A true conversation piece! Your guests will be amazed by this highly ornamental plant. Featuring light green and yellow variegated leaves tinged with white edges, 'Eureka' produces medium-sized fruits with a striped rind that begins to fade when the fruit is fully ripe. The pulp inside is a charming light pink at maturity!


Is this for you?
Unique look, traditional flavor. While these lemons boast an interesting look, their flavor is that of a classic lemon! Sweet and mostly tart with a pulpy inside, the juice has a faint tinge of pink when squeezed! 'Eureka' contains very few seeds and is nearly thornless.

A steady harvest throughout the season! 'Eureka' produces a steady crop year-round if grown indoors, but the most bountiful harvest happens in the springtime - perfect timing for sipping on sweet homemade lemonade! In cool climates, plant your shrub in a large patio container and bring it indoors for winter. This plant is not winter hardy and should only be planted in-ground in zones 9-10.

Sun-loving and easy to grow! To thrive, 'Eureka' needs a full sun area in the garden or on the patio. Protect from strong winds and cold temperatures and water thoroughly the first year so the plant can establish a deep root system.

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories FL, TX, AZ, CA, LA, AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.
