Meyer Lemon Tree | Improved Meyer Lemon Tree For Sale


The Meyer Improved Lemon Tree is a hybrid between a common lemon tree and a mandarin orange tree. This lemon tree variety has a spreading habit and is nearly thornless. The fragrant blooms of this lemon tree then turn to medium-sized, orange-yellow, juicy sweet-tart lemons that are in season in fall/spring.

Citrus x meyeri or commonly called the Meyer Lemon tree is a gorgeous evergreen citrus tree originally from China that is a hybrid between a common lemon tree and a mandarin orange tree. It was first discovered and sent to the United States in 1908 by Dutch horticulturist and botanist Frank Meyer who was working for the United States Department of Agriculture.

Unfortunately the original Meyer Lemon Trees were found to be susceptible to a devastating virus called Citrus Tristeza and eventually became symptomless carriers of the said virus, which infected and killed millions of citrus trees across the United States and all over the world. Because of this, most Meyer lemon trees have to be destroyed. A surviving and virus-free Meyer lemon tree was then discovered by Don Dillon in 1950 and was later certified and released by the University of California as the “Improved Meyer Lemon Tree” in 1975.

The Improved Meyer Lemon Tree is cold hardy and best grows in US Department of Agriculture USDA hardiness zones 8 to 11. It is fairly vigorous, shrubby and somewhat small in size upon reaching maturity – standard Meyer lemon trees can grow as tall as 6’ to 10’ while the dwarf lemon tree can grow up to 4’ to 6’ in height.

This lemon tree variety has a spreading habit and is nearly thornless making it a great citrus tree to plant if you have kids, be it indoors or outdoors. This citrus tree blooms purple-tinted flowers all year round but blooms are more concentrated in spring or fall. The fragrant blooms then turn to medium-sized, orange-yellow, juicy sweet-tart lemons that are in season in fall/spring.

Citrus Tree Care

Dwarf citrus trees and standard-sized citrus trees need almost the same type and amount of care.

  • Planting Location – Citrus trees are generally hardy but grow best in warm, sunny spots that have well-draining soil. Meyer Lemon Trees are best grown in USDA plant hardiness zone 8 through 11. In colder areas, it is advisable that you plant lemon trees next to your house or under an eave to get frost protection or plant them in a container, especially the dwarf citrus tree, since they are well adapted to container growing.
  • Watering – Once your newly bought citrus trees arrive, you need to replant them either on the ground or in bigger pots. Newly replanted Improved Meyer lemon trees should be watered deeply every 2 to 3 days for the first two weeks. Keep in mind that growing citrus trees like moisture but not wet feet. Once the citrus trees are established, you can cut back on watering to once every 7-10 days. Also, allow the soil to get dry between watering to avoid lemon trees standing in water.
  • Pruning –Citrus trees seldom need elaborate trimming or pruning, however, if you wish to maintain the shape of your Meyer lemon tree you may want to clip off braches that are too long a year after replanting or once the trees have reached the height of 3’ to 4’. To keep it healthy, prune leggy, damaged, diseased and dead branches back to the base of the trunk in late winter to avoid any disruption of the winter harvest or as you deem needed. You should also keep an eye out for suckers growing at the base of the tree as they would only compete for water and nutrients your tree needs in order to grow, establish, and bear fruit.
  • Fertilization –Meyer lemon trees and other growing citrus trees need citrus fertilizer to grow healthy and become prolific fruit bearers. They should be fed ammonium sulfate fertilizer for citrus trees balanced to 21-0-0. A cup of citrus tree fertilizer is a must for the first year, should be broken down into four equal parts, and applied between February to August to ensure the lemon tree’s healthy growth cycle. It should be mixed with water then poured under the canopy of the tree where it can be absorbed by the roots. Follow the package instructions and do not overfeed to avoid burning the root and harming the tree.
  • Pollination Assistance –Improved Meyer Lemon Trees are self-fruitful or “self-pollinators” and do not need other citrus trees or a second Meyer Lemon tree to pollinate and bear fruits. Planted outdoors, bees undertake lemon tree pollination by buzzing from flower to flower, but if planted inside the house or greenhouse you need to help your tree by manually pollinating it by hand. To pollinate by hand, use a small paintbrush and touch the tip of the brush to the center of the flower to collect the ripe pollen. Go to the next flower and touch the center using the tip of the same brush to transfer the collected pollen and repeat the process for the rest of the flowers.

Fruit & Harvesting


The Meyer Lemon is not a true lemon because it is a hybrid between a lemon and a mandarin. It is medium in size and has an oblong to elliptical shape. Its base is rounded but sometimes faintly necked and furrowed.

