Bush Lemon Care: Learn About Growing Bush Lemon Shrubs


By: Teo Spengler

Are you growing bush lemon shrubs in your orchard? You might be without even knowing it. These rough, tough lemon trees are often used as rootstocks for more picky lemon cultivars. What is a bush lemon tree? Can you eat bush lemons? Read on for answers to all your questions about growing bush lemon shrubs.

What is a Bush Lemon?

You may think that the term “bush lemons” simply refers to any shrub that produces the citrus fruit, lemon. But you would be wrong.

What is a bush lemon? It is a large shrub or a small tree that produces dense evergreen foliage. The leaves are a glossy green. If you are thinking of growing bush lemon shrubs, you’ll find out that the white flowers have a lovely fragrance.

The plant also goes by the common name of rough lemon. The scientific name is Citrus limon jambhiri. While bush lemons grow in most areas of the world, they are especially popular in Australia.

Can You Eat Bush Lemons?

Growing bush lemon shrubs is not difficult as long as you live in a frost-free area. And bush lemon care is also quite easy. The bush lemon blossoms give way to the lemon fruit. These fruit are not smooth-skinned and attractive like the lemons you buy in the grocery, or grow at home.

Rather, the fruits are nobbly, thick-skinned and lumpy. They are lemon yellow and do produce juice, however. In fact, these are the preferred lemons to make the Australia’s famous Lemon Butter.

Can you eat bush lemons? Yes, you can, although not many people eat lemons like they eat oranges. Still, you will find many recipes on the Web using the juice, zest and rind. Bush lemon tree leaves can be used to make a tea and to prepare meat and seafood.

How to Grow a Bush Lemon

If you start growing bush lemon shrubs, you’ll find it is not difficult, nor is bush lemon care very time consuming. That is why this species is often used as rootstock for other lemon varieties.

Bush lemon plants are quite hardy, but they have a low frost tolerance. Plant your seeds in well-drained, fertile soil that gets plenty of sun.

As far as bush lemon care goes, you’ll need to provide your plant with regular irrigation, especially during the blossom period. If bush lemon shrubs don’t get enough water during flowering, the fruit can drop.

Growing Lemon Trees: A Complete Guide to Plant, Care, and Harvest Lemons

Steph Coelho

Steph is a certified Square Food Gardening Instructor who has been gardening for more than 10 years in Canada where the winters are long and cold, and the summers are unpredictable. She is a volunteer for her community's Incredible Edible project. In the past she created an educational gardening space for seniors and taught classes at a local community center where she created her own curriculum and activities. She participated in several local municipal garden days where she set up a booth to educate citizens about the joy of gardening.

I live in Montreal, Canada where the mercury drops significantly every winter. Some days, with the windchill, temps drop to -31°F. Bundling up is required most days, even when the sun is shining brightly. It’s virtually impossible to grow citrus fruit outdoors around here.

But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming about growing lemons. Who can resist the luscious, citrusy fruits?

I’ve experimented with growing lemons before, and I got oh-so-close to mastering it. I purchased a young lemon tree from a local nursery, got a large pot to fit it in and walked off to my home proud as could be. When I got home, I set the plant in a warm, sunny spot with a lamp for extra heat and light.

I watched over my new plant like a hawk. Little baby lemons started forming from the blooms, and I was already perusing recipe books to figure out what I would make. Then, my plant started dying.

The miniature lemons dropped off the plant, and the leaves turned yellow, then brown. I inspected the soil and leaves and could find no evidence of a pest infestation. What was going on?

Finally, my beloved lemon plant, almost in my home for a year and a half at this point, succumbed to its mysterious condition. As I took out the plant from its container, I realized what had gone wrong. At the bottom of the pot was a pool of water.

That’s when I realized that I had accidentally walked out of the store with a pot that was actually two pots stuck together. My error made it so that the self-draining system wasn’t able to function and the plant got waterlogged. In the end, the roots of my poor lemon tree rotted away without me having even the faintest idea what was happening.

Despite my misadventure, take heart knowing that anyone can succeed at growing lemons, whether you’re in the northern climate like mine or a warm, sunny location. Below, you’ll find all the info you need to grow lemons indoors or outside.


