The Meyer lemon plant is prized among popular varieties for its slightly sweeter, distinctive flavor. It has a delightful hint of tangerine. Ripening the fruit does not require as much heat as ripening other lemon varieties take. And when a Meyer lemon ripens, the soft skin takes on orange hues. Typically, Meyer lemon trees can grow to be 6 to 10 feet if planted outside. As an indoor potted plant, these trees will reach about 4-6' tall. Your Meyer lemon plant will need to be moved indoors during the cooler months, but the plant is easy and compact, so it's not a problem.

Prior to yielding lemons, the Meyer lemon tree sprouts sweetly-scented white blossoms that will be sure to brighten up any space. The Meyer lemon tree plant usually flowers twice a year and the blooms are fragrant, which is a lovely way to freshen up the home in winter.

This self-pollinating delight will make the perfect addition to any space. Citrus limon x 'Meyeri'