Meyer lemons have fragrant, yellow-orange thin rind that is smooth and tightly adherent to the flesh. The rind also has a more complex fragrance to it than regular lemons and emits a spicy bergamot scent that smells like an herb or spice.

The moderately seedy flesh is apportioned in 10 segments and is tender, juicy, sweeter and less acidic compared to true lemons.

Accepted as a lemon substitute, Meyer lemons are great for juicing and baking pastries and pie like Lemon Meringue Pie. It can also be used to make alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, flavoring for sweet and savory dishes, salad and other recipes requiring lemon. Just keep in mind that when substituting regular lemon with Meyer lemon, it has a sweeter and less acidic taste and can make a recipe turn out differently so you may want to go slowly and start with small amount then taste before adding the rest.


Meyer lemons are green while still growing and take several months to ripen and turn yellow. You can tell that it is time to harvest your lemons when the rind has turned yellow, have a slightly glossy appearance and the fruits have reached 2 to 3 inches in size.

You can also pick a fruit to test its juiciness. If there is not enough juice leave the fruits on the tree for a few weeks then do another test.

Growing Zones


The Improved Meyer Lemon Tree can grow up to 6’ to 10’ in height when planted in the ground but tend to be smaller when planted in a pot. This citrus tree is an ever-flowering and ever-bearing tree and blooms and fruits intermittently throughout the year, but main bloom season is in spring/fall and fruit season in fall/spring. Also, although hardy and cold tolerant, Meyer Lemon Trees need to be protected when temperature goes below 32º F.

Pests and Diseases

Meyer lemon trees are essentially pest resistant but are sometimes attacked by citrus thrips, aphids and leaf miners.


  • Citrus Thrips are yellow-orange insects that lay eggs on new shoots or tender leaf tissue. You will know that your tree is infested if you see scabby scars on the lemon rind. Citrus Thrips can be controlled with beneficial insects like lacewings, spiders and minute pirate bugs. You can also use botanical insecticides to safely treat heavy infestation.
  • Aphids and leaf miners can weaken the citrus tree and result in reduced or low fruit yield. You can defend you tree and eradicate these insects by using horticultural oil spray or insecticidal soap spray. You can also make use of Tangle Foot to get rid of these bugs.


Improved Meyer lemon trees are disease tolerant but are not a hundred per cent free of all types of diseases.

  • Brown Rot – a fungal disease that causes browning and rotting of parts of the tree. The fungus is commonly transmitted thru splashing of infected soil onto low hanging fruits during heavy rains. It usually starts as a small discolored spot that quickly spreads across the surface of infected fruit.

Brown Rot is usually prevented rather than treated. Sanitation is the best prevention for brown rot. Trimming trees away from the ground, removing any infected fruit and debris around the tree and under the canopy and use of copper salts are great preventive measures.

  • Citrus Canker – Citrus canker is a bacterial disease that gets transmitted via rain and wind. It leaves lesions on the leaves, stems and fruits of infected citrus trees. It also causes premature leaf and fruit drop.

Sanitation and prevention are the only way to manage citrus canker. You can use copper spray on your Meyer Lemon tree before forecast strong wind and heavy rains starts. Unfortunately, once a tree gets infected there is no way to cure it and it needs to be eradicated.


Is it true that I should cut off the branches that have thorns?

No. There is no reason to cut off branches because they have thorns. You can prune away some of the actual larger thorns if you wish, by using sharp side-cut hand pruners. The branches with thorns also produce valuable leaves and eventually fruit. Thorns are a normal part of the growing process for a healthy lemon tree. Thorns are a lemon tree’s natural defense against climbing pests.

Are your Improved Meyer Lemon Trees organically grown and shipped?

All of our Improved Meyer Lemon trees are Non-Gmo. To prevent the spread of destructive insects between states and regions, and to comply with strict USDA plant shipping regulations, we are required to apply a mild chemical treatment to all trees shipped over state lines.

Can I grow my Improved Meyer lemon tree inside?

Yes. Be sure to plant it in a large enough pot, and give the Improved Meyer Lemon tree as much sun as possible by locating it in a south-facing window. You can also supplement lighting by using grow lights. Also Improved Meyer lemon trees must be watered well and allowed to drain. A large basin under a pot with good drainage holes can help in this regard. If possible, you could also move the Improved Meyer Lemon tree outside to water it.

What is the difference between a regular Meyer Lemon Tree and an Improved Meyer Lemon Tree?

The Improved Meyer Lemon Tree has been selectively bred to be more disease resistant. The growth habits, size, fruit size, and fruit taste are all the same for Meyer Lemon Trees and Improved Meyer Lemon Trees.

When should I plant my new Improved Meyer Lemon Tree?

