Growing Lemons in Australia – a production manual©

INTRODUCTION

Around the world lemons are largely grown in the semi-arid and arid subtropical

regions with mild winter temperatures. The two most important acid lemon

varieties are Eureka and Lisbon.

In Australia the main lemon varieties grown commercially are Eureka, Lisbon

and Meyer. There are also small plantings of other varieties including Fino,

Verna, Villafranca and Yen Ben. Several new varieties and clones of lemon have

also recently or will soon become available including Allen Eureka, Eureka

Seedless (Eureka SL from South Africa), Genoa and Limoniera 8A.

Variety selection should be based on the product specifications of the market to

be supplied and the climatic conditions of the growing site.

Information on the performance (yield and quality) of Eureka, Fino and Verna on

a range of rootstocks is available from the Final Technical report on the lemon

variety/rootstock trials undertaken at three sites from 1997-2003. This report

(CT97002) is available from Horticulture Australia and is also on the Australian

Citrus Growers website www.austcitrus.org.au

Included in this chapter are copies of the Lemon Variety Fact Sheets available at

the Australian Citrus Growers website www.austcitrus.org.au These fact sheets

are updated periodically.
