||Citrus limon 'Pink Variegated Lemon'
||Pink Lemonade Tree
The Pink Lemonade tree is a Eureka-type lemon with impressive variegated foliage and fruit, making it both a desirable edible and highly attractive ornamental. The fragrant flowers emerge magenta and fade into light pink flowers. The flavor is similar to the classic Eureka, with lovely pink flesh, making it great for cocktails, desserts and décor.
Fragrant, long-blooming citrus trees are perfect for the Northern California garden. Their evergreen nature provides rich green color all year round. Not to mention the abundant and delicious fruit you will harvest.
||This is the classic lemon with sour, bright, tangy flavor. Flesh is pink, juice is clear.

|Planting and Care Tip:
||All citrus require full sun. Citrus are heavy feeders. Fertilize in late winter before bloom and regularly throughout growing season. Do not fertilize in winter. Prune in early spring, after fear of frost to desired shape. Newly planted should not be pruned for the first 2-3 years, except to remove suckers below the scion graft.
