Lemon Yen Ben

$39.99

A sport of ‘Lisbon’ lemon. A prolific producer of true, high quality, ovular, thin-skinned lemons with very acidic, pale greenish-yellow flesh and few seeds. High juice content and very tangy. Self fertile with fruit maturing in winter. Evergreen tree with glossy, green leaves and fragrant, creamy white blossoms in summer. Grows approximately 3m tall x 2.5m wide in 8 years.

One of the most hardy lemon cultivars. Protect from frosts while young, more tolerant once established and when mulched well. 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.
