Lemon Seedless

    2 responses

Brain starts with ...
Just came across a new variety of Eureka Lemon - seedless. (And no, I don't get any royalty from the sale of this plant.) As this was something new, so naturally I just had to have it. :)

This one is sourced from South Africa and was released only in June this year. To achieve this feat, it was irradiated.

Though according to my research, there is a 2PH (Qld) version which is not available to the home gardeners and another version, marketed by the Engalls, which was released 2 years ago.

The only catch is, I don't know what rootstock they used. If you follow up on the lemon literature, Eurekas are not compatible with Trifoliata and related rootstocks.

Daley is a distributor, so I think in time, they might start selling them also.

I'm just excited! lol.

If you take the scion wood for a graft from a very mature plant that will happen eventually, though it will still occasionally have the odd seed, which if grown, will have a very seedy fruit at first.

But what's the disadvantage of seeds in a lemon? It's not as if you are going to peel it, eat it, and have to spit out the seeds.

I actually don't mind the seeds, all too often, I save the seeds and grow them. It's great fun.

I think the main advantage of a seedless lemon is when you have a wedge and juice directly onto food. Or when you add to drinks, you don't have seeds floating around and try to fish it out. I think it will give the Tahitian lime a run for the money.
