Our little trees are grafted to flower and produce fruit while growing outdoors during our Canadian summers and indoors during colder winter months. Each tree is able to produce an adequate amount of fruit each year, increasing in size and productivity as it matures.

 These trees are 3 - 4 yr old trees already transplanted into the largest fabric pot necessary for their growth. Most trees have potential to  reach 4 - 6 ft with pruning. They need to live indoors in a sunny location in our Canadian winter months with option of moving outside onto a wind-free patio/deck area in summer. They require no re-potting, like the younger trees. However, they do still require adequate fertilizer for their leaves and soil, which we provide with our Fertilizer Packs. There are only a limited number of this size of tree available each year, sold on a first-come-first-served basis, therefore we cannot reserve ahead of time without payment. Thanks for your understanding.

       Native to China, this hybrid of lemon and orange parentage, is sweeter and less acidic than true lemons and was introduced to the USA in 1908, by Frank Meyer, an agricultural explorer. The fruit has deep yellow skin; thinner than other lemons and edible, with a floral scent. 
        The Improved Meyer Lemon is disease resistant and is popular with chefs who incorporate its unique sweetness and fragrance into their recipes. Its hardiness and ornamental characteristics make the Meyer attractive to growers and gardeners. Although it is tolerant of cold, it still needs to be covered or brought indoors when temperature drop below 20 Fahrenheit. Container growing is successful with its ultimate height reaching 6 feet with our particular rootstock.

    A backyard tree for most households in Thailand, the Kieffer Lime leaf, zest and juice supply great flavor to enhance many Thai, Cambodian and Indonesian foods. Lime leaves are dark green and glossy, with a double-lobe.
       This lime has dark green fruit with a bumpy surface and the peel contains high concentration of aromatic oils, indispensable in many curry pastes. The zest imparts a piquant flavor to fried fish cakes, blending in with spicy stews. In more 'soupy' dishes, the leaf is added whole or in smaller pieces, the same way Bay leaves would be used.  In salads the leaves are cut in fine, needle-like slivers. The rind is used sparingly; usually grated finely then blended as a paste with other ingredients such as lemon grass. Plant Care
