Description

The Citrus limon "Lisbon" is a distinguished Portuguese cultivar appreciated worldwide for its zesty and flavour-packed fruits. This classic lemon variety is not just cherished for its juicy yield, but also for its aromatic white blossoms that grace gardens from Djilba to Kambarang (late winter to spring). As the seasons shift, the luscious lemons mature, making them perfect for harvesting between Bunuru to Djeran (late summer to autumn).

Suitable for planting both in the ground and pots, this adaptable lemon tree is perfect for diverse garden spaces. For those with sandy terrains, amending the ground with a soil conditioner is key to provide the plant with a nourishing environment. From Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn), consistent watering is pivotal, especially during hotter periods. To promote robust growth, nourish the tree with a citrus-specific fertiliser during Djilba (early spring). Once the harvest season wraps up, a light pruning prepares the tree for the blooming cycles ahead.
