迈耶柠檬
迈耶柠檬

One of the best things about having a garden in the desert southwest is our ability to 成长 citrus of all kinds. Lemon trees are a popular fruit tree and I am often asked what type of lemon do I recommend. 

There are different types of lemons but the one that is my favorite isn’t a ‘true’ lemon tree at all. It’s a 迈耶柠檬, which is a cross between an orange tree and a lemon tree.

The result is a fruit that tastes sweeter than your typical lemon and has a lovely thin, smooth skin. 迈耶柠檬s are suitable for use in the same ways that other lemons are, but you can use them in additional ways as well due to their sweeter nature.

I recently shared the reasons why you should 植物 a 迈耶柠檬s tree in one of my latest articles for Houzz.

    My home has a courtyard at the front door that is partially enclosed, open to the sky in the middle with an overhang at the front door. I would love to 成长 a 迈耶柠檬 in a large pot by the front door. 这能行吗,或者这棵树需要阳光直射吗?

    我刚买了一棵"改良的迈耶柠檬树. I want it to replace an old large lemon tree we lost recently due to a fungal issue. Can I just remove the old stump and trans植物 the new tree there, or is this fungal thing…. 一件事? I was told it’s common in old trees, and it would be OK from our arborist. 只是为了“看浇水”.”

    想听听第二种意见吗. 谢谢!

    嗨,马特,

    一般, it’s not recommended to re植物 a tree in the same spot regardless of whether or not there was a fungal problem. The reason for this is that even if the stump and roots were ground, 和删除, there is a higher percentage of sawdust in the soil and not enough nutrients for a new tree initially. If you can 植物 the new tree several feet away, that would be best. 如果这是不可能的, remove as much of the trunk and roots of the old tree before 植物ing the new one and keep an eye out for any nutrient deficiences. 柑橘树的真菌感染是相当常见的, 流胶现象, 典型地出现在西南大部分地区. It is spread when water splashes up onto the trunk of citrus trees where it can take hold and 成长.

    我希望这能有所帮助!
