Citrus limon - Lemonade

With fruit eaten straight from the tree as sweet as lemonade this is actually a hybrid between a lemon and a mandarin. The edible Citrus limon - Lemonade fruit looks like a lemon but is a lot sweeter, and can be broken into segments more like an orange. Perfect for sugar-free lemonade drinks!

Height: 7 metres.

Width:  4 metres.

Growth rate: Moderate.

Form: Rounded

Foliage: Light to dark green with glossy texture

Flower: White

Tolerances: Citrus limon - Lemonade likes moist, well-drained soil with neutral ph level. Thrives under part shade to full sun. 

Landscape use: This small bushy tree is perfectly suited to growing in containers, and fruits well over a long period.

Care: Citrus trees are gross feeders - that means they need to be fed in July, November and March with a good citrus and fruit tree fertiliser. Give them 125 grams for every year of the tree’s age at each of the applications. But when the tree gets to about 10 years old or older it needs 1 1/4 kg of fertiliser. Spread the fertiliser evenly around the drip zone, water in and the tree will power away.
 
Even with regular fertilising the leaves might still show symptoms of iron deficiency. This is evident when the leaf veins stand out dark green and the tissue between turns a pale green, yellow or even white. To correct this and other deficiencies, add trace element mixture around the base of tree.

If the Citrus limon - Lemonade fruits are sour there is a simple way to sweeten them. Sprinkle about six handfuls of sulphate of potash around the tree and then water in with two teaspoons of Epsom salts mixed into 10 litres of water.
