Lemon, like many other citrus fruits, has Asian origins and has been cultivated for centuries in areas with a Mediterranean climate. It is an evergreen plant, whose vegetation continues its development throughout the year. The well-lit areas are planted, possibly with a good dose of direct sunlight every day; in areas with a very harsh winter climate, the lemon is grown in pots, so that it can be moved to a protected place with ease when winter arrives. The plant needs regular watering, practically all year round, intervening only when the soil is dry. The fertilization is carried out every 2-3 months, spreading at the base of the stem of the slow-release granular fertilizer, or of the specific fertilizer, consisting of ground lupins. Pruning is carried out only to remove the ramifications ruined by bad weather, as the plant carries flowers, unripe fruits and ripe fruits for most of the year; only in the case of plants developed in a particularly disharmonious way is the chamfering of the outer branches carried out. Often it happens that the rootstock of a lemon develops some branches, which must be immediately eliminated, because their growth occurs at the expense of the branches bearing fruits and flowers.
