    Eureka Lemon Tree is a productive and traditional lemon tree that looks great in any garden or landscape as a tree, bush, or espalier. The Eureka Lemon Tree is well-known for producing large, juicy, acidic lemons that are ideal for cooking, juicing, and preserving. This is the best lemon for zesting with its thick peel that is full of flavor. These fragrant lemons are perfect for culinary creations and cocktails.

    This is the leading commercial lemon variety! Eureka is a true lemon with tart juice and a zesty peel that is full of flavor. Highly productive, this vigorous, nearly thornless lemon tree has beautiful bright yellow fruit with few seeds. The typical harvest period is fall through spring but you may have lemons nearly year round. The evergreen Eureka standard tree can reach a height of 20 feet and has glossy, dark green leaves.

    The Eureka Lemon Tree is a self-fertile and easy-to-care-for tree that is suitable for both experienced and inexperienced gardeners. It can grow in a variety of soil types as long as they are well-drained, and it prefers full sun to partial shade. It is drought-tolerant and heat-tolerant.

    Order your Eureka Lemon Tree from Plants Express today and add some tasty, fragrant, and nutritious fruit to your garden! It will be a favorite in your yard for years to come thanks to its large and juicy lemons. It is a traditional and productive citrus tree that will be a welcome addition to any garden.

    Eureka Lemon vs. Meyer Lemon
    The Eureka Lemon Tree and the Meyer Lemon Tree are two popular lemon varieties. Both trees produce large, juicy lemons, but they differ in some important ways.

    The Eureka Lemon Tree is a traditional, classic lemon tree that produces large, juicy tart lemons and is the leading commercial lemon variety. The Eureka lemons are thicker-skinned (good for zesting), more acidic (good for marinades), and have a few more seeds than the Meyer lemon. The Eureka Lemon Tree is more vigorous and has an abundance of lemons compared to the Meyer lemon tree.

    The Meyer Lemon Tree is a sweeter and less acidic variety of lemon tree. The Meyer tree is smaller and slower growing than the Eureka Lemon Tree. Meyer lemons are round shaped, thinner-skinned, sweeter, and less acidic than Eureka lemons.

    If you want to grow citrus fruit in your yard, Eureka and Meyer Lemon trees are both excellent choices. It all depends on your preferences, whether you prefer a sweeter or more acidic lemon flavor, and how big you want your tree to grow.

    Plant care

    Citrus needs full sun, moist soil, and aerated soil. Fast drainage is essential. Water regularly and consistently the first year for deep roots. Reduce frequency after plant is established but water deeply. In spring, feed with a balanced fertilizer in spring and prune erratic growth or shape as desired.
