Notice: This tree cannot ship to Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida or Hawaii due to USDA regulations.
We are a Family Owned Farm specializing in Dwarf Citrus & Fruit Trees. All of our trees are inspected and approved by the USDA.
Our trees are not grown from seed, they are grafted from mature trees unto a dwarf root stock. This allows you to see blossoms and fruit as early as one year old! Our trees are very hardy, of the best quality and have a three year warranty!
The Ponderosa Lemon tree is a great plant for the indoors though it does not like the full sun or air drafts. If grown in the northern climates, grow lights are an excellent source of light. The tree should be planted in a light soil mix of peat moss, perlite and vermiculite. It should also have good drainage and needs to be watered every few weeks. Do allow the soil to dry out between watering as the roots will rot if left sitting in water. If planted in a container, the tree will not grow larger than 8 feet. The tree itself has thorns, but the fruit is worth the effort. It is not freeze tolerant, so do not place the tree outside in the winter. Do keep it warm, as it loves the heat and will blossom if kept in 80 to 90 degrees. Be sure to mist the leaves with a water spray daily. The trees love humidity. The lemon blossoms of the Ponderosa Lemon Tree are very sweet smelling and do need to be pollinated by hand. To pollinate, use a small paint brush and rub the pollen within the flower. Fruit will ripen in approximately 6 to 9 months.

Most trees we sell are provided with a 3 Year Warranty against death that provides a one-time replacement. The warranty will not be honored if we find during our investigation that the tree has not been properly cared for while under the customer's possession or if the tree has been planted in the ground for zones 8 or less. With that in mind, we do realize that honest mistakes are sometimes made and for this we reserve the right to make warranty approval decisions on a case by case basis. If you have purchased a tree from us within the last three years that has died, please email us at email@example.com. Include a clear photo of the tree that has died along with your original order information, including order number and name of the original purchaser. Also, include your current shipping address and phone number. If you want to use a different email address in your order than the one you contact us from, then also include that as well. Explain any issues you had while caring for the tree, including what you believe caused the death. We may request further information from you to complete your request.

Shipping & Handling for each tree for warranty replacements is as follows: 1-2 Year Old; $22.75, 2-3 Year Old; $31.79, 3-4 Year Old; $35.99, 4-5 Year Old; $41.99. Damaged leaves are not covered under this warranty. This is a cosmetic issue that does not affect the health of the plant. It's a natural way that trees and shrubs protect themselves when exposed to heat or darkness. Just trim off any yellow or dried leaves and new foliage should start growing.
Lemoncitrustree.com under no circumstances implies or expresses any warranty as to the production of the plants sold.
