Anyone for a G&T? Don't you just love Lemons? They look good, smell wonderful, taste fabulous and offer so much as a garden plant with aesthetic, medicinal and culinary properties. Once your Lemon trees are established you will find that they will provide you with fruit for most of the year. This is particularly so with the hardy Meyer Lemon which is a prolific croper with mature fruit holding well whilst the new fruit is developing. If you are looking for a strongly acidic lemon then "Eureka" may be the one for you. The other bonus with "Eureka" is that the tree is virtually thornless and the fruit virtually seedless. For a milder flavour choose the hybrid "Lemonade".   Lemons do need some pampering at first however, and for just a little effort you will be well rewarded. First you need to know that Lemons are gross feeders. What that means is that like me they enjoy their tucker. Unlike me they only have to be fed twice a year, early spring and early autumn. It is best to use a specially formulated Citrus food which is readily available. I also throw a few sheep pellets around the base of my Lemon trees a few times a year.

aka Lemon

Citrus. Here's something to make you go 'Eureka' - an unusual variegated form of this popular Lemon. Both the foliage and fruit are variegated green and lemon but the fruit turn completely yellow upon maturity. The flesh of the lemon has hints of pink. Evergreen.

Lemon Eureka loves a warm sheltered spot in the garden with protection from harsh frost. The fruit has quite a low pip count and there are not too many thorns on the branches so if you fertilize and water regularly you've got yourself a great little Lemon tree. Citrus Information Pages
