A cross between a regular lemon and a kumquat the fruit are oval in shape, but turn yellow when ripe. Each fruit is about a quarter of the size of a normal lemon and taste delicious making them a perfect for drinks and cocktails!.
Current Description
With ripening fruit, the Lyvia (or Lara) lemons are a good choice for a sunny windowsill and a great way to start your citrus passion! After a different variety or something bigger? We have a wide range of other lemon trees available too. Not as bushy as pictured, we'll update the photos soon. Good to know: Although we carefully wrap and pack our plants to protect them, when fruit are ripe and heavy on the plant, it is not unusual for them to be dislodged during transit. The good news is they can still be used, and it will trigger the plant to produce more flowers early next year.

Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

This little tree has both tasty fruit and fragrant flowers – sometimes both at once. It can bring pleasure for months, or even years, with the right care. It is a cross between a lemon and a kumquat. The fruit is smaller but tastes very similar to a lemon with a sweet edible rind and is great for flavouring cooked dishes or slicing in cold drinks.

Citrus trees need light and like to be near a window, skylight or patio door. In summer your tree will enjoy a sheltered patio but needs to come inside in the autumn. Try to keep your plant away from cold draughts and radiators.

They require watering once the top of the soil is dry, so check regularly. Once ready, remove from container, place your young tree on a draining board and water the soil heavily, always allow all the excess water to drain away before placing back in the normal bright position. Citrus suffer if left to stand in water.

Citrus trees will benefit from citrus feed every few weeks to encourage growth. If you need to repot your plant, its best to do so in the spring in citrus compost. As a general rule they flower in Summer and fruits ripen in the winter. The fruits are ready to harvest when they turn yellow and are slightly sweeter than limes with an edible rind.

Problem Solving

The most common problem with citrus trees is leaves dropping due to over or under watering. A return to a regular watering routine should help your plant recover, but in severe cases it may be necessary to cut off any dead growth and be patient while it recovers.

Our plants are grown in a pesticide free environment. In the unlikely event that you find any pests (including aphids or caterpillars) on your plant use a soapy water to wash off the offending creatures and pick off any damaged leaves to keep the plant tidy.
