Dwarf Genoa Italian Lemon Citrus Tree
A cold-hardy variety from Italy, Genoa lemons are exceptionally versatile—the juice adds tangy flavor to everything from salad dressings and marinades to lemonade and cocktails. The fragrant yellow zest is very high in natural lemon oil, making it a favorite baking ingredient. Our citrus tree arrives ready for transplanting into the ground, a planter or a decorative container (wooden planter shown not included). A dwarf variety, it will bear fragrant white blossoms in the spring and full-sized fruit in the winter.

- Please water tree immediately upon arrival.
Whether planting in a container or in the ground, plant the tree so the root collar (crown roots) shows above the soil line. The soil line in the pot as you recieved it should remain the soil line after planting. Make sure that soil or mulch is not pushed up against the trunk of the tree.
Citrus grows best between 55°F and 85°F. Indoor temperatures averaging 65°F are conducive to growth if light is adequate. Protect from freezing temperatures.
Provide 8 or more hours of direct sunlight per day. If less than 6 hours of natural full sun is provided, supplement with grow lights. An unobstructed window facing south or southwest is ideal.
Citrus trees require soil that is moist but never soggy. Watering frequency will vary with soil porosity, tree size, and environmental factors. Do not water if the top of the soil is dry without checking the soil at root level. A simple moisture meter, available at garden supply stores, will read moisture at the root level. This inexpensive tool will allow you to never have to guess about whether or not a plant needs water.
Citrus trees feed heavily on nitrogen. Your fertilizer should have more nitrogen (N) than phosphorous (P) or potassium (K). Use at least a 2-1-1 ratio. Miracid Soil Acidifier is a water-soluble product that works well and is a 3-1-1 ratio. In some regions, you may be able to find specialized citrus/avocado fertilizers. In general, buy a good slow-release formula that contains trace minerals like iron, zinc and manganese and apply according to package directions.
