     How to grow a lemon, Part 1


      While a beginner inspect the cultivation method.


            (INDEX to 3-◆




    〜 Introduction 〜




    I have begun to write a blog of


    how to grow a lemon.




    Its number of articles is "56" a little.




    I couldn't find an article.


    Where, did I write that article?




    If there is not "a summary",


    each article terminates in each article.





    From such thought,


    I compile each article


    as "a book of one how to grow a lemon".





    I think that it takes considerable time


    so that each article is completed.








    I should be able to update it


    while inspecting it every day.

    1、Fascinate to grow a lemon



      Fascinate to grow a lemon

       in a house.



    Almost persons reading this article


    already have a purpose (charm)


    to cultivate by yourself.



    Because you'll already make a fruit tree,


    vegetables or be going to make a lemon


    from now on.



    One of a fascinate to grow a lemon in a


    house is what we can harvest it at the


    most delicious time. The commercial


    fruit and vegetables are harvested


    before the most ripen fully.



    This is because it takes time before it


    reaches the consumers. The citrus


    fruits become sweet with growth.



    As for the lemon which ripened fully


    with becoming the tree, both the taste


    and the fragrance are totally another


    thing. You can taste a genuine taste


    at seasonal time.





    Another fascinate to grow a lemon in a


    house is what we can eat pesticide-free


    fruit, vegetables.



    In the case of an import lemon, we use


    a preservative (mold materials or wax-


    proof) not to be corrupt from the


    foreign country to the transportation.



    It does not have a problem that you


    eat a lemon after removing peel of





    However, I want to be concerned


    with a pesticide-free lemon when I


    think about a carcinogenic


    teratogenic risk and seem to become.



    The lemon in particular,


    vitamin C is included in the peel of


    lemon as same as in the fresh and fruit


    juice of lemon.



    When you thought about nourishment,


    you should be able to eat the peel of


    lemon, too.



    I put a slice lemon in the tea. The lemon


    to put in the tea has better lemon with


    the peel.




    As a matter of course, there is not only


    the charm "eating" but also the charm


    "appreciating". I only look at the flower


    of the lemon sweetly, and a heart calms





    In addition, citral and limonene are


    included in a bag (oil gland) to collect


    a fragrance ingredient called the


    essential oil in to the rind of a fruit


    of the lemon. So that; is unique;


    smell refreshing.



    This is included in the leaf of the


    lemon. I cut a leaf, and I prune it,


    and the fragrance of the lemon


    sometimes spreads.





    Why will I be going to grow a lemon? 


    Because the reason consumes vitamin C


    deliciously. This is because it drinks


    the lemon mixed juice which squeezed


    a lemon raw.



    A lemon is one tree, and a fruit grows.


    In addition, in the case of  other soft


    fruit, it will be deceived by a pest and


    bacteria, and it is difficult to grow.



    However, a lemon is hard to be deceived


    by a pest and can simplify the fruit


    which I can eat, because the rind of a


    fruit of the lemon is thick. How to grow


    lemons cannot be difficult.  










     ◆I went to Shimanami Kaido!



    In July, 2017, I went to Shimanami Kaido


    in two people with a wife.



    From the Hiroshima side, I passed with


    Mukaijima, Innoshima, Ikuchijima,


    Omishima, Hakatajima, Oshima and


    went to Imabari-shi, Ehime.




    レモンの木の育て方 栽培方法




    "Ikuchijima with Sedota-cho is 25km from


    Imabari-shi, Ehime. It is the island of


    approximately 8,700 population in the


    center of Shimanami Kaido.



    Because approximately 50% of the island


    are suddenly slanted in Ikuchijima,


    exposure to the sun is good. The amount


    of production of the lemon is number one


    in Japan."



    "Approximately a quarter (28%) of the


    domestic lemon is produced in Sedota-cho.



    However, among lemons consumed in


    Japan, the ratio that a domestic lemon is


    consumed is less than 5%. Consumed most


    lemons are from the United States.



    This is because a price is low. The lemon


    which a farming family of Sedota-cho


    aimed at was the richness of the


    fragrance and the lemon which I could


    eat in peace.



    The Sedota lemon holds down the


    consumption of a pesticide and the


    chemical fertilizer to less than 50%.


    It is the lemon which I can eat


    together with a zest."



    I who had begun to grow a lemon had a


    lot of various questions. I went to the


    place of the best domestic amount of


    production in Japan and wanted to learn


    "how to grow lemons".


