Small tree, generally only to 6-12ft. Fairly cold hardy, surviving temperature into the high 20C. The Meyer lemon grows well in standard citrus producing climates, but also grows in cooler areas, and areas that receive brief freezes. Its small size makes it a popular container plant indoors in temperate climates. Grows well in full sun or part shade (full sun in cooler climates.) Water regularly, less so during cold months. Fertilize during growing periods.

Propagation: Commonly by grafting cuttings to various citrus rootstocks. Can also be propagated by seed which usually come true, or fairly close to their parent. Takes 4 years to fruit from seed.
