Meyer Lemon Trees

The most popular lemon tree for the home garden is the Meyer Lemon. This is a natural hybrid and is a sweeter lemon than other varieties. The golden yellow fruit is less acidic that others and the tree itself is naturally smaller growing with a natural spreading habit.

This is a reliable producer of fruit and in a good climate will produce lemons almost year round.

Problems

Yellow leaves

This can be caused by a magnesium deficiency, it can also be caused by over watering. The solution is to use a specialist citrus fertilizer and to ensure that the tree is well drained and you do not over water. However a few yellow leaves are natural, some leaves do die and drop off over time.

Other problems

  • Poor drainage
  • Over fertilizing
  • Lack of sun
  • Gall wasp
  • The Meyer lemon is a little more susceptible to virus diseases than other varieties. However the 'Improved Meyer Lemon' is said to be more virus resistant.
