Lemon - Meyer

Citrus limon

Lemon Meyer

Fruit Trees > Citrus Trees > Lemon Tree > 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 sourness makes it one of the most widely grown home-garden varieties. Very hardy and prolific. The fruits are a deep orange-yellow colour with thin skin and they are very juicy, making them perfect for use in dressings and marinades. The meyer is low in pectin.
Other Names: Citrus myer

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 ...

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.

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...

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.

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...

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.
