The Ponderosa Lemon Tree is the answer to the problem of running out of lemons. Each fruit is 6 to 8 inches across, and one gives enough juice for a whole pie. This tree flowers and fruits all year round, so you will always have ripe fruit available. It is an attractive evergreen bush or tree, with rich-green glossy leaves and fragrant flowers that are white flushed with purple. Grow it outdoors in frost-free areas, or grow it anywhere in a pot, bringing it indoors during cold weather, and growing it outdoors for the rest of the year. With its large, knobby fruit this tree is a real talking-point, and it can be used everywhere you need a lemon for drinks or cooking.

  • Huge lemons all year round
  • Just one fruit makes a whole pie
  • Attractive purple-flushed white fragrant flowers
  • Easily grown in a container anywhere in the country
  • Evergreen tree is always attractive all year round

Grow the Ponderosa Lemon Tree in a pot with drainage holes. Use a potting soil blended for citrus trees, or a soil made from 2 parts houseplant soil and 1 part of cactus soil. Use a citrus fertilizer such as Bio-tone® Citrus Tone for the best result and abundant fruit. Water only when the top few inches of soil are dry, and bring your tree indoors when the night temperatures reach 50 degrees. Grow it in a sunny place, and indoors it grows best in cooler temperatures between 55 and 65 degrees.
