Description for Citrus Galgal, Nimboo

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.
