Our Lemon Range
Lemons are a staple for every home gardener! Everyone needs a lemon in the backyard or in a pot on the balcony. Used in culinary masterpieces from around the world or simply in your gin and tonic or on your fish and chips. Why not plant a few different varieties to ensure you have fruit all year round?
LEMON EUREKA (Citrus limon ‘Eureka)
The more traditional, larger growing backyard lemon. Although can grow tall, regularly pruning encourages a bushier habit that is easier to maintain. Lemons are large with medium to thick skin with plenty of strong acidic juice. Great for cooking or on fish and chips. The best benefit is the Eureka fruits all year round, with the heaviest crop in winter, so you're nearly always guaranteed a lemon. Also see our Dwarf Eureka Lemon variety.
LEMON MEYER (Citrus limon ‘Meyer’)
Meyer is a smaller sized tree, growing to a maximum of 2.5 metres. It produces numerous crops of medium sized lemons throughout the year. The fruit has softer skin, turning a deep golden colour when ripe. The meyer contains an abundance of juice that is slightly sweeter, and containing less acid than other lemons. This lemon makes a fantastic pot specimen. The most cold tolerant citrus. Also see our Dwarf Meyer Lemon variety.
LEMON LISBON (Citrus limon ‘Lisbon’)
The Lisbon Lemon is the most common commercially grown lemon in Australia. It is a very vigorous tree, up to 7 metres high in its lifetime under ideal conditions.
