Semi-dwarf on its own rootstock.
Zones: 10 (other zones protect in freezing temperatures)
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.
Add a little zest to your garden! Citrus trees are potted, evergreen, semi-dwarf, 1 ½-years-old, pencil caliper, 18”-24” tall 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. 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 below freezing temperatures, and in many locales require cold protection. Most tender to most hardy: Bearss Lime, lemons, orange, tangelo, grapefruit, mandarin, kumquat. Non-taxable. 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.
