LEMON TREE

Lemon Fruit TreesBy Hans CC0 1.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Citrus limon
Description

The lemon tree is good news for gardeners who want a steady supply of fruit all year round. Lemons, Limes and Lemonades can be used to make lemon bread, lemon meringue pie, fresh lemonade and juices. Citrus trees are becoming more and more popular as landscaping plants, offering not only fruit but an attractive form of year-round, glossy, deep green foliage, and fragrant flowers that would rival any.

Lemon Meyer By DaleysFruit.com.au [All Rights Reserved]

Dwarf Lemon - Meyer

This popular variety of 'lemon' 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 lemons for the home-garden. Very hardy and prolific. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Citron

The fragrant fruits of the citron are highly variable in shape and texture. They can be oblong,  oval, rough or smooth. The candied peel is used in the food industry and is a common ingredient in fruit cakes, plum pudding, sweet rolls and candies. If fully ripen on the tree the fruits are very aromatic and yellow, they can be placed in a bowl to scent a room. Sensitive to frost, the foliage and fruit can also be damaged by intense heat and drought.

I find a few of these trees around the area where I rent. I picked a bag and squeezed them into a bottle just by the dirt road and made lemonade. | Josh Scrivener - Main Arm, NSW 24-Apr-2006

Water only when soil appears dry. do not over feed (ony feed in 2 weekly periods or the plant may die.) | Benjamin Brown - London, - 29-Aug-2006

Lemon Tree

Must have adequate magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts) 1 kilo packet spread thinly & well watered revives sick trees, esp.in WA. Saturated solution of Epsoms with enough Condys crystals to make dark pink spray helps all citrus trees with black mould | Joyce Crouchley - Boya, WA 08-Aug-2007

Granny's cure for sick /sad lemon tree - 2 or 3 4" nails into the trunk depending on size of tree sparks them right up. Lemon trees need iron apparently | Greg Boyce - Sydney, NSW 04-Jul-2009
