Citrus x limon
Citrus x limon is the name of the familiar Lemon tree, source of the lemon fruit.
It is an evergreen, large shrub or small tree left to its own devices but usually managed and pruned to keep it compact and the fruit easier to harvest. It is a sun-lover and will enjoy an outdoor position on the patio during the warmer months. Can be grown permanently in a pot but will require regular watering and feeding to encourage flowering and fruit production.
