Meyer Lemon Trees for Sale Online

When life doesn't give you lemons...grow them! The Meyer Lemon tree is an improved lemon tree cultivar that produces sweet, juicy lemons! The fruits this tree produces are often described as 'rounder' and 'less seedy' than your typical lemon.

Brought to the United States from China in 1908, this citrus tree has since climbed the ladder in popularity and become an icon in the world of plants that grow indoors and out. The Improved Meyer Lemon Tree made our Trendiest House Plants of 2020 list and has since remained a popular indoor plant throughout the years!

Meyer Lemon Trees(citrus Limon 'Improved Meyer') grow fragrant white blooms and later produce fruits. As Meyer Lemon Trees mature, they will bear more quantities of fruit. The fruits are green when growing, but after several months of tender love and care, they turn a vivid yellow when ripe. The ideal time for harvest is when the fruit is yellow and soft to the touch.

Your Meyer Lemon Tree requires bright indirect light and a well-draining soil medium. A south-facing window is the ideal location for this sun-loving tree. It is important to note that Fruit-producing trees do not enjoy soaking in wet soil for long. A chunky potting soil blend and a container with drainage holes are essential for the well-being of your citrus tree.

Your Lemon tree will also benefit from applying a slow-release fertilizer high in nutrients. We recommend using Espoma Citrus Tone in the spring and early summer!

While many choose to grow Meyer Lemon Trees outdoors, you may decide to grow your tree in a container and bring it indoors for the winter if you live in a colder growing zone. When grown in containers, these trees typically reach a mature height between four and five feet tall.

For more in-depth Meyer Lemon Tree care instructions, be sure to check out our Citrus Tree Care Guide!

Once you've mastered lemons, you can move on to growing other fruit-bearing trees like our Calamondin Orange Tree or our Key Lime Tree! The world is your oyster...or should we say lemon?

How to Care for Meyer Lemon Tree

Be sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving!

How do I water my Meyer Lemon Trees?

How do I water my Meyer Lemon Trees?

Container-grown lemon trees need more water than those planted outside. In the spring, water two to three times a week. In the summer, as temperatures rise, your lemon tree may need to be watered daily. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. A good indication of when you should water is to check the top 2 to 3 inches of soil. If it is dry to the touch, your lemon tree needs watering. Houses generally don't have the humidity lemon trees need to grow and bear fruit. Mist or spray your lemon tree several times a week.

How do I fertilize my Meyer Lemon Trees?

How do I fertilize my Meyer Lemon Trees?

We recommend feeding your indoor citrus plants with Espoma Citrus-tone. It is best to fertilize your plants by sprinkling one teaspoon of fertilizer on the soil surface per every 4 inches of pot diameter. Apply double for pots over 12 inches. Be sure to mix the fertilizer into the top layer of soil by using a fork to gently stir the fertilizer into the top 2 inches of soil evenly. With frequent watering of potted plants, nutrients may be lost, and more frequent applications may be required. Feed every 60 days in late winter to fall.

What type of soil is best for my Improved Lemon Trees?

What type of soil is best for my Improved Lemon Trees?

Meyer Lemon Trees thrive best in lightweight and well-draining soil conditions. However, they are not too picky when it comes to most soil mixes. We recommend using Espoma Cactus Mix to provide an optimal base for your Meyer Lemon Tree to grow beautifully for years to come.

How to prune a Meyer Lemon Tree?

How to prune a Meyer Lemon Tree?

Regularly pruning citrus trees and shrubs is necessary to encourage outward growth for better fruit production. Disinfect your pruning tools with a solution of 10-percent bleach, which contains one part bleach and nine parts water. Bypass pruners work well for clipping small branches less than 1/2 inch in diameter. Cut diseased, broken, and dead branches off the tree as they develop throughout the year. Eliminate any rubbing or crossing branches to encourage an outward growing habit with an open center; so sunlight reaches all the branches.
