Lisbon has the most thorns of all the Lemons, however it makes up for this with its heavy crop of medium size fruit. Vigorous tree with thick foliage.
Will grow in moist soil types as long as fairly well drained. Full sun is essential. Prune to shape in late winter. Watch for lemon leaf scale and citrus leaf miner and treat as necessary. Fertilise late Spring and Summer.
Popular in Australian backyards, especially Mediterranean gardens. Plant with Oleander, Osmanthus, Olives and Lavender and other Mediterranean favourites. Height to 6m.
