Bearss Lemon Tree - 24-36" Tall - Live Citrus Plant - Gallon Pot - Grafted
- Grafted - Standard Rootstock
- These trees are 2-3 feet tall
- We grow our trees in a 4 inch square pot that is 14" tall. The pot is equivalent to a “1 gallon” capacity. This “sleeve” is perfect for shipping because you get the entire root ball and soil rather than “bare root.” Getting the soil with the tree greatly increases your success with your new citrus tree.
The Bearss Lemon is a true lemon tree with very juicy, acidic fruit and high lemon oil in its peel. The trees are vigorous, thorny and very sensitive to cold! Bearss Lemons outproduce both Eureka and Lisbon in Florida. This cultivar was selected in the Bearss grove near Lutz, Florida in 1952. The parent tree is said to have been planted in 1892. They are believed to originate in Italy.
If tartness is the way you want to, a Bearss Lemon Tree is a great choice. The Bearss Lemon is one of the easiest true lemons to grow at home. It has a lot of great things going for it: for one thing, it has more juice than many lemon varieties of the same size. It also has a higher concentration of lemon oil in its skin, which makes it great for zesting. It’s very similar to the lemons you’ll find in a grocery store (usually Eureka or Lisbon lemons), but the tree grows a lot faster than either of those trees and is much more productive.
Bearss Lemon Trees have fresh, fragrant blossoms, and they produce fruit through the summer and fall. They do have few seeds and a few lemon tree thorns. Bearss lemon tree care is fairly easy, but the trees are prone to certain lemon tree diseases (such as scab, greasy spot and oil spotting). They’re also very sensitive to cold, so you want to make sure never to leave them outdoors when a freeze is expected.
