The Lemon is a small, evergreen citrus tree native to Asia that produces ellipsoidal yellow fruits. It is the most cold-sensitive citrus tree and needs year-round temperatures between 13-21° C. Trees will enter dormancy at prolonged periods below 13° C. Twigs have sharp thorns and white blooms. It can be grown in containers in cooler regions, but needs full sun.
