    We just planted a Meyer Lemon Tree in Blessing of Israel and can’t wait to try this from our own tree. Looks really yummy !

    • Where did you get a meyer lemon tree to plant? I would love to get one.

      • I actually had a small dwarf meyer lemon tree plant I ordered online, I never got it to grow so well, but maybe you will have better luck. If you buy a 3-4 year old tree you can bear fruit the first year. Check this on Amazon http://ow.ly/s8smb
