Citrus, Lemon ‘Dwarf Lisbon’

Lemon
Rutaceae
Evergreen, Edible fruit, Trees, Decorative fruit or berries

CITRUS

Low-heat requirement makes lemons widely adapted and especially appreciated in regions where sweet oranges and grapefruit won’t ripen. They do best year-round near the coast, though some varieties are very successful in the desert.

‘Dwarf Lisbon’

Plants sold under this name are simply ‘Lisbon’ lemons on a dwarf rootstock, so they top out at under 12 ft. high and wide. Fruit is practically identical to ‘Eureka’, but the tree is denser. Ripens mostly in fall but has some ripe fruit all year. More resistant to cold than ‘Eureka’ and better adapted to high heat; best lemon for Arizona. There is also a seedless form.