Lemons and Companion Planting: What to Plant (or Not) Near Your Lemon Tree

Evergreen and elegant, lemon trees make beautiful landscape plants. But what should be planted in the large areas under and around your lemon trees? Choose plants that are good companions for lemon trees, that is, plants that have similar cultural requirements.

The GardenZeus recommendation: no plantings and no use of mulch, with bare soil only, for a distance from any citrus tree’s trunk of 2 to 4 times the diameter of the trunk, and at least several inches to a foot or more from major root buttresses and surface roots. Gardeners who follow this recommendation avoid trapping moisture and encouraging conditions that favor pathogens detrimental to citrus trees.

GardenZeus recommends against planting under the driplines of lemon trees for three reasons. First, healthy trees have a dense, evergreen canopy that blocks sunlight. Second, gardeners need access to the area under lemon trees to harvest lemons and prune the tree. Third, established citrus trees require dry conditions in the upper soil. Avoid planting thirsty or shallow-rooted plants within the driplines of citrus trees the water needs of these plants may encourage disease and pest infestation in citrus. Under the deep shade of the dense, everygreen canopy, few plants can thrive, and those few who might thrive in the shade, will need more water than the citrus tree will like.

If maintained and pruned well, citrus trees make excellent companions with other citrus trees, regardless of variety, when planted 2 to 5 feet apart as evergreen espaliers, hedges, or living fences, or when planted intensively with up to four trees planted in a single hole and grown as a single tree.

What to Plant and What to Avoid. A wide range of plants are appropriate for planting near or under citrus beginning from slightly inside to slightly outside a tree’s dripline. Consider utilizing the space near and surrounding citrus with fragrant herbs and edible or ornamental plants that will support the living systems in your garden and landscape, such as those that feed insects, birds, or the soil, to the benefit of your plants. Many plants in the Apiaceae family have beautiful umbellate flowers that are especially attractive to beneficial insects, such as ladybugs and lacewings. Flowering plants with a high sugar content in their nectar often support adult beneficial insects and butterflies. Also, consider plants with abundant small flowers from the mint or aster families. Avoid root crops whose cultivation and harvest may disturb shallow citrus feeder roots.

Fertilizer

Lemon trees need applications of nitrogenous fertilizer throughout the growing season to promote fruit production. Give trees two to three years old about 2 tablespoons of actual nitrogen just before watering two to four times a year. Fertilize mature trees with 2 to 3 pounds of nitrogen each year, scattering the fertilizer over the root area and then watering the soil. In addition, giving your tree a balanced citrus food may correct mineral deficiencies in the soil and promote growth.

Lemon trees make an excellent addition to almost every backyard and if you get the growing process right, you're ensured a regular, plentiful crop.

Varieties

The most common lemon varieties grown in Australia are Eureka, Lisbon and Meyer. Eureka produces its main crop in winter with smaller crops in spring and summer. Eureka lemons have relatively few seeds and the tree is virtually thornless growing to around four metres in height.

Lisbon is thornier and produces its main crop in winter, however is tends to be more cold tolerant. It grows around three to four metres tall.

Meyers has a milder, less acidic flavour with a smooth, thin rind. It's main crop is produced in winter but it can crop continuously throughout the year. It's a small tree growing to around two metres in height, making it the ideal lemon tree to grow in a pot.

Climate

Preferred climate depends on the variety of lemon, however most do well in warm climates. They tolerate drought and are sensitive to frost.

Aspect

Lemon trees require a position in full sunlight that is protected from winds and frost. If you're growing a lemon tree in a cooler climate, plant it close to a brick wall so it can utilise the radiating heat.

Soil

Lemon trees can tolerate a range of different soils but they mostly prefer slightly acidic, well-drained soil.

Planting

You can plant lemon trees at any time of year in warmer climates, as long as you water regularly. In cold regions plant in spring to protect it from late frosts.

Citrus will thrive in large containers. Choose a pot with a diameter of 50cm or more, with plenty of drainage holes, and fill with a premium quality potting mix. Place your potted citrus in a sunny place in the garden, and make sure the plant is kept moist at all times. You will need to feed with a Citrus Fertiliser regularly.

It’s a great idea to stand your pot on a trolley so you can easily move the pot to a sunnier or more protected position with the changing seasons.

