What is the difference between rooted and grafted?

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.


Great for growers with some experience with plants

Meyer lemons are sweeter and less acidic than typical store-bought lemons

Produces lots of fruit year-round

Sweet-smelling blooms


Large: 12-18 inches in a 1-gallon container

X-Large (Rooted): 20-30 inches in a 3-gallon container

X-Large (Grafted): 3-4 feet in a 3-gallon container


Light requirement: 6 hours minimum, but 8+ hours preferred

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.


Fruit flavor: similar to a store-bought lemon, but sweeter and less acidic

Fruit size: slightly larger than an average lemon

Fruiting season: year-round

Time before fruiting:

Large: 6-12 months

X-Large (Rooted): 6+ months

X-Large (Grafted): 6+ months
