The most popular of all frut trees for the home garden is the Lemon Tree. Easy to grow, lots of fruit and usually useful fruit as well.
Although they are not tolerant of cold, they can survive and fruit well in sheltered sunny positions.
If you live in the right climate, then the lemon tree would be the first fruit tree in most gardens.
If you lack space, look for a dwarf lemon tree, or perhaps try an espaliered type. (pictured below)
We also have seedless varieties such as the Eureka seedless, Californian Seedless and a few others. And of course the dwarf types, mostly grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock such as 'Flying Dragon'.
This is a thornless variety with medium sized fruit. The fruit is acidic, the tree is self pollinating
One of the most popular for commercial growers. An upright spreading tree, few seeds and an acidic fruit
This is a 'hybrid lemon', the Meyer Lemon is excellent for the home garden
Fast growing, thorny but excellent acidic fruit
Lemon trees are for sale online from the following growers
