Bought 2 of these and can't get over how much they have grown. They arrived healthy and strong and have grown about 8 since I planted them a couple of months ago.

I just received my lemon tree sapling this spring, it had several leaves but otherwise wasn't really growing until I set it outside after it warmed up and we no longer had a frost danger. About a week later it started sprouting all over with new growth and one limb has two blooms on it. The tree is 6 tall! I am excited and pleased at how healthy the plant is and can't wait to see if my blooms will turn in to two full size lemons! -anxiously waiting

I bought a lemon tree for the house as my Grandfather used to have one in Florida before he moved back to New York with us. It just came in yesterday and it took me some time to get to re-potting it. However I was quite surprised when I did as it already had a green lemon on it. I thought about perhaps removing it to insure plant growth, but my Grandfather really enjoys seeing fruits grow. Therefore I'll just keep that one on there and remove any other flower buds that pop up.I gave this a 4/5 as even though I had a lemon on the small tree, I had to cut the pot it was in to get it out, due to the roots being a tangled, overgrown mess.

I bought 2 lemon trees few months ago, put them in my room. Now, it's December and they are about to bloom. I didn't even have to wait until spring. It was a very big surprise.

I bought this lemon tree last year. Never thought that by February this year I would be getting blooms!It had so many blooms, more than 40! I was away for 5 days and the soil dried up so most of the blooms fell, it was my fault. The tree is not even 1 foot long yet and has 6 lemons on it. Do not be discouraged by the size of the plant you get, these are dwarfs they will bear fruit even when they are small. Mine only took a year. I am very happy with my purchase.

I bought my lemon last year & have it in an 8 pot, kind of a joke. I moved it inside for the Winter & was delighted to see blossoms! I now have 5 tiny lemons! The plant is still only 6 tall with few leaves, but I am delighted!

I bought 2 lemon from MB in Fall 2011 and put it in a 3G pot. when I got these two plants it was just 4inches tall with few leaves in it, I was very skeptical about its appearance but it has grown to a 2'' tree now.Both are blooming very well. One tree has 4 lemons and the next one has 2 lemons.Looks very healthy and start blooming again now. I am going to transplant it to a 15Gallon pot this month. Thanks MB.
