Your tree looks great, Eureka is certainly a good old reliable variety to have in the garden. Mine keeps on giving as well.

That's great.

Hi guys, it is certainly the most productive in my yard along with pawpaws and bananas.  No thorns at all and I don’t give it specialised food - just gets rooster booster and horse poo which I chuck on all my fruit trees. Try to remember  to give it a feed every 4 months or so.  My tree would have to be at least 6 years old now and I haven’t had to buy a lemon in years. My kids love juice so I use them all by squeezing and adding plenty of sugar and water until taste is just righT. Skin is good, I use it for zest’s as well. In terms of pests, it has been good except this year I’m battling oyster scale and white louse scale (which killed my cumquat).  I’m on my last lot of lime Sulfur sprays so hopefully does the trick.

A good example of year round lemons, and thornless as well. 

We had a large lisbon tree that had larger lemons with it's big crop in winter but the thorns tear you to pieces.

Do you give it specialized citrus food Susan?  Thanks for sharing the picture.

Going by the citrus walk last weekend, Annette highly recommended the Eureka for Brisbane area. Fruits all year round as per Susan's experience and no thorns. Lotsoflemon does not do well in the ground apparently, better in pots. She also recommended sunshine blood lime for finger limes and Tahitian or west Indian lime for regular limes. That's looking good Susan. Very envious. Mine are not that prolific but I have trusted sources to get lime supplies.

Thin-skinned. As pest and disease free as the health of the soil. Treat them right and reap the rewards.

Is Eureka pest and disease free?

What is the Eureka skin quality like? I mainly need lemon zest for cooking and baking.
