Product Description

Citrus meyeri, the Meyer lemon, is a citrus fruit native to China. It is thought to be a cross between a true lemon and either a mandarin or common orange.

Citrus meyeri trees are around 2 to 3 m tall at maturity, though they can be pruned smaller. Their leaves are dark green and shiny and the fragrant flowers are white with a purple base.

The Meyer lemon fruit is yellow and rounder than a true lemon. The skin is fragrant and thin, coloured a deep yellow with a slight orange tint when ripe.

Meyer lemon fruits have a sweeter, less acidic flavour than the more common Lisbon or Eureka supermarket lemon varieties. The pulp is a dark yellow and contains up to 10 seeds per fruit.

  • Sweet fruit
  • Easily grown in either a garden bed or tub.
  • Heavy bearer