If you're planting a lemon tree in the garden, start by d igging a planting hole twice a wide and as deep as pot your citrus comes in. Remove the pot and inspect the roots. Untangle any that appear to be circling around or those that are tightly packed into the shape of the pot. Plant so that the original soil level in the pot is level with your garden soil. Backfill the hole with the removed crumbled soil, and work compost or well-rotted cow manure into the top 10cm of soil. Add a mulch of straw to the soil surface, but keep this away from the trunk.

Water immediately after planting and from then on keep the soil slightly moist.

Water

Lemons grow best in soils that are moist but not soggy. Water your tree every seven to 10 days during the summer, providing it with 4 to 6 inches of water each month. Allow the soil around mature trees to partially dry between waterings. Overwatered lemon trees may suffer from crown and root rots, while those not watered enough frequently shed blossoms and don't produce as much fruit.

Feeding

Citrus produce loads of fruit! All that flowering and fruiting is a big consumer of energy so make sure you feed up your lemon tree to ensure further crops. You will tell if your tree is undernourished by poor stunted growth, or yellowing leaves. Feed twice a year with a citrus food, once in February and again in August. Follow the directions on the packet and water the soil well both before and after apply the fertiliser.

Pruning

Pruning lemon trees is important for growing healthier and more plentiful fruit.

It's best to prune your lemon tree from late winter to early spring, right after harvest. Young trees should be pruned to establish a good shape, remove any sprouts or weak limbs so the plant can focus on growing a strong canopy.

As the tree grows, prune any crossing limbs, tangled branches or dead wood. Main scaffold branches should be staggered, aim to maintain eight once the plant is established. Prune subsidiary shoots off these scaffold branches. Aim to prune 20 percent of the canopy each year, focusing on longer, protruding branches that affect the desired shape of the canopy. Thinning out of branches as trees age allows light to penetrate more areas of the tree encouraging fruit production inside the canopy as well.

Skirting is also essential, this process involves pruning the branches and limbs that hang down to the ground as this allows for better air movement under the trees and reduces fungal problems and insect infestations. Prune this low growth to lift the ‘skirt’ to around one metre high.

Harvesting

Lemon trees generally take around two to three years to bear fruit and harvesting depends on the variety of plant. Eureka's produce fruit two to three time a year while Lisbon's fruit once a year.

Lemons are ready to harvest when they have developed full colour and flavour. Harvest lemons when their peels are yellow or only a green tinge, with a slightly glossy appearance. The longer the fruit stays on the tree the sweeter it will become so some suggest picking and tasting your fruit to determine how the crop is developing.

To pick lemons, use the twist, tilt and snap method. Take the the entire fruit in your hand and twist it gently, tilting and pulling away until it breaks free.

Propagation

To propagate a lemon tree it's best to a cutting in late spring, early summer. Choose a 15 centimetre piece of a healthy young branch without fruit or flowers and at least two to three nodes at the base. Us a non-serrated, sanitised knife to cut the stem at a 90-degree angle. Wrap cuttings in a moist paper towel to prevent dehydration.

Remove bottom leaves so the cutting has only three or so leaves at the top and dust the bottom with a hormone-based rooting powder. Plant the cutting in a large, well-draining pot with seed starter mix and cover it with a large clear plastic bag to create a warm, humid environment. Use chopsticks, wire or dowel to keep the bag from resting on the cutting. Keep the soil moist

Once roots develop, remove the plastic covering. After a few days move the cutting outside in a sheltered location. Once the roots of the plant nearly fill its pot its time to plant it in a larger pot or garden.

Problems

Scale insect: F ound on stems and leaves, they have a waxy brown shell. Spray these sap sucking insects with organic eco oil.

Leaf Miner: Tiny burrowing mites causing silvery trails and twisted leaves. They attack only fresh new leaves, so spray the new growth once a fortnight with eco oil until the leaves have matured and turned a dark green colour.

Stink bugs: May appear in large numbers form October. Knock them off the branches and squish them underfoot, but wear protective goggles as then bugs can squirt a painful liquid into your eyes.

Sooty mould: A black crusty coating on the leaves indicating the presence of a sap sucking insect lurking higher up, such as aphids, scale or mealy bugs. Treat the insect above and the sooty mould will clear up by itself. The mould is not harmful, it just looks yucky.


The Benefits of Lemon in Your Diet

Not only do lemons smell great and taste even better, but they also contain a ton of health benefits.

