Meyer Lemon Bush 3 Gallon Pot

Meyer lemon, citrus meyeri, is native to China and is a cross between a mandarin and a true lemon (Eureka).  Once just grown as an ornamental, it is now cultivated and appreciated for its  small delicate. slightly sweet tasting fruit. They have a smooth, thin rind with a deep yellow hue. Their pulp is pale orange, with a sweet, floral taste, which makes them excellent to use in dessert recipes. 

They are a more compact plant that a regular lemon and have deeper green foliage. 

They like to be kept evenly moist, not wet, and fed regularly when in bud / bloom.  Bright light is essential when keeping in the home  and scout for pests such as white flies and spider mites.
