Description: A hardy productive lemon bearing medium sized round yellow fruit, with juicy greenish yellow flesh and a few seeds. The fruit segments easy, and has a refreshing taste, with a lemonade-like flavour. The sweetness of the fruit increases the longer the fruit remains on the tree. An evergreen vigorous tree which produces fruit all year round.
Uses: Container plant in courtyards, feature tree in Mediterranean style gardens, espaliered along a sunny wall, or as an ornamental tree. This fruit is highly nutritious, rich in Vitamin C, refreshing, and makes an excellent drink with a tangy lemonade-like flavour. Ideal for cooking, juicing and garnishes.
Position: Plant in a sunny position with moist well-drained soil. Protect from strong winds.
Watering: Moderate water requirement.
Care: Water during the warmer months, especially when fruits are forming. In containers water every three to four days, more often in hot weather. Do not water the trunk. Fertilise in Spring and late Summer - early Autumn with a fertilizer high in nitrogen but do not allow to touch the trunk. Prune in late Spring, removing inside weak growth and to shape the tree.
Planting: Add organic matter to the soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from the container and place in the hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly, and water in well, even if the soil is moist. If planting in a container, use a premium potting mix. The container should be a minimum size of 60cm x 60cm.
