'Eureka' Seedless Lemon
Renowned for its juicy, sharp-tasting fruit, Eureka lemon has been popular with home gardeners for many years.
A new variety has all the attributes of the old – except for seeds! The bright yellow fruit mainly appears in winter and spring.
Size: to 5 m, but may be pruned to reduce its size.
Cultivation: Plant in a warm, sunny position in the garden, in soil enriched with compost, or in a container with top quality potting mix. Water in well with seaweed solution and then apply an organic fertiliser. Fertilise in early spring and again in late summer.
Special comments: Eureka! Seedless Lemon is tolerant of a wide range of climates, as long as it is sheltered from strong winds, given consistent moisture and protected from heavy frosts until well established.
