    The Eureka Lemon Tree is one of California's principal lemon varieties. Popular in California gardens for its 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. This leading commercial lemon variety is a must have for your own garden if you want a true lemon with tart juice and flavorful skin that is ideal for culinary concoctions.

    Truly, Eureka lemons have zesty appeal. Their thick skin contains loads of natural oils that are full of flavor, but not as tart as its juice, making it the preferred choice for lemon zest.

    In California's mild climate, an Eureka Lemon tree is an excellent choice as an evergreen landscape tree with glossy, green leaves and the bonus of flavorful fruit and star-shaped, white flowers with a fragrance that can stir the senses. The Eureka Lemon plant is taller and more vigorous than the Meyer Lemon Tree, but its size is easy to maintain with minimal effort. The Eureka Lemon tree looks great in containers too and is the perfect gift that keeps giving.

    Add a Eureka Lemon Tree to your patio or garden and enjoy everything this amazing citrus tree has to offer.

    Semi-Dwarf vs. Standard citrus trees:
    The difference between a semi-dwarf tree and a standard tree is the mature height. Semi-dwarf citrus trees are smaller and grow to approximately two-thirds the size of a standard tree form. Depending on the position of the lower branches on the trunk, a semi-dwarf citrus can look like a bush with a short trunk, or a tree with a trunk.

    The mature height of an Eureka Lemon tree based on average growing conditions are:
    Semi-Dwarf tree: 10-15 ft. tall.
    Standard tree: 15-20 ft. tall.

    In containers, the Eureka lemon tree will be smaller and can easily be pruned to maintain a desired size.

    The mature height and fruit production of your citrus tree will depend on several environmental factors such as climate, light, soil type, texture, fertility and moisture, and pruning practices. Your citrus tree can easily be maintained at a smaller size with annual pruning.

    Plant care

    Your Eureka Lemon Tree needs full sun, moist and aerated soil. Fast drainage for this citrus is essential. Water the lemon tree regularly and consistently the first year for deep roots. Reduce frequency after the plant is established but water deeply. In spring, feed your Eureka Lemon Tree with Gardner & Bloome 8-4-2 Organic Citrus & Fruit Tree Fertilizer.  

    The Eureka Lemon Tree is easy to grow in the garden. Plant your lemon in a location that is wind-free, frost-free, and will receive at least 8 hours of full sun in a well draining soil that is porous and aerated.  You may need to add soil amendments like Gardner & Bloome Organics Planting Mix Premium Garden Soil or Kellogg Garden Organics Gromulch 2-in-1 Planting Mix & Mulch to improve drainage if your soil is a heavy clay. Protect your citrus tree from frost with the use of frost cloth when temperatures drop, or plant in a sheltered location close to a house or structure.

    Water your Eureka Lemon regularly and consistently the first year to develop deep roots. As the roots become established in the ground you may reduce the frequency. Avoid standing water and keep away from shallow frequent watering. In the ground, citrus prefer deep watering less frequently. So many factors will determine how often to water such as temperature, soil porosity, wind, and tree size. Fertilize with Gardner & Bloome 8-4-2 Organic Citrus & Fruit Tree Fertilizer in spring.

    Pruning is an essential investment for your Eureka Lemon and has several benefits such as promoting new growth, improving air circulation, and increased fruit production. During the spring months, prune erratic growth, damaged branches, or shape as desired.  All citrus trees are grafted and any new growth that appears below the graft union (generally 4-8 inches from the soil) should be removed immediately with clean, sharp pruners. These vigorous branches or “suckers” are from the root stock and rob energy from the fruiting wood.  To prevent damage or disease to your citrus tree, use pruners that are clean and sharp.

    Mulching can help conserve ground moisture and help suppress weed growth. Apply a layer of mulch that is 2 or 3 inches deep and keep mulch away from the base of the trunk (at least 6 inches) to avoid disease or rot.

    The Eureka Lemon Tree is a traditional and productive lemon tree that will be a welcome addition to any garden. It will be a favorite in your yard for years to come thanks to its large and juicy lemons. It is low-maintenance and drought-tolerant, making it an excellent choice for any gardener.
