Meyer Lemon Fruit
Features of the Meyer lemon:
- The Meyer lemon is thin-skinned with a bright yellow rind, which turns orange-yellow as the fruit ripens on the tree.
- The lemons have a juicy, moderately acidic and flowery flavor with lots of seeds and can be difficult to peel.
- Meyer lemon trees are prolific citrus fruit producers with incredibly fragrant and beautiful blossoms.
- The tree grows lemons that are smaller and more cold-resistant than Eureka lemons.
- The lemon juice tastes sweeter than a Eureka and provides a medium lemon flavor.
- Meyer lemons are a hybrid of a lemon and mandarin and are less acidic than other true lemons as a result.
- Meyer lemons make for a sweet and nutritious lemonade.
Meyer Lemon Tree
Features of the Meyer lemon tree:
- A perfect ornamental tree for indoors or as a patio citrus tree.
- The tree provides beautiful dense and dark green leaves.
- The tree can withstand temperatures down to low 20 degrees F.
- Meyer lemon trees grow half the height of true Eureka lemons and can be trained as hedges or espalier.
- The lemon tree can grow delicious lemons indoors or out. Those in northern areas can successfully grow Meyer lemons indoors by avoiding freezing temperatures.
- The tree can be moved into a pot inside your home in colder climates.
- The tree provides a fresh, delightful scent and blossoms beautifully, with purple-tinged flowers.
- The "Improved" Meyer lemon tree (the only Meyer Lemon variety we grow) is a virus-free version of the lemon tree imported to the United States from China. The original Meyer lemon tree was prohibited from commercial productions decades ago.
The Improved Meyer lemon tree has consistently garnered attention from horticultural and culinary enthusiasts. It took off in the U.S. partially due to its ability to withstand temperate climates and produce lemons throughout the year.
