This lemon tree is on display at the Cours Saleya Market in the Old Town of Nice in Provence, France and is calling out for somebody to take it home. The lemons are fairly close to being ripe and one would not even have to wait for its first batch of fruit to grow as picking is already near.A healthy lemon tree can grow to be as tall as ten to twenty feet and the fruit is oval shaped looking similar to that of an orange only smaller and yellower in color. The leaves have a reddish coloring to them when the tree is young and change into a dark green color as it matures. When the lemon tree flowers, there will be single flowers or a cluster of two or more with four or five petals on each flower.When planting a lemon tree outside, the right climates are required as they can be fairly finicky. A lemon tree indoors as a houseplant can grow quite nicely with well-drained soil and large containers, the only downfall being that the height of them can be a small problem. There are many different types of lemon trees and if are wanting your lemon tree to be indoors, shop around for the right type of tree that does not reach enormous heights.The Cours Saleya Market in the Old Town of Nice in Provence, France is opened daily except for Mondays and if a lemon tree is what you after, then you will find a beautiful display of them here. It is best to get to the market early so that you can get the first pick of the litter as the market packs in the people as the day goes on.Lemon tree at the markets, Cours Saleya in the Old Town of Nice, Provence, Cote d'Azur, France, Europe.