Lemon’s health benefits include the following:

1 – Detoxing the liver and bloodstream.

Squeezing one fresh lemon into a cup of warm water and drinking it when you wake up in the morning cleans out your liver and takes the toxins out of your bloodstream. A glass of warm lemon water, with a touch of honey added, remains an excellent way to improve the way you feel and look by removing toxins from your system.

2 – Add Vitamin C to Your Diet.

It provides a daily dose of Vitamin C to prevent and reduce the symptoms of many illnesses such as colds, sore throats, bronchial problems, and fevers. A simple way to ease a sore throat is to combine equal amounts of lemon juice and warm water. Take a bit of lemon juice into your mouth, rinse with the mixture, and then spit it out. Next, rinse your mouth out with plain water.

3 – Improve heart health.

Both lemon juice and the fiber gained from the fruit’s pulp have been shown to reduce getting heart disease or having a stroke. Combine drinking lemon-infused water with a walking routine each day, and you will reduce your blood pressure, according to research. Ultimately, this will make a profound impact on your general wellness and heart health.

4 – Better oral health.

Drinking lemon juice can keep your gums healthier. That’s because a deficiency in Vitamin C can show up in your body as tender, swollen, or bleeding gums.

6 – Improves the appearance of your hair.

Make a lemon-based rinse to help heal up any split ends and keeps your hair from looking frizzy and dry. Just two tablespoons of juice mixed with a cup of water can give your hair shine, reduce dandruff, and control an oily scalp.

8 – Better hydration helps eliminate kidney problems

Research reveals that drinking this citrus in your tea or water increases can help to promote healthy kidneys for two reasons. First, the citric acid helps prevent the build-up of uric acid that causes the stones to form, to begin with. Second, the better-flavored water makes it more palatable. Thus, people tend to keep hydrated.

9 – Use lemon for a natural antibacterial cleanser.

Wounds heal easier when you eat or drink the right amount of lemon juice. If you have a cut or scrape, clean the area and put a bit of lemon juice on the injured area. Science suggests that the reason this is so effective as both an antibacterial and an antioxidant stems from a compound called limonene.

10 – Lemon juice contains many of the same properties of aspirin.

You can combine green tea and lemon juice to stop headache pain. The juice of this citrus fruit also causes sweating and helps get rid of fevers, colds, and other symptoms of illness.

11 – A useful cure for unsightly pimples or acne scars.

One of the most straightforward, most natural cures for acne and pimples is lemon juice. The citrus fruit’s juice remains both antifungal and antibacterial. When you clean your skin, use lemon juice as a toner. It will shrink pores, tighten your skin, and fight the germs that cause acne. You should also use a sunscreen when you go outdoors, as lemon juice makes the skin more susceptible to sunburn.

Applying lemon juice helps to lighten age spots and even the color of your skin.

How does our favorite yellow fruit achieve all this? Remember the antioxidants we mentioned earlier? (see #9). They help protect your skin from further damage. Meanwhile, the topical application helps to turn over dead skin cells for faster healing.

Final Thoughts on Growing Lemons and Enjoying Their Benefits

You’ve grown lovely lemon trees from seeds you planted. You have plenty of fresh lemons for your personal use. The best way to gain this fruit’s health benefits remains to add them to your diet. Drinking lemon juice gets the vitamins into your system to detoxify it. Even better, eating the whole fruit adds fiber and even more healthful vitamins to your diet.


Types of Lemons

1. Eureka Lemon (Citrus x limon “Eureka”)

Mature Size: 20 feet tall

Hardiness Zone: 9 and 10

Light: Full sun

Water: Water generously

Soil: Well-draining, neutral to alkaline pH

Special Features: Produces fruit all year round

The Eureka lemon tree is considered to be a true lemon tree, as it is not the result of any hybridization. It was brought over to the United States in seed form from Italy in the middle of the 19th century and has been growing in the warmer states ever since.

It requires a climate that gets neither too hot or too cold and therefore fares best in USDA hardiness zones 9 and 10. Any temperatures lower than 20° F will cause significant damage to the Eureka lemon tree, so if a temperature drop is expected in your area, then you’ll need to bring your lemon tree indoors until warmer weather returns.

