The technique of planting seedless lemons is wrong all year round

Seedless lemon is a plant that can adapt to many different conditions and soils, so it does not require a lot of planting and fertilization techniques.

Seedless lemon is a widely adapted fruit tree in our country. Lemon has many components that are suitable for human nutritional needs, especially vitamin C content is very high.

Seedless lemons have been imported from California (USA) into our country for about 10 years now. The tree can grow up to 6m tall, the stem is thornless, the foliage is round, the fruit is clustered, seedless (or only a few seeds).

The outstanding advantage of seedless lemon is that it gives fruit all year round, can yield 150-200 kg/year/tree. The tree also has very strong disease resistance, especially not infected with green vein disease like other citrus trees. However, when it comes to the technique of growing seedless lemon trees, not everyone knows the correct planting process so that the tree produces flowers and fruits all year round. Here are the steps to guide the most standard seedless lemon cultivation technique.

Land for planting

Seedless lemon has a wide adaptability to the living environment, so choosing the right soil for lemon trees is not too difficult a requirement. Seedless lemon is suitable for all types of soil as long as the soil is not waterlogged and watered in the dry season is enough. But for the lemon tree to grow optimally, good soil is also a matter of priority. Therefore, the most suitable soil is loose, humus-rich soil. It is necessary to take measures to prevent waterlogging and drought for trees right now.

Techniques for growing seedless lemon trees

Seedless Lemon tree planting techniques can be grown all year round, especially in the Winter-Spring crop in February-March, in the Autumn-Winter crop in August-October.

Before proceeding with the technique of planting seedless lemon trees, we need to dig a hole 1-2 months in advance, in the lowlands, the hole is 30-40cm deep, and the hill soil is 60-80cm deep.

Then it is necessary to prepare the amount of fertilizer as follows: Rotten manure: 20-30 kg; phosphate fertilizer 0.5 kg; potassium 0.1kg; lime powder 1 – 1.5 kg. Mix the amount of fertilizer with the soil, water, about 10-15 days later to plant. Remember to plant the distance between 2.5m x 2.5m, density is 1,600 trees/ha.

If it is a branch, it should be tilted to a tree with few branches, helping the side shoots to grow up to create a canopy. Stick a stake to tie the tree trunk to prevent the wind from shaking the tree. If it is a grafted plant, rotate the graft to the main wind direction, fill with soil at the root neck or 1-2 cm high, to avoid breaking the pot or filling the soil too deeply.

Fertilization and care

Because the seedless Lemon tree produces fruit 4 to 5 times a year, it is not necessary to handle the off-season, but the most necessary is fertilizer to be enough for the tree to flower, grow fruit and develop. The most important is the amount of phosphorus and potassium for plants. These are 2 factors related to growth and development. In addition, it is necessary to fertilize calcium every month so that the process of transportation and absorption inside the plant takes place regularly and is also a factor to limit diseases in the garden.

In the technique of planting seedless lemon trees with high efficiency, disease prevention is also very important.

Prevention and treatment of diseases

In the technique of growing seedless lemon trees with high efficiency, disease prevention is also very important. The best way to prevent disease is to prune branches. This is a stage that affects productivity and disease in the garden, so regularly check to remove old, weak, and introverted branches. These are underdeveloped branches, so it will be the weakest stage for diseases on the stem to penetrate, most typically stem borers.

Notes when harvesting

  • Pick up all the small fruits that are still on the tree
  • Use leaves to prune overhanging shoots, cut small branches, old branches, and toothpicks growing in the canopy to make the tree airy, creating conditions for early summer and autumn branches to mature.
  • At the same time, use a toothed rake to lightly dig up the soil to cut off the roots to help the plant prepare to differentiate flower buds and flower early next year, ie February-March.
  • In early December, stop watering to create a drought for the plants for about 1 month, then fertilize again and water for 2-3 consecutive days, the plants will flower simultaneously.
  • If it rains, cover the roots with plastic to prevent rainwater from seeping into the soil around the tree.
