Citrus x meyeri is a cross between a true (tart) lemon and either a mandarin or an orange. The result is a fruit that resembles a lemon but is rounder with a skin that is darker yellow and fruit that is sweeter with less acidity. Basically, it's delicious. The flowers are sweetly fragrant. Meyer lemons can produce year-round. Grow outdoors in the warm months. Treat as a houseplant in winter. Watch for mites and scale indoors. All of our citrus are grafted onto C-35 citrange, trifoliate orange, or other semi-dwarfing rootstock which confer good hardiness and production while reducing overall tree size.
