My small lemonade tree had a bumper crop.I have read that it is a cross between lemon and navel orange. Also read it's a cross between mandarin and lemon. I don't know which cross mine is, but I don't care - I love it anyway.

My lemonade tree was once infested with black aphids, so use this effective organic spray: mix a couple of soap flakes with warm water in some sort of non-plastic container. Let it dissolve, and pour into spray bottle. Spray until infestation is gone.

Best cocktail ever: ice cubes, juice of one large lemonade fruit, whiskey and top up with ginger beer. Just as good without the whiskey.

I bought a house with a very established tree, about 5 metres tall, has heaps of fruit on it . From other locals it is across between a mandarin and lemon tree, mine are tart at moment but apparently a couple of more frosts will release more sugar.

I love lemonade fruit! Got this one from Clunes nursery - was very healthy and even though it is is quite young, I have been nipping its buds so it can get stronger before it fruits. Im thinking now to just let it do what it wants and see what happens...

This tree was hit the hardest by every citrus pest - galls, aphids, sooty mould, bronze orange bug - and just didnt get going well. So it was pulled up and replaced with a Freemont mandarin, a much tougher and stronger plant and an amazing fruit.------...

Is only just starting to grow well now, after 2 years of being cut down by pet geese. Points for toughness. Quite a draw card for the gall wasp.

My Lemonade tree is crowded in the garden with other shrubs, hardly gets any care except good waterering and it has loads of fruit every year. It is about 12 years old now. I squeeze the juice of what we we cannot eat.

There is no sourness in this fruit at all. It is absolutely beautifully sweet. A bonus for this tree is that it is always in fruit.

Weve got a really prolific fruiter and eat them as is but mostly juice them and dilute with about 2/3 water, way better than fizzy drinks and we freeze any excess.