The Eureka lemon tree typically grows to 20 feet in height and can be grown in a raised bed or a sturdy container, though dwarf varieties do exist, which are maybe more suitable for container growing. Plant your Eureka lemon tree in a spot that gets full sun. These trees require plenty of sun to thrive and do best in positions where they receive 10 to 12 hours of sun a day. They can be grown in partial shade with 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day, but in these conditions, they may struggle to bear fruit, and growth will be slower.

These trees also need plenty of moisture, and you should aim to maintain consistently moist soil, only ever allowing the top inch or two to dry out. During hot, dry weather, you may need to water every day, or even twice a day. As Eureka lemon trees have such high watering needs, they are not suitable for growing in the yard among the grass, as lawns do not enjoy this level of moisture.

Eureka lemon trees are attractive plants to grow. They have bronze colored new growth, while older leaves develop into a bright shade of green. The great thing about this tree is that it doesn’t have a dormancy period and therefore can produce fruit all year long. Eureka lemons are among the typical lemons you will find at the grocery store, suitable for cooking with or using in drinks. They are commercially popular because of their reliable flavor and continuous growing season.

Eureka lemons start out yellow-green but develop to the bright lemon yellow we are all familiar with.

2. Pink Variegated Lemon Tree (Citrus xlimon “Eureka Variegated Pink”)

Mature Size: Up to 15 feet tall

Hardiness Zone: 9 and 10

Light: Full sun

Water: Water generously

Soil: Well-draining

Flower Color: Pink

Special Features: Pink fleshed lemons

This cultivar of the Eureka lemon tree is an especially attractive ornamental plant, producing low-seed acidic lemons. The foliage of this plant is variegated, with glossy, ovate leaves splashed in random patches of creamy yellow.

It produces pretty flowers which bloom from vibrant pink buds throughout the year, though they are at their most abundant during spring and summer. The fruits of this tree are round, and young lemons have unique green striping. As the lemons ripen, their skin takes on a solid yellow color, while the inner flesh is pale pink. The fruit is produced all year round and is ideal for use in cooking or as a garnish.

This tree requires full sun to give its best performance, though it will tolerate a partially shaded position. This tree is the most tender of all lemon trees and will need to be brought inside to live in a bright and warm room, only being left outside during the warmer months.

Eureka lemons start out yellow-green but develop to the bright lemon yellow we are all familiar with.

3. Lisbon Lemon (Citrus limon “Lisbon”)(Citrus x limon “Lisbon”)

Mature Size: Up to 30 feet tall

Hardiness Zone: 8-10

Light: Full sun

Water: Medium moisture

Soil: Well-draining

Flower Color: White

Special Features: Heat and wind tolerant

The Lisbon lemon tree is capable of growing quite tall in the right conditions, growing up to 30 feet in height, with a spread of 25 feet, though more typically you can expect to see these trees grow to 15 feet in height, or even smaller if they are kept in a container.

Lisbon lemons are an old heirloom variety, which is believed to have their origins in Portugal. They have been growing in the United States since the 1840s and are now the most widely grown type of lemon tree in California. These trees produce reliable lemons that are large, have very few seeds, and are exceptionally juicy.

The tree can bear fruit all year round, though the main harvest times will be in the spring and winter when an abundance of fruit is ripe and available. Don’t expect your young lemon tree to produce fruit, as this usually doesn’t happen until year three. More mature trees will fruit the most profusely and will experience pretty white flowers all year round. Once your Lisbon tree does produce fruit, it tends to do so quite heavily, so you should never be without some fresh lemons in the kitchen.

The Lisbon lemon tree is easy to care for and is tolerant of heat, wind, and cold. It won’t need a protected position as the Eureka lemon would, and it is probably the most cold-hardy of all true lemon trees, though any climates which drop below freezing for more than a few days a year aren’t appropriate locations for this tree.

Instead, grow your Lisbon lemon tree in a pot so that it can be moved inside during cold snaps, or insulate it with a blanket if it is grown outside. You can also drape string lights between the branches, as this may help to increase the temperature by a few degrees.

As well as being easy to care for, the Lisbon lemon tree is aesthetically pleasing. It has glossy green leaves, and its white blooms give off a pleasant aroma.

This tree will require a full sun position, and in its first few years, will need a generous watering. As the tree does not cope well with soggy roots, it should be grown in well-draining soil, which will allow any excess water to pass through easily. If planting directly in the ground, you could plant the tree in an elevated position so that water runs off and doesn’t have the opportunity to pool around the base of the tree.

