      Three lemon cultivar selection trials are being conducted at the Yuma Mesa Agriculture Center in Somerton, AZ. Data from these trials suggest that 'Limonero Fino 49' and 'Cascade Eureka' selections may be a suitable alternative for the varieties most commonly planted in Southwest Arizona today. 'Femminello' and 'Villafranca' might also be planted on an experimental basis

      Lemons were treated with several plant growth regulators for the 2006-07 season, with the hope of improving fruit size. These PGR’s included Bluestim, Accel, Maxim and MT1350. Although there were some increases in yield, these were just trends, and were not statistically significant. Similarly, there was no improvement in fruit size with application of the treatments.
