Botanical Name: Citrus limon
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.

Customer Comments on Lemon Tree
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
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
Damn those gall wasp, killed my 20+ yo lemon tree ~~~ | Benjam - Melbourne, VIC 21-May-2011
Lemon - Lisbon
Buy only small or few thorns eg=meyer,genoa,eureka,verna. Lisbon & other long thorny types are too hard to handle!! | Raymond DOBLO - TWEED HEADS SOUTH, NSW 13-Aug-2018