    ( In fact, I wanted to buy a seedling


    most. ^^;)



    I went to "the lemon valley" in Sedota-


    cho. There are really a lemon, a lemon.


    A lot of trees of lemon.



    The person who wants to feel the world of


    a lot of lemons, please drop in once!

    2、The history of the lemon




    虫眼鏡 The first lemon



    When and where did the lemon come from?



    The place of origin of the lemon seems to


    be the foothills of the Himalayas in





    It is supposed that the lemon came out of


    the mating of a shaddock and a lemonade,


    but does not seem to understand the


    original thing that a lemon has begun to


    be cultivated clearly.



    More than 1,400 years ago, Arabic people


    of the Muslim liked lemons. They brought


    in a lemon in the future to go and seemed


    to go over to Spain and Sicily, the North





    In the 15th century, the lemon came to be


    cultivated flourishingly in Italy and





    It will be "to have healed scurvy" to


    have escalated the cultivation of the


    lemon still more.



    In about 1500, the scurvy is the disease


    that took sailors at voyages of Vasco da





    As for the sailor, gingiva of the top and


    bottom swelled up. And they could eat


    nothing and starved to death. They


    suffered from hand pedialgia and


    gingival swelling and died in sequence.



    For the next 300 years, the scurvy


    attacked sailors who went on a voyage


    for a long term.



    Vitamin C is indispensable for generation


    of protein and the collagen included in


    the connective tissue. Collagen is not


    produced enough when we spend time


    without eating raw fruit and vegetables


    more than three months. As a result,


    various symptoms such as the gingival


    swelling are early and finally result


    in death.



    In 1582, Sailors who were deceived by


    scurvy strike the shore of West Africa,


    and they eat the lemon which grew





    When they washed the mouth with the fruit


    juice of the lemon, somebody recovered


    from the symptom of the mouth.


    Such example seemed to be persuasive


    grounds that a lemon worked for scurvy.



    After that, the senior service provides


    with about 6 million liters of squeezes


    of lemon in 19 years.



    The squeeze of lemon was stored in a


    barrel under the layer of the olive oil.


    As a result, it is to have been able to


    keep it without ascorbate most of the


    fruit juice being lost.


    As a matter of course, a sailor starting


    scurvy disappears.



    The loading the lemon onto the ship is a


    chance to let the consumption of the


    lemon increase, and the lemon farm will


    enlarge in each place.






    虫眼鏡 A lemon came over to Japan.



    It is listed in "a history of Japanese


    fruit chronological table" as follows.



    "April, 1875, Saburo Takagi who was a


    consul general introduced the seed and


    saplings such as orange, a lemon, a


    strawberry, the hop from the United





    In addition, it is written with a


    different book as follows.



    It is the Meiji era after the foundation


    of a country that a lemon was handed


    down to Japan.



    The lemon was mixed in many foreign-made


    articles, too. When a foreigner came for


    a hot spring cure in Atami of Shizuoka


    in 1873, he sprinkled the species of the


    lemon contained in dinner on the garden.



    It does not know which story is right.


    But, around the beginning of the Meiji


    era, the lemon seemed to come to Japan.



    It is written in the cultivation history


    of "the Sedota lemon" as follows.


    In 1928, I plant 300 trifoliate orange


    young plants and perform bud grafting


    of Lisbon Eureka Lemon.



    In other words, I understand that the


    lemon cultivation began after the Showa







    3、About how to grow a lemon




     On the cultivation of the lemon



    👉 Area suitable for the cultivation

           of the lemon



    The lemon seems to like the land which


    drainage has good and the area with


    more than 15 degrees Celsius of mean





    In Japan, there is a lemon-growing area


    in the warm place of the south side from


    Kanto area. The slant ground of the


    mountains in the coastal area is a lemon


    -growing main area. Because chills do


    not collect, and drainage is good.



    A Setouchi lemon farm writes it, too.



    "Originally the area in Setouchi has


    little precipitation, and it is a warm


    area (mean temperature 15 degrees


    Celsius). It is a characteristic that


    there are many fine days.


    The lemon in particular is vulnerable to


    rain and wind. There are few typhoons,


    and, in this area with a little quantity


    of the wind, the outbreak of illness is


    controlled as much as possible and is


    the environment that is most suitable


    for a lemon. As for the lemon growing


    here, both the taste and the nourishment


    are fully included in the depths of the





    In particular, Sedota-cho is most


    suitable for lemon cultivation.


    This is because it wins a positive well


    as about half of the island is an


    immediate slant.



