I have one in my dining room window in MA. I usually get mine at the end of the year. All greatest yield this year, expecting four! LOL

I got some at Whole Foods in Rhode Island three weeks ago.

I have a couple of Meyer lemon trees in my back yard. The lemons are still pretty green and look like they will be ripe in a month. But, I am at 2200 feet elevation in the Napa valley. Other spots may be ahead of us ripening.

The citrus from California starts coming to stores in the West about November to late Feb., early March. I am not sure which geographic region you are in. South America is in Spring right now so they are not shipping citrus. Some fancy places stock hot house citrus for a longer season.

Depends where you are! In Berkeley, CA we can almost always find a Meyer lemon in the neighborhood. If you're thinking of upping your odds of finding them nation-wide, it might be a little early. But worth looking for if you really want them.

I haven't seen any in the markets in Portland yet. I generally find them in the late fall to winter, I'd say starting sometime in November.