If you are planting your Improved Meyer Lemon tree in a pot to live indoors, you can plant it at anytime. If you are planting it in the ground outdoors, then plant it in the early spring after all danger of frost has passed. In USDA Zones 8 to 11, a good time to plant is mid to late March.

When should I fertilize my Improved Meyer Lemon Tree?

Fertilize your Improved Meyer lemon tree once every 4 to 6 weeks from February to August. Follow the fertilizer manufacturer’s directions for the amounts based on the tree size. Always use a fertilizer formulated and designated as citrus fertilizer. Fertilizers that are made for citrus and avocado, or citrus and mango, are suitable as well.

Do I need two Improved Meyer lemon trees for them to grow fruit?

No. Improved Meyer lemon trees are self-pollinating, and will grow fruit with no additional pollinator. But two trees grown together will usually produce more fruit than a single tree.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: It is best to plant the Improved Meyer Lemon Tree in a warm, sunny area where the soil drains well. Six hours (or more) of direct sun is best for the tree. Planting next to a house or under an eave will provide some frost protection. Remember to water the Improved Meyer Lemon Tree deeply once every seven to ten days in midsummer (newly planted trees may need more frequent watering until established), and water less often if it rains or if the weather is cool.

If you're planting in a container, select one that is 1 to 2 pot sizes larger than what it initially arrived. Then, fill with a well-draining cactus or citrus soil, 2 inches of compost, water well, and place near a South-facing window.

*Note: The leaves of the Meyer Lemon can be toxic to pets.

2. Watering: Allow the soil to dry down to 2 inches between waterings.

While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, citrus leaves love humidity. Indoor Citrus will do best if misted daily, especially when you are running your heat during cooler months. You can also use a humidifier or fill your pot's saucer with rocks and add water; place your plant on the rocks ensuring the bottom of the pot is above the waterline.

3. Pollination: For indoor plants, simply take a small, dry, fine-tipped paintbrush and stick it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated. Do this once daily and don’t wash the paintbrush until after the blooms have been pollinated. The bloom will fall off naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

4. Fertilizing: Fertilize regularly with a high-nitrogen blend each month between April and September.

FGT Tip: Yellowing leaves may indicate the need for more fertilizer.

5. Pruning: Prune as needed to maintain your Lemon Tree's shape. Clip off any branches that are too long. Remove branches growing toward the trunk of the tree instead of away from it. This will maintain airflow between the branches.


How long does it take for a Meyer Lemon Tree to produce fruit?

It depends on how old your Meyer Lemon Tree is to start with. Typically, a Meyer Lemon Tree that is around 3-4 feet tall will be fruit-bearing age. As your tree gets more acclimated and older, it will be able to produce a larger harvest.

Do Meyer Lemons need full sun?

Meyer Lemon Trees do best when they are provided at least 6-8 hours of full sunlight per day. Too little sunlight will result in lack of fruit and slow growth.

Can Meyer Lemon Trees grow indoors?

Your Meyer Lemon can grow indoors as long as you provide the proper care and climate. When planted indoors, make sure to hand-pollinate the flowers to ensure fruiting, since they will not have access to outdoor pollinators.

When do you water Meyer Lemon Trees?

Allow the soil to dry down to 2 inches between waterings. While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, citrus leaves love humidity. Indoor Citrus will do best if misted daily, especially when you are running your heat during cooler months. You can also use a humidifier or fill your pot's saucer with rocks and add water; place your plant on the rocks ensuring the bottom of the pot is above the waterline.

Lemon tree, cv. Meyer | Room lemon, (lemon tree) | Exotic citrus plants

Meyer lemon belongs to hybrid forms of citrus fruits. It is one of the most common among lovers of citrus lemons. Supposed to be a natural hybrid between an orange and a lemon. This variety was taken by the American botanist Meyer from China to the United States and was incorrectly named after him there. Peking lemon (the second name of the Meyer lemon) is distinguished by dwarf growth, a compact crown shape, well leafy, has very rare small spines. The leaves are dark green, denser than those of a common lemon, and when rubbed in the hands, they emit almost no lemon flavor at all. The flowers are smaller than other varieties of lemon, very fragrant, arranged in clusters. The fruits are medium in size, differ from a real lemon in a more rounded shape and an orange peel, reminiscent of an orange. The peel is thin, well separated from the pulp. The flesh is very tender, yellowish-orange in color, with an abundant juice content, much higher than that of an ordinary lemon. The amount of juice on average reaches 51.5% of the total weight of the fruit. The acidity of the juice is about 3.7%. The pulp has a higher sugar content and a lower acid content than other varieties of lemons. Meyer lemon fruits do not have the characteristic lemon flavor. The taste and smell are very peculiar and quite pleasant. Meyer lemon fruits are light yellow-orange in color and have a thin peel.

