Fruit
If your Bay Area clients are looking for citrus fruit all year long with delicious, bright orange-yellow fruit, dark green leaves, and intensely fragrant flowers, then a Citrus × meyeri | Meyer Lemon could be a great solution. The Meyer lemon fruit is a rich orange-yellow in color and is thinner-skinned and sweeter tasting than the more acidic lemon varieties such as Eureka or Lisbon which are the most common lemons found in grocery stores. Meyer lemon trees are self-pollinated and grow to about 10′ tall. They also make an excellent hedge because they need little or no pruning. These hard-working trees can also tolerate colder weather than most citrus and require no minimum amount of chill time to bear fruit. In severe cold below 20°F, they should be covered to avoid frost damage. Meyer lemon trees perform best when planted in sandy loam and they prefer moist soil that’s not soggy. Allow adequate dry out time between waterings to prevent disease. They also benefit from generous additions of mulch for conserving water and improving soil quality.
