Our trees 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.

Larger Trees  $150  SOLD OUT FOR 2019 ... 
 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.

      Mandarin citrus trees function very well as a potted patio tree, as well as indoors in a sunlite room with added humidity in winter months. Originating from Southeast Asia, Mandarins represent several classes of small orange varieties, which are usually thin skinned and seedless, or with very few seeds. 
     As the fruit is smaller than lemons, grapefruit or oranges, the time between blossom pollination and ripe orange colored fruit is much shorter. As the tree ages it is able to increase the amount of fruit is able to produce, as with all other citrus varieties. Our mandarin trees have ability to reach a height of 4 to 6 ft with smaller leaves that produce a much bushier growth habit than Meyer Lemon trees.
