A Delicious and Cold Hardy Lemon
The Genoa Lemon is an Italian Lemon that is similar to the Eureka Lemon. It is popular for its cold hardiness, dense foliage and vigorous growth.
This lemon tree grows in a shrub-like form; it grows wide rather than tall, making it quite easy to harvest these delicious lemons. Its size also makes it ideal for container planting.
The Genoa Lemon was brought to the United States over a hundred years ago. It has always been a cherished variety however it has grown in popularity in the colder regions of the U.S. as gardeners realize it can be grown in areas that are too cold for the Eureka.
The fruits on this robust shrub ripen throughout the year on branches that are less thorny than some lemon varieties. The brightly colored peel is very high in lemon oil making it great for use in flavorings. The juice is perfect for marinades and drinks.
The Genoa Lemon Tree is a versatile tree. The fruit is beautiful and healthy, and the size makes it easily added to any patio, garden, balcony or even as a houseplant.
