Lemon Fruit (Citrus Limon)
This famous, long-lived tree opens its clusters of extremely fragrant white flowers, followed by big ovoid fruits which are green when young and later ripen to bright yellow. As well as producing a large crop of fruit, it also makes the ultimate architectural courtyard plant in warmer countries, or is perfect in a container on a patio conservatory or cold greenhouse specimen as it can tolerate temperatures down to -5C. Modern forms of this fruit are selectively bred to produce few or no seeds, hence the difficulty in obtaining viable seeds.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
