This smallest of the Lemon varieties produces standard, yellow, sour market lemons throughout the year. Of all the citruses, Lemons need the least amount of heat to produce fruit. Found on dwarfing rootstock and as a 20-foot-tall tree. Dwarf types are preferred in California's cooler coastal areas since more fruit ripens in late spring and early summer.
