Lemon

Citrus limon

A sure sign of a warm climate, the lemon tree produces hundreds of sparkling yellow fruits. You'll always know when the trees are blooming thanks to the intense fragrance of the flowers; a single tree in bloom can perfume an entire landscape. Lemons grow best in western states where there is less humidity and the growing season is long and warm. Plan to prune the trees regularly to maintain a small size for easy harvest.
