After attending a lecture by a gardening author who has grown Meyer lemons (Citrus × meyeri) on her Cape Cod deck for years, I was determined to do the same on my deck in sunnier southeastern Pennsylvania. My experiment started with a four-foot grafted tree purchased online last April. It started blooming in three weeks and by August baby lemons were forming. The lemons were still green in October when the tree came inside for the winter, along with my low expectations that I’d ever harvest a real lemon. To my surprise, the fruit didn’t fall off, but instead grew and turned yellow and sweet. I was rewarded after ten months with three perfect Meyer lemons.
