Citrus limon x reticulata "Lemonade" delivers a unique twist on the traditional Lemon with its sweeter, less acidic fruits, thanks to its Mandarin lineage. Not only an asset in the culinary realm for its milder taste, "Lemonade" also adorns itself with fragrant white flowers during its flowering season. Suitable for those wanting a lemony flavour without the sharp tang, this tree proves both a sensory and gastronomic delight.
Whether planted in pots or directly in the ground, "Lemonade" craves full sun exposure. When sown in sandy soils, it's advantageous to enrich the earth with a high-quality soil conditioner. Watering consistently from Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn) ensures optimal growth, especially during warmer periods. For flourishing results, fertilise with a citrus blend come Djilba (early spring) and consider a light prune post-harvest to maintain its health and shape.
