  • Lemon Trees

    Just wondered if anyone was growing the lemon trees you can grow indoors? They would be nice to have in dire times.

    No, but one of these days I'd like a to have various types of dwarf citrus trees indoors. When I get my house finished I'll look further into it. Can you harvest year round if temperature and light are consistent?

      I have no idea. Going to do some research.

        Indoors? I don't know, but outside I think trees bear 1 time per year. My sisters old place in Tampa, I think that she had the "Ponderosa" lemon. They were large with thick skins. They can be kept for a long time, 2 or 3 months in the right conditions.

          part of my prep plans include ordering dwarf lemon and orange trees, and a banana plant. They'd have to be kept indoors during winter here.

          I'd think as long as you had the sun and water and good soil, they'd do fine indoors in cold weather.

          I haven't been able to do it yet, but I also want to order dwarf apple, pear, and apricot trees, that would stay outside year round.

            I have been growing lemons indoors for 8-10 years. Lemons and limes do well. Oranges not so well here in Maine. Best place I have found is Good luck.
