Lemon Tree


Having fun with my lemon tree.
Took in in the house last week to
over winter in our sunny window.
Some lemons are the size of oranges,
others are the size of golf balls.

Looks great. Did you overwinter it inside in the past? Are the flowers fragrant?

Re: Lemon Tree


Thanks Jeff,
We got the tree last Christmas (2016) from our son.
So, last winter was our first experience with the tree.

It was full of blossoms, and yes, it was and still is pleasantly fragrant
(lemony) The blossoms turned into lemons over
the winter. We kept it in our sunny bay window all winter.

It catches the morning sun from the left window, the afternoon
sun from the middle window and the late afternoon window from
the right window.

We took the tree outside in mid May and placed
it on our deck in the sun.

We had to trim off about a foot
off the top before bringing it back in a couple of weeks ago or
it wouldn't have been able to fit into the bay window. We live in Zone 7.

Some of the lemons are now huge the size of oranges, some are golf ball
size, some are pea size and smaller. They're dozens and dozens of
lemons.

Our son named her Merangue...
If you or anyone else want furthur info on how we care for it, I'll be happy to share it.

This is it, the day after we got it Dec, 26' 2016 ... As you can see it was quite
a bit slimmer and full of blossoms.

Re: Lemon Tree


This is Merangue now (10 months since we got her)
I had to close the blinds to get the shot.

Re: Lemon Tree


When I said some of the lemons are the size of oranges, I was serious.
BTW, it's a Meyer's Lemon tree..Our son got it at a local nursery in our area.

Re: Lemon Tree


Jeff, I came across this website this morning while researching a coffee tree.

I'm thinking about a coffee tree ( ) and I was looking on line
to learn about it before I made a request for one from my son for
Christmas. (Hopefully, he can purchase one from the same nursery that he got my lemon tree.)

In case you can't find a lemon tree at your local nursery, here's the website.
I read a few of the customer reviews and they seem positive.

Good luck.
Joann

Re: Lemon Tree


Question about Coffee Trees? Does anyone have experience in growing a coffee tree inside vs outside? Does it require sunlight? etc.

Re: Lemon Tree


My friend that lives in Pennsylvania has one. She brings it in the house
in the winter. She said its low light in the house.
It's a beautiful looking plant and would make a lovely winter
house plant.
