Unique look, traditional flavor! While these lemons boast an interesting look, their flavor is that of a classic lemon! Featuring showy striped lemons with tart flavor and gorgeous variegated foliage, 'Eureka' is an edible ornamental that's perfect for patios! Includes one actively growing plant in a one gallon pot.

Sweet and mostly tart with a pulpy inside, the juice has a faint tinge of pink when squeezed! 'Eureka' contains very few seeds and is nearly thornless. Featuring light green and yellow variegated leaves tinged with white edges, 'Eureka' produces medium-sized fruits with a striped rind that begins to fade when the fruit is fully ripe. The pulp inside is a charming light pink at maturity! A steady harvest throughout the season! 'Eureka' produces a steady crop year-round if grown indoors, but the most bountiful harvest happens in the springtime - perfect timing for sipping on sweet homemade lemonade! In cool climates, plant your shrub in a large patio container and bring it indoors for winter. This plant is not winter hardy and should only be planted in-ground in zones 9-10. Sun-loving and easy to grow! To thrive, 'Eureka' needs a full sun area in the garden or on the patio. Protect from strong winds and cold temperatures and water thoroughly the first year so the plant can establish a deep root system. This product cannot ship to AZ, CA, FL, LA or TX.
