This presumedly natural hybrid of Lemon (Citrus limon) and Orange (Citrus sinensis) was named after the American explorer Frank N. Meyer (1908). It usually is treated as an own species (Citrus x meyeri) but sometimes also as a cultivar (Citrus limon ‘Meyeri’). Compared to other lemon varieties, its growth is very compact, its maximum size smaller and its leaves smaller. Its flower buds have a red-purple nuance and are grouped to compact groups. They unfold their 3-4 cm large, white and fragrant flowers during the whole vegetation period but usually concentrate around spring and late summer. The fruits are distinctly round, smaller than e.g. ‘Lunario’ and its peel is intense yellow to orange. The aroma of its yellow, juicy pulp is mild- sourish and many top- cooks prefer it to the dominant aroma of ‘Lunario’. That might be the reason why many Restaurants and hotels order this historical but still little known Meyer’s Lemontree. Note: although in common literature it is often written that Meyer’s Lemontree tolerates even long periods of frost we -from our own experience- cannot agree on that and recommend a frost-free wintering.
