Heavy Producer that's Great for Containers
The Eureka Lemon produces large crops of lemons annually. It bears all year and is a standard market variety. This lemon is somewhat knobby, thick-skinned, and has a short neck at the stem end.
Eureka is easy to espalier, and has fewer thorns than other traditional lemons. Dwarf Citrus will average 8-10' tall, and it will get taller unless pruned.
Watering can vary, depending on container size, drainage and location of the tree. Containerized citrus trees should be allowed to dry between waterings.
The Eureka lemon contains a moderate amount of juice, and is grown primarily for this acidic juice, which can be used to flavor both sweet and savory dishes.
Lemons are very rich in vitamin C and also provide potassium and folic acid. The Eureka Lemon can be kept in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Lemons stored at room temperature will keep for about 1 week. The juice and zest of lemons can be frozen.
