Citrus limon Pink (Pink Lemonade Lemon) is an ornamental and edible everbearing tree. Growing up to 10-20 feet tall, it is an attractive tree with purple-tipped new shoots growing from the top. The tree can thrive in full sun or semi-shade and requires moderate water. White to off-white colored flowers blossom every spring, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden.

These blooms are followed by the edible fruit. The fruits are usually green with yellow stripes, but have a pink interior, a delightful surprise for those enjoying them. They have a higher sugar content than regular lemons, making them perfect for drinks, desserts and lemonade. In addition to being flavorful and fragrant, the fruit is also rich in nutrients and has been used in traditional ethnomedical treatments.

Citrus limon Pink is a hardy tree. It can be grown in USDA Zones 9-11, though with extreme care it can be grown in colder regions in containers or movable pots. Here, the tree must be brought indoors or sheltered in winter and provided with plenty of light and water during the growing season. When grown outdoors the lemon tree should be provided with an organic-rich soil, watered regularly and pruned when necessary.

Because of its high vitamin C content, health benefits of Citrus limon Pink include boosting the immune system. Other nutrients found in the fruit also aid in digestion, energy production and bone health. Its versatile flavor can also be used in cooking to bring out the flavors of fish, poultry, and vegetables.

Citrus limon Pink is an attractive, fragrant tree that is easy to care for and produces delicious, nutritious fruit. With its hardy nature, it can be grown in many climates, and its beautiful flowers and delicious fruits will reward your efforts with beauty and flavor.
