Sweet Lemon Tree Information and Care

Sweet Lemons come from evergreen citrus trees. The trees produce an abundance of fragrant white blossoms year round. Grow in full sun, well draining soils, and water regularly until trees establish. Dwarf sweet lemon trees do well in pots and planters because their center of gravity is low.

Feed with organic citrus food fertilizers during the growing season for healthy growth and fruit production. Also, trim your trees in the winter and thin in the summer. Many home owners keep their citrus relatively small, under 10 feet tall and wide, however trees can grow larger.
