    Meyer Lemons, Meyer Lemon Tree: Everything you would ever want to know


    from the website

    Compact enough even for urban balconies and limited-space gardens, Meyer Improved lemon trees will begin bearing large, juicy, thick-skinned fruit at an early age! Even if there were no fruit at all, this evergreen would be attractive enough to grow as an ornamental.

    The leaves are lush and glossy, the small white flowers (arising indoors in late winter, just when the house needs some color and scent!) are intensely fragrant, and the habit is upright and well-branched. Depending on the size container and pruning you give it, this tree could reach 8 feet high and 10 feet wide, but can also be kept smaller.

    The lemons are the real prizes of Meyer Improved. They arise in clusters of about 6 after the blooms pass. Thin immediately to about 2 or 3 per cluster, unless you want more plentiful but much smaller fruits.

  4. Good luck growing lemon trees from seed I would just get a catalog and order a dwarf lemon tree making sure its edible and not just ornamental, they come pretty small and then just keep it at whatever size suits you
  5. growing from seed will eventually produce fruit and will be a fun experience
    but from my research i've gathered that they take a few year to do so first but after that you should get fruits every year
  6. Unless you buy them, goodluck getting them going
