Highest Juice Content of Any LemonSi signore! (Yes sir!) This is the lemon you’ve been looking for. Femminello Santa Teresa Lemon, Citrus limon ‘Femminello Santa Teresa’, has the most classic lemon taste you’ll find in a citrus fruit. It’s the exact fruit that the Italians have been using to make their world famous limoncello drinks for ages. No other lemon works as well.There are many great things about the Italian Lemon, besides the taste. For starters, it has a low seed count. Less seeds means it’s easier to cook with or to squeeze over your food or to put into your tea. Less seeds equals less trouble. It also has a high juice content – one of the highest juice contents of any lemon. This means that it is great to squeeze into a juice or lemonade.Believe it or not, though, it isn’t the juice that makes this lemon so revered…it’s the rind. The lemon zest of the Italian Lemon is the real prize. The rind is high in lemon oil, which is the essential ingredient in so much Italian cooking and, yes, those world-famous limoncellos.When you’re ready to go ‘old world’ in the kitchen, order one of these great trees from us! We deliver healthy three-year old trees that have great branching and sturdy roots to get you off to the best start possible.Great in containers in a sunny window, too!* Perfect lemon taste* Prized for cooking and juicing* Great in containers .
Heavy Producer that’s Great for ContainersThe Eureka Lemon produces large crops of lemons annually. It bears all year and is a standard market variety. This lemon is somewhat knobby, thick-skinned, and has a short neck at the stem end. Eureka is easy to espalier, and has fewer thorns than other traditional lemons. Dwarf Citrus will average 8-10′ tall, and it will get taller unless pruned. Watering can vary, depending on container size, drainage and location of the tree. Containerized citrus trees should be allowed to dry between waterings. The Eureka lemon contains a moderate amount of juice, and is grown primarily for this acidic juice, which can be used to flavor both sweet and savory dishes. Lemons are very rich in vitamin C and also provide potassium and folic acid. The Eureka Lemon can be kept in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Lemons stored at room temperature will keep for about 1 week. The juice and zest of lemons can be frozen.Although the Eureka Lemon can grow as tall as 12 feet, it can be grown in a container & kept pruned to maintain a dwarf shape. Tis allows you to grow them in colder climtaes; just bring the container inside during colder weather.* Produces Prolifically All Year* Few Thorns* Can Be Grown in a Container.
You haven’t seen a fruit like this before! Don’t you love the look, smell and taste of a plate of fresh citrus slices? We do too. But that’s not what you’re going to get with the Australian Finger Lime.This lime is not your typical lime – it’s not even your typical citrus fruit. For starters, it’s not round…or oval…or even vaguely lime-like. It is long and thin, looking more like a pickle than anything else. (Weird, right?)You also don’t peel this lime or cut it into segments like you do other citrus fruit. Just cut it open and see. When you do you’ll find Australian Finger Lime spills out hundreds of fragrant, juicy little balls that look for all the world like caviar or the boba in the bottom of Asian tea. The little balls burst in your mouth with an explosion of lime flavor. They feel funny, but taste great!The Australian Finger Lime is a perfect addition to your yard if you live somewhere where citrus trees are happy. If not, it makes a great potted indoor plant in a sunny window all year.In the wild it is native to the rainforests of Australia, but has only recently been ‘rediscovered’.

A Rare Treat for Your Edible GardenFor a few months in late summer and early fall, Farmer’s Markets in sun belt states get the luxury of Sudachi mandarins showing up in small batches in the booths. If you blink though, you’ll miss them, because they are snatched up so quickly by local chefs and foodies.Sudachi is a lime-like citrus fruit from Japan. It is similar to the Yuzu Citron, but is smaller, juicier and less seedy. Like Yuzu, it is a cross between a mandarin and a lime. Unlike Yuzu, it is the juice – not the rind – that is most prized.Sudachi is used to flavor soups, fish dishes and especially matsutake mushrooms. It has a distinctive spicy aroma that chefs say is like lime, pepper, dill and cumin all in one. The flavor is best when they are harvested green and about the size of a Ping-Pong ball.Until recently these fruits were very rare in America. While they certainly aren’t common now, they are available in limited quantities from Nature Hills, but you need to act fast.Our 3-year old trees arrive well-branched and thickly rooted, ready for planting in your favorite container, or in your garden if you live where citrus thrives outdoors.

No more getting orange zest under your fingernails that you can’t get out for days.

A Classic American Fruit You know a fruit is good when it’s been around since 1867. The Dancy Tangerine was bred in Florida just after the Civil War. It was a great fresh fruit then and is still a great fruit to grow.Dancy has juicy and tasty red/orange flesh and it ripens in December, so it is often called the Christmas Tangerine. You won’t find this on your supermarket shelf, though.Part of what makes the Dancy so good is also what makes it hard to bring to the mass market. It has a really loose skin that is super easy to peel. Unfortunately, that means that modern equipment bruise and scar the fruit. So, if you’d like to taste this little bit of American history, you’ll need to grow it yourself.
