Citrus - Lemon Eureka
If you don't mind seeds in your fruit, if it means you can pick it year round, and grow it in a pot, go for Eureka. Thornless, crops more than once a year! One for warmer gardens - they don't like cold or wind - and needs occasional pruning to keep it neat and healthy.
We're used to our tubestock plants bearing the occasional sweet-smelling white blossom - see our image gallery for a tubestock plant that surprised us with a fruit!
