The Lisbon Lemon, scientifically known as Citrus limon 'Lisbon', is a classic and widely cultivated lemon variety known for its high-quality fruit and vigorous growth habit. It's one of the most popular lemon varieties grown commercially and in home gardens.

In cultivation, Lisbon Lemon trees typically reach about 15 to 25 feet in height and spread 15 to 20 feet. The tree has a dense canopy with glossy, dark green leaves, and it produces fragrant white flowers, often several times a year. The Lisbon Lemon is known for its thorns, particularly on younger branches, which is a distinguishing characteristic of this variety.

The fruit of the Lisbon Lemon is what makes this tree particularly desirable. The lemons are medium to large in size, with a bright yellow color when ripe. They have a classic lemon flavor—tart and acidic—with a high juice content, making them ideal for culinary use in cooking, baking, and beverages. The skin is relatively thick and textured, and the fruit has few seeds.

Lisbon Lemon trees thrive in full sun and prefer well-draining soil. Regular watering is essential, but care should be taken to avoid overwatering, as citrus trees are susceptible to root rot. The trees are somewhat cold-sensitive and may require frost protection in cooler climates.

In landscaping, Lisbon Lemon trees are often planted in home orchards, gardens, and can be potted for patio growing. Besides their fruit, these trees are valued for their ornamental qualities, with lush foliage, fragrant flowers, and visually appealing lemons.

Overall, the Lisbon Lemon tree is an excellent choice for those interested in growing citrus. Its reliable fruit production, classic lemon flavor, and ornamental appeal make it a popular choice for gardeners and citrus enthusiasts. The tree's adaptability to a range of climates and growing conditions adds to its widespread appeal.
