Similarly, you may ask, what is the difference between Meyer lemon and Improved Meyer Lemon?

Actually, there is no difference between the type of fruit produced by the Meyer lemon and the Improved Meyer lemon. The fruit of Meyer lemons are rounder and slightly sweeter than store-bought lemons. And the skin has a slight orange cast to it and is not as bright yellow as store-bought lemons.

Furthermore, how big does an improved Meyer lemon tree get? Today's Improved Meyer Lemon dwarf is something of a cross between an ordinary lemon and an orange. The thin-skinned fruit is sweet and grows readily in the right conditions. The tree reaches 6 to 10 feet (2-3 m.) in height.

Herein, why are Meyer lemons better?

Meyer lemons are a bit sweeter than regular lemons, with a discernible orange flavor. They can be used in place of regular lemons in many recipes, but keep in mind that they contain more sugar and less acid, and thus have a softer flavor than their famously sour siblings.

Are coffee grounds good for Meyer lemon trees?

The best soil pH for growing lemon trees and other citrus is 6.5, according to University of California Riverside Research Facility. If your soil has a higher pH, use mulches that acidify the soil, like pine needles or coffee grounds. Regularly test your soil's pH to avoid making it too acidic.
