One-year-old plants are budwood grafted on rough orange rootstock, staked and planted in citra-pots. ALL CITRUS IS GREENHOUSE GROWN. Please take care to acclimate your baby trees to their new environment. Protect from full sun and begin exposing trees to sun gradually. Water daily – even if you think you shouldn’t. If you are in a very hot area, please protect from sun until the plant is of a mature size.
I would rather not sell to people in desert-like or desert areas. If you buy a citrus tree, please be sure it can survive in your area.
Meyer lemons are a small to medium variety, and have a round to oval shape. The peel is thin, smooth, glossy, golden yellow to orange, and aromatic, lightly textured with glands that release essential oils. Underneath the peel, there is a thin and spongy white pith enveloping yellow-orange flesh, divided into 9 to 10 segments by white membranes. The flesh is also soft, tender, and aqueous, encasing a few seeds or being found seedless. Meyer lemons are highly fragrant and emit a bright, herbal scent with subtle spice-filled notes. The fruits also contain low acidity and a high sugar content, developing a sweet, zesty flavor with floral undertones.
The Meyer lemon is one of the most popular fruit trees for home-grown citrus. It provides lemons very quickly. And it is fairly effortless to grow and produces sweet lemons that can be eaten without the sour taste on most lemons
Meyer lemons were first introduced to the United States from China in the early 20th century by Frank Meyer, from whom they also got their name. This sweet winter citrus is thought to be a cross between a regular lemon and a mandarin orange. And that’s what really sets it apart.
Appearance – Meyer lemons are smaller and more round than regular lemons, with smoother, thin, deep yellow to orange skin, and dark yellow pulp. The differences are very distinct, especially when you see both varieties side by side.
Taste – While they’re moderately acidic, Meyer lemons don’t have the same tang as regular lemons. Instead, they’re much sweeter — so much so that some people enjoy adding the raw segments to their salads or desserts. Their rinds also have a more complex scent than regular lemons — a spicy bergamot fragrance that tastes and smells more like an herb or a spice.
Availability – While regular lemons are readily available all year long, Meyer lemons are more seasonal. Your best bet for finding them is from December through May.
