LEMON - MEYER

Lemon MeyerBotanical Name: Citrus limon
Description

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

Lemon - Meyer (Grafted) 9/10

KitschWitch's Edible Fruits
Update: 2601 days 17hrs

Comments: -

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 should have another flush of fruit in a few months.

The fruit are large, not as bitter as traditional lemons but great for most purposes. My children like to suck on them (but then they also suck on trad. lemons).

The tree is very healthy, no discoloured leaves. We feed it with compost and it also gets a good share of urine during the warmer months! I might have put some trace element mix on it at some stage and would do so again.

it is growing in front of a cream-painted north facing wall, which suits it well. I will try a traditional lemon soon to see if that also goes well in the frosty Canberra climate.

Amanda19's Edible Fruits
Update: 2593 days 4hrs

Comments: -

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 watering.

Is fed manure, clay, straw, Blood n bone 10% potash and pine bark chips. Needs zinc, iron and manganese foliar sprays from time to time.

I do things "when I get around to it" - generally.

Aug 2010: just removed all the ripe fruit - many weighing half a kilo each....gave away. Covered in flowers again - but bummed as I really want to get in there and prune it?

This variety is said to be a cross between a lemon and an orange  so it doesn't have the true acidic/sour/tangy factor like  Eurekas or Lisbon, but it's mild sweetness is good for making refreshing drinks.

HomegrownHeddibles1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2937 days 12hrs

Comments: -

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 due to the soil sinking as the tree grew.  Consequently, the uppermost roots were exposed to the cold and the tree is suffering.  Its leaves are yellowing and dropping and it hasn't flowered this winter.

I've covered the roots with more compost and given it a bit of a hair cut, plus some boron and Seasol to promote root growth.  Hopefully as the weather warms up it will pick up and return to good health.

If the worst happens, it will have to come out and be replaced.  I might try a Lemonade, for the juice and a Lots'a'Lemons in a pot rather than another Meyer in the ground if need be.

Oriente's Edible Fruits
Update: 2948 days 5hrs

Comments: -

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 tree was). Now it's doing OK, still small but...alive and producing fruit. To be on the safe side I bought another Meyer which was planted in a pot.

I do not care very much about the fruit at this stage since I am interested in the shape of the trees and I prune them all the time.

Given by friends in a pot, took 3 clumps in spring 2009 and put them out in different spots in the garden. The one in front of the airconditioner seems to be coping with the extra hot wind in summer and hand watering daily. Makes sensational ice tea: infuse 800ml lemongrass for about 10 mins, separately infuse 500ml grean tea for 1 minute. Mix and stick in the fridge. I've found the roots a bit too woody. Maybe I need to harvest younger. Leaf also useful as mulch / compost ingredient, but watch for paper cuts

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 fruits grow.

In dry spells new growth will make it shed old growth, samme with fruiting. Now looking great and will have to watch for the hoppers and grubs!

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 this year. I think it was a combination of losing all its leaves last year and a lack of fertiliser. I spinkled some trace minerals and watered the plant with some iron chelate. The leaves are getting some green colouring back but still has a long way to go before it looks fully healthy again.

Comments: - When I was a kid in the UK I thought paradise was living somewhere you could grow a lemon tree in your back yard. Now I just love my fresh tasing G & Ts and acid balancing properties.

Fruiting Months February, March, April, May

Planted: 2011

Height 3 Feet

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Fruit Harvest: 15 Fruit Per Year

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Winter and Spring

Pruned By: 30% in After Fruiting

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Whole citrus mix and dung

When I Fertilise: When Fruiting, Winter, Spring

Pest Control: It's been lucky, small amount of scale and a couple of caterpillars. No spray used except Eco oil and some hand squishing.

Question:

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.

Comments: - Love the flavour of the Lemon Meyer. All our fruit trees will be grown in large containers/pots as we have some very large estabilished trees, gums and none of fruit trees were growing well. So we transplanted them into large pots.

Sometimes a stick and other times a flourishing tree. can't figure out what the problem is. Fruits from time to time but overall I'd rate it as a bare pass.
