Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Eureka Lemon is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Planting & Care
Lemon trees do well in a rich soil mixture of native soil and grow mulch. Lemons must have well-draining soil and will not tolerate standing in water. Mulching helps retain moisture and helps to stabilize the soil temperature. Requires full sun, 8 - 12 hours a day and consistent moisture. Lemon trees are fast-growing and will reach 20' outdoors but can easily be kept 7' - 10' with regular pruning. Makes an excellent container plant that willl tolerate occasional light frost.
