Lemon trees should be planted in full sun. They produce fruit year-round if planted in an appropriate climate. They cannot tolerate temperatures below 28 degrees unless "protected". They are considered a semi-tropical plant and will not grow outdoors in cold climates. Most trees will grow to 10 or 15 feet in height in a Mediterranean climate.
