Short Description

The hardiest, and one the easiest of all dwarf lemon trees to grow.

Full Description

‘Improved Meyer’ lemon can bloom and produce fruit year round, with fragrant white flowers followed by large, aromatic yellow lemons. Technically a hybrid between a lemon and an orange, the ‘Improved Meyer’ lemon is very juicy, and a little sweeter and less acidic than store bought lemons. In the winter, bring inside to a conservatory or bright sunny room. Bears fruit 1-2 years after planting. ‘Improved Meyer’ lemon is self-fertile, but will require hand-pollination when grown indoors.
