nesting in it!
Keperra, QLD, Australia
Has been in the ground for a bit over a year. grows quickly after good rains (of which we've had a few in the past 6mths) and is hardly without flowers/small fruit, which I've knocked off to let the roots set. At the stage now where I will let the frui...
North Sydney, NSW, Australia
Sometimes a stick and other times a flourishing tree. can't figureout what the problem is. Fruits from time to time but overall I'd rateit as a bare pass.

Grow where moist
Calvert, QLD, Australia
My mum and stepfather bought us this as a housewarming present. Can't wait to first fruit.
Goodna, QLD, Australia
damaged early by hail storm then infested by leaf miners. A couple of lemons were allowed to develop to see what the quaility of the fruit would be. Quality good.
Kambah, ACT, Australia
The first citrus tree I bought when moving to my house. At first it did not go well as Meyer did not like the position. It looked terminally ill. I dug it out and replanted it in a different position (after having a look at where my neighbour's Lemon ...
Albany, WA, Australia
Young tree, took six months to get going. Came with scale, but once I got rid of that and started feeding with seaweed and fish emulsion, it never looked back. Thin skinned compared to Eureka, but not such a heavy fruiter.
Upper Ferntree Gully, VIC, Australia
Our poor lemon tree is suffering; the second one that we've had. The first one drowned due to planting in too heavy a soil prior to setting up the raised orchard bed. This one grew too well and I didn't notice that the roots were becoming exposed d...
Petersham, NSW, Australia
Has stayed small, all blossons fell off last year. Is in blossom aqgain now, so we are hopeful.
Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne And Wear, GB
Two trees. One is 7 years old and fruits prolifically. The newer one was planted 2008 and as yet hasn't fruited.
LAWSON, NSW, Australia
We've moved this poor plant quite a few times now: I hope we can leave it where it is for a while.
Como, NSW, Australia
We have just harvested over 20 lemons from our bush. It is only small, in a pot and we had to support some of the branches because I was afraid they would break. The fruit is wonderful and juicy and sweet. It seems to fruit all year.
Hillarys, WA, Australia
Second time around. First tree died.This tree took months to sprout new leaves. New leaves under heavy attack from leaf miner. Scale big problem. Older leaves dark green with yellow mottling.Cant add anything to pest control
Has been exposed to strong winds over 3 yrs - I have focussed on pruning for strong framework and removed flowers for first 2 yrs.Carried an awesome crop this season no problems but had to thin some of the bunches. Needs a fair amount of feeding and wa...
