Meyer Lemon Potted Tree
Meyer Lemon Potted Tree
Enjoy your own hand-squeezed lemonade, with less sugar! This naturally-sweeter lemon is one of the most popular potted citrus trees, and for good reason! Its vigor truly amazes us and its year-round fruit is just fantastic! Contrary to belief, Meyer lemon trees are a little fussy when it comes to environmental conditions. They are rooted trees that need ample sunlight, warmth, and appropriate watering at the right timing - that's why we recommend this variety to growers with some experience with plants.
Due to the size of the X-Large Meyer lemon trees, we are only able to offer local delivery or local pickup at this time. The small and large sizes are available for shipping, local delivery, or local pickup.
All tree photos are of Frank's Fruit Trees. Photos of fruit are NOT from Frank's Fruit Trees, but are used to show what the fruit will look like once it is produced.

If kept outside during warm months and inside during cold months, the Meyer lemon tree will need some help adjusting to indoor lighting when coming inside for the winter. Plan on giving it a a week or two to transition to more shade before bringing it inside. Alternatively, you can purchase a high-power grow light for use inside.
Soil: All citrus trees require well-draining soil, but this is especially important for the Meyer lemon tree. It is more susceptible to root rot than other varieties if the soil is moist for too long. It should still be watered thoroughly, but should be allowed to dry completely before watering again.
