About Lemon Tree: Lemon is one of the best used (culinary and non-culinary) fruit in the family of Rutaceae, or it is the most miniature fruit in this family. The scientific name of lemon is Citrus x lemon, and it comes with the Rutaceae family. It has a sour taste with a pH level of 2-3. Lemon comes in many varieties like Sweet, Genoa, Rough, Nepali oblong, Nepali round…etc. Cultivars are also different cities or countries. Most people use it as another type of juice, and it has many benefits for your health.
How to Plant Seeds: There are three methods to plant lemon trees. By using its seeds, they are grafted, and cutting method. In this post, we will know about using the seeds method. Take out one lemon and remove all seeds and wash them properly. Seeds are white in colour with a yellow shade (size approx. 1 cm long). Seed’s methods take lots of time for fruits.
Prepare a Good Quality Soil Potting: To make a soil mixture, take out the garden soil (50%), vermicompost, or cow dung (30%), and cocopeat or river sand (20). Mix it well with neem cake powder (50gm) and make well-drained garden soil. Fill the soil mixture into a flowerpot (flowerpot size to be 12 to 15 inches large with a diameter of 7 inches).
Take lemon seeds and dig a hole (1 cm long). Put the seeds into those holes and cover them with soil. Spray water to the soil and keep the flowerpot in indirect sunlight.
Within 10 to 15 days, germination starts from the seeds, with one stem appearing from the plants. The stem has 2 to 3 leaves. If germination grows up to 5 to 6 inches with 8 to 10 leaves, we need to transplant them. If plants grow up to 1 foot to 2 feet, then transplant them into the ground (it’s your choice).
Transplantation: For transplantation, use garden soil (70%) with cow dung (30%). Mix it well and make the soil mixture well-drained. Fill soil mixture into flowerpot (size 7 to 8 inches) and take out the transplant plants. Dig a hole 5 to 6 inches and put the plants into holes, and cover the rooting portion with soil. Give water properly and place the flowerpot in direct sunlight.
Remember: USDA hardiness zone should be 9-11. In a flowerpot, make sure drainage holes are available or not. If there are no holes at the surface, then make 5 to 9 holes (Drainage holes are necessary). Cover the holes with a grenade or stones. Use a ceramic flowerpot. The distance between the seeds should be 2 to 3 cm.
Best Caring Tips
- Watering: During the summer season, give water properly, and in the winter season keeps well moisture in the soil potting. Use a spray water gun till the plants grow up to 1 foot.
- Best Fertilizer: Cow dung and vermicompost are the best fertilizer for the lemon plants, or after fertilizer, give water properly (by giving water immediately fertilizer mixed with soil). Give fertilizer to the plants after 40 to 50 days, or it is necessary to give fertilizer before the growing season.
- Temperature: well, maintaining temperature gives the best result. Maintain temperature between 15 to 25 Degree Celsius. Always save plants from heavy temperatures (Above 30 Degree Celsius) or heavy rain.
Bloom Season & Fruit Time: Flowers start blooming on the plant after 3 to 4 years, and fruits start appearing after one month. This fruit is initially green in colour with a round shape, and after ripening, it turns into yellow colour. Over time, the fruit’s size grows up to 1 to 3 inches. The outer part of the fruit is thick or soft (it depends on verity).
