Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

An excellent variety producing large, thick skinned lemons equal in quality to those purchased from a supermarket - and ideal for adding to a gin and tonic! Set against a foil of glossy, dark foliage, the delicate clusters of tiny white flowers fill the air with their delicious fragrance from April to June. The fruits of Lemon 'Eureka' may take up to a year to ripen but are well worth the wait. Lemons can be harvested as they ripen and once picked, will keep for up to 2 weeks.


Lemon trees are capable of surviving brief periods below 0C, but are best grown in large containers and moved indoors to a bright frost free position from autumn to spring. This tree is self fertile and will not need a pollination companion. Propagated onto 'PS' rootstock and supplied as a large specimen bush (often in fruit) in a 5 litre pot.
Eventual height: 3m (9'). Spread: 2.5m (8').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Stand citrus trees outside from May to October. Water freely in summer and mist leaves daily to increase humidity and discourage pests. Feed with citrus plant fertiliser every 2 weeks. Move plants indoors from October to a bright, frost free position (4-12°C) away from cold draughts and radiators. Reduce watering in winter but do not let the plant dry out completely. Too much or too little water may cause the fruits to drop.
Plant citrus trees in patio containers in a mix of ericaceous compost and neutral, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the plant at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in a frost free position in full sun.

Lemon Tree 2017-05-03

I am so keen to have a lemon tree so purchased the Eureka tree. It has arrived and is now in our orangery, off the floor as it has underfloor heating. However, I am concerned that the leaves are starting to drop off it and despite the instructions saying it should be potted in an ericaceous soil the pot it has arrived in is pretty well packed and doesnt look like ericaceous soil. Should I have repotted it when it arrived? I am misting regularly and also watering once a week. Fingers crossed it survives.

I bought a lemon eureka tree as a bit day present for my wife. It arrived on 31 March 2015, well packaged and looking healthy. It wasn't the cheapest but having taken advantage of other offers to avoid paying a delivery charge I was happy with overall deal. The instructions on this site were easy to follow and it only needed feeding and watering once per week so it was very low maintenance. As it is quite heavy in its pot it has stayed in the conservatory all year. We have now used the first lemon for G&Ts. It seemed the right thing to do! It had an amazing fresh smell and flavour. There are three more ready to pick but they stay firmest left on the tree until needed. Lemon meringue pie next I think.

T&M replied on 2016-04-15: Thank you very much for your review. I am glad to hear that you have had such fantastic results with your tree, and appreciate you letting us know. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.