After a few years, you can reduce your watering schedule to weekly during the warmer months, and bi-weekly in the cooler months. As the tree matures, it will need less water. Like all lemon trees, the Lisbon lemon tree relies on rich soil or feedings of fertilizer to really thrive.

4. Meyer Lemon (Citrus x Meyerii)

Mature Size: Up to 10 feet tall

Hardiness Zone: 8-11

Light: Full sun to partial shade

Water: Maintain moist soil

Soil: Well-draining

Flower Color: White and purple

Special Features: Dwarf variety

The Meyer lemon tree is not a ‘true’ lemon tree, but instead is a hybrid which originates from China. It is a cross between a lemon and a sweet orange such as a mandarin. This is one of the smaller lemon trees, growing to between 6 and 10 feet tall and is ideal for growing in a container.

The key benefit of growing the tree in a container is that it is portable and therefore able to be moved indoors during the winter. This is a great way to make lemon growing possible even if you live in cooler climates, though if you live in a warm climate where temperatures rarely drop below 50º F, you can plant this tree in the ground where it can remain all year round.

The fruit of this tree looks like lime when young, rounder than true lemons and with a lime green skin. As the lemon ripens, it takes on the typical yellow shade, with a strong fragrance and thin skin. These lemons have a more subtle flavor than the Eureka or Lisbon lemons, which are widely available in grocery stores. Instead, they have a sweeter taste, with a dark yellow flesh and usually around 10 seeds. The Meyer lemon tree is capable of bearing fruit from just 2 years of age when grafted or from 4 years old when grown from seed. The flowers it produces are white and purple, with a very intense scent.

In the United States in the 1940s, the Meyer lemon tree was found to be carrying a deadly citrus virus. In order to protect other citrus trees, all Meyer lemon trees were destroyed, and it became a banned species. Fortunately, a virus-free Meyer lemon tree was found and released in 1975. It is known as the ‘Improved Meyer lemon tree’ (Citrus x Meyerii ‘Improved’), and this is where the Meyer lemons in the US now stem from.

5. Primofiori Lemon (Citrus x Limon ‘Primofiori’)

Mature Size: Up to 16 feet

Hardiness Zone: 8-10

Light: Full sun

Water: Maintain moist soil

Soil: Well-draining

Special Features: Fruits heavily

This tree hails from Spain, where it is locally known as the Fino lemon tree, the Blanco lemon tree, or the Mesero lemon tree. The fruit is exported under the name of Primofriori lemons, though be careful not to confuse these with Primofiore, which are from Italy.

This lemon tree is grown extensively in the Mediterranean region and is the most largely commercially produced lemon in Spain. The trees have a vigorous growth habit, with large leaves and dense foliage. The fruit it produces is pale yellow in color, with a thin and smooth skin. Lemons can be round or oval, and are smaller in size than most other lemon varieties, though they tend to be much juicier.

This tree has many similarities with the Eureka lemon tree, but the key distinguishing feature is that the Primofiori lemon tree is heavily thorned, while the Eureka lemon tree is not. This tree requires 8-10 hours of sun each day and is best situated in a full sun location. It is a heavy fruit producer, able to bear fruit from 2 or 3 years old. Its main harvest will be in the winter, though smaller harvests will be available throughout the year.

It is suitable for growing in a container where it can be pruned to a smaller height and maintained at around 5 feet tall (University of California Riverside).

6. Verna Lemon (Citrus x Limon ‘Verna’)

Mature Size: Up to 20 feet tall

Hardiness Zone: 8-10

Light: Full sun

Water: Maintain moist soil

Soil: Well-draining

Flower Color: White

Special Features: Vigorous growth

This lemon tree is native to Spain, where it is the second most important lemon tree after the Primofiori. It is widely known as both Verna and Berna. The fruits of this tree are less appealing for consumption than other lemons, as they tend to have a thick rind and do not contain much juice.

However, the tree has a vigorous growth habit and is ornamentally attractive. It can grow to be quite large, though it is also suitable for growing in a container if it is annually pruned. Its main crop is ready for harvest between spring and summer, with lemons which are bright yellow and of a medium to large size. The rind of these lemons is usually quite textured, on oval fruits which have a very pronounced neck.
