Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

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


Citrus limon

Glossy dark green foliage and fragrant flowers produce thin skinned, juicy lemons year round. Meyer lemons are small, rounder and darker yellow than other lemons. The gourmet of lemons, Meyer lemons are prized for their juice, which is sweeter, somewhat floral, and less acidic than other lemons. The purple-tinted flowers are very fragrant.

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. Meyer Lemon rees tend to be small and bushy, and will reach 15' outdoors but can easily be kept 7' - 10' with regular pruning. Makes an excellent container plant.
