What to Know About the Tree

The Ponderosa Lemon Tree is a stunning evergreen that will add a touch of Mediterranean beauty to your garden. Its glossy, dark green leaves and fragrant white blossoms make it a sight to behold. This tree has a unique feature – it goes dormant during the winter months, allowing it to conserve energy and prepare for a bountiful harvest in the spring. With its strong, sturdy branches, it can withstand windy conditions, making it an excellent choice for coastal areas.

Harvest Season

The excitement begins in spring when the Ponderosa Lemon Tree comes alive with an abundance of vibrant yellow lemons. As the lemons mature, they develop a thick, bumpy skin that adds to their unique charm. The harvest season is a time of joy and anticipation as you watch your tree transform into a lemon oasis, ready to provide you with an endless supply of fresh, tangy fruits.

Fruitscaping™ with Lemon Trees

Experience the vibrant beauty and zest of the Mediterranean in your own garden with our Lemon Trees. These sunny, citrus trees are not only famed for their tangy, nutritious fruits but also for their decorative appeal, enhancing your garden with a splash of year-round color.

Lemon trees are ideal for a variety of garden settings – they can be grown in the ground in warmer climates and in containers in cooler regions, making them versatile and adaptable to various environments. These trees, with their shiny green foliage, fragrant blossoms, and bright yellow fruits, can serve as the centerpiece of your garden, patio, or indoor space.

Lemon trees offer more than just visual beauty; they provide a delightful, refreshing harvest. Fresh, homegrown lemons add a tangy twist to your culinary creations – from beverages and salads to desserts and preserves. What’s more, they’re packed with vitamins and antioxidants, promoting a healthy lifestyle.

These evergreen trees are a delight throughout the year. The glossy leaves provide a verdant backdrop, while the perfumed white blossoms herald the arrival of spring. As the seasons progress, the blossoms turn into green fruits, maturing to a vibrant yellow. Even in the depths of winter, the fruit-laden branches provide a burst of cheer.

Growing and caring for a lemon tree is straightforward and rewarding. Lemon trees prefer well-drained soil and a sunny spot. Regular watering and feeding with a citrus-specific fertilizer, like Espoma Organic Citrus-tone, will ensure your tree thrives and produces a bountiful crop.

Whether you’re growing a standard lemon tree or a dwarf variety, you’ll find that these citrus wonders are a perfect fit for your Fruitscaping™ endeavors. From the joy of planting and nurturing to the satisfaction of harvesting, your lemon tree will provide a zesty twist to your gardening journey.

Unfortunately, We Cannot Process Orders to California, Hawaii, Alaska, or Internationally:  Please note that due to specific agricultural regulations, we’re unable to ship any plants to the states of California, Hawaii, and Alaska, or outside the United States.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
