Description for Nimboo, Lemon ( Big Fruit, Grafted)

In India, in terms of area under cultivation, citrus is the third largest fruit industry after Banana and Mango.

When you grow a lemon tree in a pot, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First of all, container lemon trees will not get as large as lemon tree grown in the ground.

When growing lemon trees in containers, the needs are very similar to lemon trees growing in the ground. The lemon trees will need good drainage, so make sure the pot has drainage holes.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Nimboo, Limboo.lime - Annual 2 to 6 Moderately easy,

Planting and care

  • Citrus trees need a warm or mild climate zone. As long as frosts are not severe citrus trees will tolerate cool conditions.
  • In cold zones grow only container versions, so when temperatures really plummet, bring them inside a greenhouse or enclosed porch.
  • Citrus need full sun, so place them in the sunniest part of your garden or balcony.
  • Pots must have drainage holes in their base and be elevated slightly off the ground.
  • Water potted citrus two to three times a week, and possibly daily in very hot weather.
  • Apply citrus food in small amounts monthly from August to mid autumn.
  • Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
    Full sun, Partial sun. Citrus orchards flourish well in light soils with good drainage properties. Deep soils with pH range of 5.5 to 7.5 are considered ideal. Keep soil moist throughout the growing season, 20 to 40 degrees C Use any organic fertilizer

    Caring for Nimboo

    • If you have the luxury of starting from scratch, plant your lemon tree where it will get plenty of sun and be protected from frost in the colder months.
    • Ensure the soil is well drained in your planting area.
    • Mulch in a ring around the tree.
    • This helps keep moisture in the ground, but more importantly prevents grass and weeds, which lemon trees dislike, from encroaching on your plant.
    • Care should be taken, though, not to mulch right up to the trunk as this can promote collar rot.
