Each year during late November and early December, the Lemons on our Improved Meyer Lemon tree are ripe for the picking. If you live in the Houston area and are looking for a super easy-to-grow fruit tree, I’d really recommend this one. Other than providing a little fertilizer, we don’t do anything special for this tree. It smells wonderful from Spring through Summer, and during the Fall and early Winter, you’ll have large fresh Lemons. The Giant Swallowtail Butterflies also love hanging around this plant.
Leecy who’s always looking for ways to sell things, has been selling the Lemons for 50 cents and she tells me she’s made about $50.00 so far. Compared to the Lemons in our local grocery stores, our Lemons are about twice as big.
Today Leecy did our next to last picking. We only have a dozen left after these that she picked today.
