Citrus lemon Genoa

$39.99

A beautiful, evergreen tree that produces glossy, green leaves and fragrant, creamy white blossoms in summer. Bushy, dense and nearly thornless. Grows approximately 3m high x 2.5m wide.

This true lemon cultivar produces good sized, near seedless, juicy fruit with the main crop in summer. Taste is very tangy and sour. Self fertile.

Quite a cold hardy variety, though should receive protection from frosts while young. More tolerant once established and when mulched well. Good heat resistance. Ideal in a full sun position with fertile, well drained soil. Heavy feeder requiring a high nitrogen fertiliser through spring and summer. Water regularly during fruit development in hot, dry spells. Prune in spring.
