What is the difference between rooted and grafted?

Also known as the “five-pound lemon,” this lemon variety does exceptionally well in containers and is one of the easiest lemons to grow in a container! It is capable of producing very large fruit (up to five pounds) year-round, even as a small tree! These large fruits require a lot of light, though, so the Ponderosa lemon tree is more light-demanding than some other citrus trees.

Many of our Ponderosa lemon trees are already flowering!


Perfect for new growers - one of the easiest lemon trees to grow indoors

We're different from other sellers.

  • Transparency

    We use photos of our actual products so you know what you're ordering. None of that small print stuff.

  • Customer service

    We are here to help every step of the way. Have a question before you purchase? A year later? Reach out! We love talking about plants anyway.

  • Small business in Wisconsin

    We aren't a big corporation that pays the big boss and takes from the little guy. Just a family-run small business in Sun Prairie, WI.

  • Indoor fruiting trees

    Our trees never have to be planted in the ground unless you want to. That means they can be grown from any location - as long as they have enough light, of course. Hello, fresh lemonade!
