Description

The Pink Variegated Lemon Tree, oftentimes called variegated Eureka lemon tree or pink-fleshed Eureka lemon, is a cultivar of lemon botanically named Citrus limon “Eureka Variegated Pink”. It was first discovered in 1931 that grew on a regular Eureka Lemon tree at a home garden in Burbank, California.

This citrus tree is drought tolerant and suitable for outdoor planting in USDA plant hardiness zones 8 to 11. When planted in the ground it can grow up to 10 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide. If you live in an area where winter temperatures won’t allow you to grow the Eureka pink lemon tree in the ground, you can always get a dwarf Pink Variegated Lemon Tree and grow it in a container indoors. Position the tree near a sunny, south-facing window to supplement it with its much needed sunlight during winter. When all danger of frost has passed you can move the potted lemon tree to your deck or patio where it can stay until next winter.

Pink Variegated lemon trees make fine ornamental trees because of their glossy, evergreen, green and cream-colored foliage and fragrant white blooms that are in season in spring or fall. They bear low-seeded pink-fleshed lemon fruits that have green-stripped rind while still immature. As the fruits ripen, they lose their stripes and the rinds turn yellow with pink oil glands.

What makes this tree even more likable is its adaptability to different soil types and growing conditions. It is also resistant to pests or diseases.
