Frank's survival guide

When life gives you lemons...

At Plantsome we named the Lemon Meyeri plant after its original discovering botanist Frank Meyer. Originally an immigrant from Holland, Frank became a botanist for the US department of agriculture. It took him on many harrowing adventures! This beautiful and tasty Lemon Meyer plant bears his legacy. Thanks Frank!

How to care for Frank

When life gives you lemons... you must have one of these in your home because that's how you get 'em! The Citrus Meyeri is actually known to be a cross between a regular lemon and a mandarin which gives the Meyeri lemon a slightly sweeter taste than what you get with regular lemons. So when life does give you lemons, they better be these sweet tastin Meyeri's. Yummm!

In order for your Lemon trees to flourish, put them outside in a bright spot, for example on a balcony or patio. These trees need the night time drops in temperature to start producing fruit!

Oh no. I am sold out! :(
