Dwarf Lemon - Meyer (Grafted) 10/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 29 days 16hrs

Comments: - Has delicious fruit - was here when we moved in. I've tried an experiment wtih the size of the tree and sectioned it off into quarters. I pruned one quarter almost skeletonised, one pruned heavily, one lightly and one not at all. It's worked really well - instead of having a glut of lemons every Winter, we now have a manageable crop every three months. Now, we have full grown lemons storing on the three, half grown lemons, blossom and foliage growth. Going to try on other citrus trees to see if it's successful.

Fruiting Months January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December

Height 2.2 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Fruit Harvest: 20 kilograms per Year

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pruned By: 25% in Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Compost, Seasol, Dynamic Lifter, worm castings, worm tea, manure

Pest Control: Sometimes find galls from the citrus gall wasp - I use a trap and prune off the swellings. Hardly have any as I stay quite vigilant with it.

Update: 61 days 17hrs

Comments: -

Planted November 2015 so too young to be able to review anything yet. It's currently in full sun. I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in a 75 litre planter bag with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then kind of equal amounts of good quality potty mix, coir peat, perlite and a shovel of organic pellets mixed through.

 A really good layer of small pine bark on top.

Looking forward to trying these :)


Oct 2019 update - It was the first season I let them fruit this winter just gone. Theyre flowering/fruiting again. They were absolutley beautiful! Sweet and juicy and just wow! I cant wait till they get bigger so I get a bigger yield. I recently repotted to their forever home pots, 160 litre pots with a good mix of peat moss, perlite and vermalite.

Dwarf Lemon - Meyer (Grafted) 9/10

Going great guns! Purchased about April 2015. 

I water almost daily depending on weather and fertlise about every 6 to 8 weeks. When fruiting is over I will be repotting into a 75 litre planter bag as I have with all other citrus and blueberries. 

Seems to be going well as it has about 12-14 fruit on it but it could do with some more room and better quality medium that provides better drainage. I've found that a good mix of pine bark, coir peat and perlite works wonders so the lemon will be getting that too when fruiting is finished as well as a prune.

Planted about July 2015 in a 50cm pot. Going well, has about 3 small fruit. 

It's currently in full sun. I water almost daily depending on weather.

Accidently purchased thinking it was a dwarf. Oh well I'll just have to ensure I keep up with the pruning :)

Tamarillo - Orange (Seedling) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 86 days 14hrs

Comments: -

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2019

Flowering! Lost a couple of leaves to heavy frost over Winter (I forgot to apply some protection) but excited it is flowering. Now about 1.8-1.9m tall.

UPDATE March 2019

Now in ground. Gets watered by watering system every few days. In ground next to well established Meyer lemon.

UPDATE January 2019

Had a couple of 40 degree  days which caused wilting but most leaves bounced back with deep watering. Cut the top off once it was a metre tall to encourage branching. Keeping the water up to it - easy to tell when it needs water as the huge leaves start to look a little relaxed. Considering moving out of pot into ground in protected position.

INITIAL October 2018

I love red tamarillos so thought I'd try growing the orange ones for something different. Growing well since September (spring).
