EUREKA LEMON (AUSTRALIA VARIETY)
Eureka (48% of Australian lemon plantings) – there are a number of selections of Eureka, which are fairly similar. The two most commonly used clones in Australia are Taylor and Lambert. Management practices have a greater effect on fruit quality and yields than choice of clone. Eureka is incompatible with P. trifoliata and all citrange rootstocks except Benton citrange. In some regions Eureka tends to produce flowers at several times of the year. Sometimes cultural practices can be manipulated to produce larger summer crops which generally attract very high returns. Eureka is moderately vigorous, virtually thornless, sparsely foliaged with the main crop produced in winter and smaller crops in spring and summer. Fruit is normally produced in terminal clusters at the ends of branches.
