Introducing the #5 Sambokan Lemon Tree, a rare and exquisite citrus hybrid hailing from the Wakayama prefecture in Japan. Known for its distinctive appearance and delightful flavor profile, this tree brings a unique touch to your garden.

The Sambokan Lemon Tree boasts a rare fruit with a rough, thick skin that peels akin to a tangerine. The flavor is a harmonious blend of sweet orange and grapefruit, offering a natural “lemonade” taste with the perfect mix of sweetness and tartness.

To ensure the optimal growth of your Sambokan Lemon Tree, provide it with full sun to partial shade. Keep the soil evenly moist, avoiding waterlogged conditions, and enjoy the medium-sized fruit with a 10mm thick rind. The tree thrives in humidity levels between 40% and 60%, adapting well to temperatures ranging from 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Planted in well-draining soil, this lemon tree ensures proper aeration for healthy root development.

While the #5 Sambokan Lemon Tree graces your garden with its unique charm, please note that it is not pet-friendly. Elevate your gardening experience with this rare and flavorful addition, and savor the natural “lemonade” taste straight from your own orchard.

Comes in a #5 (about 5 gallon) size growers pot. Plant shown is an example of what you will receive.
