Best Lemon to Grow in a Container

  • Semi-dwarf on its own rootstock
  • USDA Zones: 9-10 (grow in containers in other zones)
  • Fruit: Less acidic than Eureka, with a softer rind. Unique flavor versatile for many uses, including desserts, salad dressing, and marinades.
  • Facts of note: Popular home garden citrus. Brought from China in 1908 by Frank Meyer, it is likely a hybrid of lemon and orange or mandarin. Trees are more compact than true lemons and are ideal for container growing, indoors or outside. Often two bloom cycles, spring and fall, providing fruit much of the year.

    About Our Citrus

    Add a little zest to your garden! Citrus trees are potted, evergreen, semi-dwarf, 1 ½-years-old, pencil caliper, 18”-24” tall measured from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree. They will, with good care, produce fragrant, self-pollinating flowers and wonderful fruit. Mature height 8’–12’, but can be pruned to suit in ground or in containers.

    Choose a sunny location, in well drained soil, sheltered from wind. They are affected by freezing temperatures, and in many locales require frost protection.

    These are evergreen trees and thus the dormant bare root guarantee does not apply. Your trees will arrive in good, viable condition. Contact us immediately if they do not. Non-taxable.

Customer Reviews


I ordered this tree in the spring and it arrived perfectly healthy. It has a TON of flowers and I can see fruit behind two (though I don't expect them to last since it is so young).

Great Tree Great Price

I was a little worried about ordering a lemon tree online because of the time it would spend in a box before arriving. After about a week my tree arrived. It was in great condition with 4 healthy and leafy branches. Almost a week later my tree is doing great with no leaf loss. I will definitely be ordering again from grow organic!
