Q: Can a Meyer Lemon Tree Grow in a pot?
A: Yes, a Meyer lemon tree can grow in a pot. In fact, container gardening is a popular way to grow citrus trees, including Meyer lemons. However, it's important to note that a Meyer lemon tree in a pot may need more regular watering and fertilizing than a tree planted in the ground. Additionally, the pot should be large enough to accommodate the tree as it grows, and should have drainage holes to prevent water from pooling at the bottom.
Q: When does the Meyer Lemon Tree produce fruit?
A: The tree typically blooms in the late winter or early spring and produces fruit throughout the year, with peak production occurring in the spring and fall. However, it's important to note that the tree may not produce fruit if it doesn't receive enough sunlight, water, or nutrients, or if it's not properly pollinated.
Q: Why are the leaves on my Meyer Lemon Tree turning yellow?
A: There are a few reasons why Meyer lemon tree leaves may turn yellow:
Overwatering or underwatering: If the tree is overwatered or underwatered, the roots may not be able to absorb enough water and nutrients, causing the leaves to turn yellow. Nutrient deficiencies: If the tree is not getting enough nitrogen, iron, or other essential nutrients, the leaves may turn yellow. Pests such as citrus leaf miner or diseases such as citrus greening can cause the leaves to turn yellow. Sunburn: If the tree is exposed to too much direct sunlight, the leaves can become sunburned and turn yellow. Cold Damage: Protect from cold temperatures below 32 ℉. If the tree is exposed to temperatures lower than its tolerance, the tree may shed leaves or the leaves may turn yellow.
Q: Do Meyer Lemon Trees lose their leaves in the winter?
A: Meyer lemon trees are evergreen and generally do not lose their leaves in the winter. However, they may shed some leaves during periods of drought, or if they are exposed to subfreezing temperatures or frost.
Q: How hardy is the Bearss Lime Tree?
A: Bearss Lime Tree is hardy to 32℉. Frost cloth may help protect your lemon tree if temperatures should fall below freezing.
Q: When is the best time to harvest Bearss limes?

Q: Do I need another lime tree to pollinate my Persian ‘Bearss’ Lime?
A: No, your Bearss Lime is self fertile and does not require cross pollination.
Q: Why is my Bearss lime rind yellow and not green?
A: In warmer tropical climates the fruit remains green, but in cooler climates of California the Bearss lime will turn yellow when ripe.
