Meyer Lemon Tree Gift Set

The Bearss Lime is a green seedless lime, a juicy lime flavor, and produced year round on an evergreen tree. Its fruit is larger than Mexican lime and does well in cool areas. When in bloom, Bearss Lime produces fragrant white flowers. This is the lime commonly used for drinks and cooking. The Bearss Lime tree is a heavy bearer of juicy, lemon-sized fruit in winter to early spring. Bearss grows into a densely branched, full rounded crown to about 8 feet, or can be pruned to a desired shape. The limes turn to a pale yellow at full maturity and have a thin, smooth rind. This lime variety needs little heat to ripen, making it an excellent choice for backyard plantings or in containers! In colder areas, move tree indoors for the winter. For best fruiting results it needs full sun, and spring fertilization is recommended. The soil should be kept moist, but not wet, especially during the growing season.

4-Piece Meyer Lemon Gift Set

A Meyer Lemon has been called the “perfect” lemon because it is naturally sweeter than tart, store-bought lemons.You can’t buy Meyer Lemons at the local grocery store, so if you want to enjoy the lemons prized by chefs, you’ve got to grow your own Meyer Lemon tree.

A Meyer Lemon is actually a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. The resulting fruit has that distinctive lemony flavor with extra sweetness and just a hint of orange flavor.

Fortunately, a Meyer Lemon tree grows well in containers, and adjusts to a wide variety of growing conditions. A Meyer Lemon tree is equally spectacular as a houseplant or a focal point on the patio.

A Meyer Lemon tree blooms with dainty white flowers in late fall and then again in spring. The flowers will fill your home or yard with a fresh citrus fragrance. Afterwards, clusters of lemons with begin to grow and ripen. A Meyer Lemon is self-pollinating, so you only need one tree to produce fruit.

The Meyer Lemon Tree Gift Set makes it possible for anyone to enjoy homegrown Meyer Lemons. The gift set includes a potted Meyer Lemon tree, 18-24 inches tall and ready to transplant into the growing container of your choice. Each gift set also incudes Bio-Tone Starter Plus food, Schrade Fruit Sampler Knife and a lemon squeezer made of durable metal with a bright yellow enameled finish.

The Meyer Lemon Tree Gift Set is the perfect choice for chefs, gardeners and anyone who loves the taste of fresh lemons in cold beverages or gourmet foods.
