Description

Citrus limon x sinensis "Meyer" is a prized cultivar, beautifully blending the characteristics of oranges and lemons into one delightful fruit. With aromatic white blossoms that emerge during Djilba to Kambarang (late winter to spring), followed by the tangy yet sweet lemons, it's no wonder "Meyer" is a beloved choice. Whether aiming for ornamental appeal or culinary zest, this cultivar serves both purposes elegantly.

Both ground planting and pot cultivation suit "Meyer", though those working with sandy soils should enhance the ground with a quality soil conditioner. During Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn), consistent watering is pivotal, especially under the warmth of the sun. To ensure a bountiful yield, a citrus-friendly fertiliser application in Djilba (early spring) is recommended. Once the harvest, typically peaking from Bunuru to Djeran (late summer to autumn), is complete, a light pruning prepares the tree for the subsequent flowering season.