    And the lemon is vulnerable to cold.


    When temperature falls than -3 degrees


    Celsius, a tree weakens and seems to have


    possibilities to die. Therefore cold


    protection measures are necessary in the


    area becoming less than -3 degrees







    👉 The tree bears fruit with one



    The tree of lemon is pollinated and bears


    a fruit only with one tree.



    Therefore the pollination tree is not







    👉 Time is necessary before it bears


           a fruit for the first time



    The tree gives priority to bring up a


    body of oneself, rather than leaving the


    next generation (leaving fruit and a





    In other words, if the growth of a branch


    and a leaf of the tree becomes too much


    popular, most of the nourishment are used


    for the growth of a branch and the leaf ,


    and not be used for a flower and fruit ,


    and they are not accompanied by a flower


    and a fruit.



    In the case of a potted plant, It seem to


    be said to be need for 3 through 5 years


    before the fruit of the lemon grows for


    the first time.



    But, in the case of a planting in the


    garden, it seems to be said that we are


    necessary for 4 through 6 years.



    The growth of the root is limited, and


    this is because a branch and a leaf do


    not grow big in the case of a potted





    Therefore nourishment arrives to a flower


    and fruit, and a potted plant seems to


    bear a fruit early.


    As for the particularly young tree, a


    branch and a leaf grow well. If we cut a


    branch or pull it aside, force to grow up


    can be weakened.



    There seems to be a method to let a lot


    of flowers bloom by doing so.


    However, it seem to be necessary for


    around three years before a fruit grows


    after planting the seedling of the lemon.






    ◆How to buy young plants,


       various kinds



    👉 Stick seedling and large seedling



    We can classify the young plant roughly


    into "one stick stick seedling" and


    "large seedling which branched off a







    Stick seedling;


     A price is low          楽しい


    ◆It is available for much

     It is necessary for three years


      before a fruit grows at least  悲しい



    Large seedling;


     A price is high     悲しい


    ◆It is begun easily   楽しい


     A fruit grows early 楽しい




    <A large seedling is recommended in


     potted plants>



    For a potted young plant, a large


    seedling is recommended than a stick





    Because, it is just grew lemons with the


    bowl which it purchased, and it is early


    that a fruit grows for the first time.



    When we choose the large seedling,


    we choose the young plant which branches


    off from a part near the plant foot


    treatment if possible.



    The space where fruit becomes increases


    and can finish it compactly.




    The tree of lemon which I planted in my


    garden purchased a stick seedling in a


    gardening shop.



    And the potted lemon purchased a large


    seedling on the Internet.



    I understand each merit and demerit well.


    It is up to the thought of the person


    which seedling is good.



    But I think that you should purchase the


    seedling after knowing the seedling


    passed how many years.


    It seems to be difficult to harvest fruit


    from a young seedling.



    I think that there is the joy of "to just


    grow the tree of lemon".



    However, you should purchase the seedling


    which passed for several years if your


    first purpose is "to harvest the fruit of


    the lemon".



    Please think that you purchased the


    period (time). Even if the price of large


    seedling is high, you will think that


    "it was good early to bear a fruit".





    👉 When should we buy a seedling?



    In both the gardening shop and the net


    shop, the seedling of the lemon is sold





    The seedling of the lemon is sold only at


    this time, which means there will not be





    But, in a case of planting a lemon,


    A climate is calm. About March is


    good because the growth of the tree of


    lemon is slow.



    Therefore it is thought that you should


    purchase it at that time. In addition,


    September is also good becase a lot of


    seedlings having a fruit are sold.



    By the way, I purchased the young plant


    (large seedling) of the lemon for the


    potted plant on the Internet in the end


    of July. (there were four fruits!)



    I transplanted it into a one size big


    bowl immediately.


    I still grow well.


    (of course,four fruits are fine!)






    👉 How to choose good young plants



    There are many leaves. The green of


    the leaf is deep. A branch is enriched


    and thick.



    It is said that the seedling are good to


    buy. Even if a lot of flower and fruits


    grow , it is temporary.



    We want to just judge the purchase from


    the viewpoint of  銑 above. But we see


     銑 and can purchase it if we go to


    the home centers for buying by oneself. 



    However, we can't buy the seedling aftere


    check  銑 above if we buy it on the





    On the other hand, the young plant of the


    lemon is sold when we go to the gardening


    shop, but there are not many kinds (one


    kind - two kinds) and does not sell a


    lot. We can buy most kinds if we buy it


    in a net shop.
