This listing is for one Lemon tree seedling - 2 to 4 inches tall.
THIS IS NOT A MEYER LEMON!
The lemon tree is a wonderful citrus plant that is native to Asia. There is documentation that the lemon was brought over from Asia to Europe in the first century. And from then on, it has become a culinary delight, from its peel to the seed. The Plant itself has many health benefits as well. The leaves can be ground up and used as a tea for stress relief. Plus as an indoor plant it creates wonderful oxygen to help clean the air. We have three big lemon trees inside our home, and walking past them creates an aromatic atmosphere of citrus. It is truly delightful.
These are all grown from seed and are of a high production commercial variety. Lemon trees and most fruit trees take 5 to 10 years to become mature enough to produce fruit. In theory the plant will produce when the root structure is big enough to support fruit production and the entire plant at once, but environmental factors can effect everything when it comes to fruit production. In short, 5 to 10 years is a basic projection of maturation. Variation will occur.
You do not want to let the lemon tree freeze or succumb to frost. It is a subtropical plant. If you live in a northern climate, like us, simply keep the plant in a size accorded pot. Start off small and work your way up to a 10 gallon pot, by that time you should have a lot of lemons to devour.
They love sun, or a sunny window. They also love to have somewhat drier soil. When on a watering regimen, thoroughly wet the soil and then allow to become somewhat dry to the touch before watering again. This is what makes lemons a wonderful house plant. They can be ignored and it won't kill them. We will send care instructions along with each order to ensure health and quality in your investment.
Your order will be shipped with sterile soil to ensure quality. Be prepared with the adequate size container to plant your new purchase in. We wash the roots before shipment and put fresh shipping soil to ensure moisture retention. This follows guidelines of shipping plants between states.