Meyer lemon was recommended by Soviet scientists for cultivation on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus due to frost resistance and good taste of the fruit. The disadvantage of fruits is that they cannot be stored for a long time, which makes them difficult to transport. It is one of the main varieties of lemon for trench culture. You can buy a meyer lemon from me, which is grafted onto a powerful rootstock, allowing you to get a beautifully shaped standard lemon. Meyer lemon bought in this way will grow rapidly and it will probably get rid of the so-called "Meyer lemon disease" inherent in Meyer lemons.

How to water

As your Meyer lemon seedling grows, you will learn what it likes and dislikes. You will no doubt worry about when and how to water it. This is the most frequently asked question, so here are three simple tips that show that doing it right is not as difficult as you think.

1. How dry is the compost?

This is the quickest and easiest way to check if your citrus needs water. Just touch the compost, if it seems dry, your plant needs to drink. Easy, right? Now that this has become part of your routine, you might want to occasionally try our next tip.

2. Follow your instincts.

Soon enough, you will instinctively know when to water a plant by simply lifting it up and gauging its weight.
You will find that as your citrus grows, you will gain confidence and knowledge. Trust us, take care of your plant, and there is nothing to worry about.

It is very important to water your citrus fruit every time you decide to water it. After watering, it will become heavy.

The Kumquat family requires less watering than all other citrus varieties.
Citrus Lisa and Livia need more water than usual. It is important not to allow the soil to dry out completely.


This is the more technical part, but still very simple. For every citrus beauty, it's more than just skin. Like any plant, or any of us for that matter, will require proper nutrition. Nutrition is needed so that citrus fruits can grow, look their best, and produce tasty fruits.

This means that from May to September you will need to add some fertilizer to the water every time you water your citrus fruits. For the rest of the year, fertilize in the same way once a month.

Because your lemon needs special micronutrients, be sure to use a fertilizer specifically designed for citrus fruits. Make sure you are using the correct ratio of fertilizer to water.


A spoiled plant is a happy, healthy plant that will give you juicy fruit yields many times over. So when your lemon seedling starts to lose its original shape, prune it carefully to encourage the bushes to grow.

However, in order not to disturb the natural flowering cycle, pruning should only be carried out during the summer months from May to August. Be sure to use a good sharp pruner.


Although the plant does not require much maintenance, in spring your Meyer lemon loves to feel fresh compost around its roots. This will help your plant feel comfortable and help it grow.

There are two approaches to this: you can either transplant into a larger pot, or simply replace some of the compost in the original pot.

1. Move to a larger potty. You will need to choose a new home for your citrus with a pot about 2cm wider than the original. The larger the pot, the more room for roots to grow.
Then put some fresh compost in the bottom of the pot to raise the citrus to the correct level at the top. Then add some fresh compost around the edges, pressing it in gently with your fingers so that there are no air gaps. Remember - try not to compact the new soil too much.

2. Spring cleaning. Remove the citrus from the pot and gently brush some of the compost around the root ball. You can trim the roots a little if you like. After that, pour new compost into the pot and refill the plant, trying to fill in the gaps on the sides.

After each transplant, you will need to water the lemon seedling well.

Pests and diseases

Inspecting your plants daily does wonders. Examine their leaves regularly from above and below and treat any harmful creepers immediately. The sooner they are caught, the more chances you have to get rid of them. In the early stages, insects can be removed manually by picking the leaves or spraying them with a stream of water.

Look closely to see if your citrus has any of the following symptoms. These are the most common pests of citrus fruits. Many of these pests are so small that they can only be seen with a magnifying glass.


The red spider mite is so small that its physical presence goes unnoticed. The leaves are slightly discolored. There are other types of spider mites with similar symptoms. Cobwebs may appear around the branches.


The symptoms are very easy to identify. As the name suggests, it looks like a white web. The web is very similar to cotton. There are other similar types of mealy insects.


The larvae feed from inside the leaves between two pages and create transparent galleries with irregular spiral contours.


These white larvae remain in the mix and become fly after a few days.


The green caterpillar is a pest that feeds on plant leaves. This insect is quite large and noticeable on the plant.


Whitefly eggs are laid by the females on the underside of the leaf and are yellow. A very severe infestation causes leaf wilt, leaf drop and fruit loss.


This pest is directly associated with delicate plant tissues, namely developing leaves and flower buds, young leaves and flowers. Colonies are usually found on the bottom page of leaves.


Brownish caterpillar that eats the tender parts of branches, preventing the juice from escaping. The affected part of the plant looks brownish and dry.


Moth caterpillar hides in buds where it feeds and destroys flowers.
