When I read descriptions of Meyer Lemons, they are often said to be much smaller than Eureka or Lisbon lemons but that is not the case with DMS lemons, which are consistently larger than conventional lemons. What makes the difference? Younger trees tend to produce fewer but larger lemons and proper fertilization will add to lemon size. Conventional growers often cut back on fertilizer to keep lemon size down but this can stress the trees just when they are trying to produce a lot of fruit.
Our liquid fertilizer is derived from fishmeal and vegetable proteins and has been sterilized to remove any potential pathogens. We inject this into the drip irrigation system so that the trees get the most use of it and there is no run off into streams. This system keeps the amount of fertilizer down while helping the trees to reach full health.
