How to grow lemon seeds, step by step, from germination of lemons seed to growing a lemon tree at a few weeks until 6 months old.

Lemon seeds are grown in five stages with almost a full year cameo from our Lemon tree that comes up at the end of the video!

One gardening tip for your newly sprouted lemon trees. Use a fertilizer called Neptune’s Harvest. It will cause your seedling to take off and grow faster.

Lemons sprout easily from the seed found inside the fruit, but growing a lemon tree from a seed just because you can isn’t always smart. 

If you want to go ahead and plant a lemon seed, then they are grown the same way as mandarins and other citrus.

Do not set the seeds aside to dry like regular seeds.

Drying lemon tree seeds reduces the germination rate drastically. 

Collect the Lemon Seeds

Wash the seed in plain water to remove any sugar sticking to the seed coat.

Place the seed in a cup of warm water and let it soak overnight.

How to germinate lemon seeds in paper towel

To store the citrus seeds, place them on a moist paper towel.

Keep about three times the amount of seeds that you want to plant in case some of them are not viable. 

Wrap the seeds in the damp paper towel and place them inside a sealable plastic bag. Place the bag in the refrigerator.

Keep your growing lemon tree seeds in an area that is around 70 degrees F. (21 C.); the top of the fridge is ideal.

Once the seedlings emerge, move the container into brighter light and remove the plastic. 

When the seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant them to larger, 4- to 6-inch (10-15 cm.) pots

How to germinate lemon seeds at home

  1. Moisten the potting soil so that it is damp, but not soaked, all the way through.
  2. Fill the smaller pot with soil, all the way up to an inch below the rim.
  3. Cut open your lemon and remove a seed. …
  4. Do not delay to plant. …
  5. Spray the soil that is directly above the seed gently with water from a spray bottle.

How Long Do Lemon Seeds Take To Grow?

It will take one or two weeks for germination.

Keep the plastic bag in a dark, warm location until the seeds sprout. Keep the temperature between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

Do Lemon Trees Grown From Seed Produce Fruit?

Time will tell. Yes, it should.

However, While your current lemon from the plant was probably consistently good fruit, the seed inside that fruit should be considered a whole new variety that is yet unknown.

Furthermore, it must produce after it’s own kind. Just like children each one is a little different.

Can you plant lemon seeds from a store bought lemon?

Yes, more that likely they will grow. Just do not let the lemon seeds dry out as it will hurt the germination process.

Can you grow a lemon tree indoors?

Yes. They can be grown as houseplants but come Spring and Summer they like to be in the full sun.

Wait until the temperature is steady above 60 degrees F and then you can place your lemon tree outside for the remainder of Summer.

How deep to plant lemon seeds?

Planting lemon seeds in soil you will have to sow them ½ inch (1 cm.) into the soil.

Planting Lemon Seeds in the Soil

  1. Moisten the potting soil so that it is damp, but not soaked, all the way through.
  1. Fill the smaller pot with soil, all the way up to an inch below the rim.
  1. Cut open your lemon and remove a seed. Remove all of the pulp from its surface. A good way to do this is to simply suck on it until it is clean.
  1. Do not delay to plant. The seed must still be moist when it is buried into the soil in the smaller pot. Plant the seed about half an inch deep in the middle of the pot.
  1. Spray the soil that is directly above the seed gently with water from a spray bottle.
  1. Cover the pot with clear plastic wrap, seal the edges with a good rubber band, and poke small holes in the top with a pencil.
  1. Place the pot in a warm, sunny location.
  1. Spray on more water occasionally, not allowing the soil to dry out. Do not cause water to puddle though. Just keep the soil somewhat moist.
  1. After about two weeks, when the sproutling emerges, take the plastic covering off. If you need additional light for your lemon plant, you can use a grow light to supplement the sun’s light.
  1. Take care of the young plant by keeping the soil damp, by making sure it gets at least eight full hours of light per day, and by giving it moderate doses of organic fertiliser like compost.
  1. Watch over your plant to ensure it is not attacked by bugs or diseases. Prune off brown, dead leaves when necessary.
  1. When the plant outgrows its small pot, put it in the larger pot. You will go through much the same procedure when you re-plant it as when you first planted.
  2. Younger plants need more water than older plants, but they all do need adequate water.
