They do just fine in JAX area!!!!!

Gainesville, FL(Zone 9a)

I grew up in Melbourne ( Indialantic), and they do just fine. They probably do better on the mainland, I know oranges do.

Rockledge, FL(Zone 9b)

Our tree in Rockledge was doing good for years, had a lot of big lemons, just until it was infested with something, canker maybe. I try to save with spraying - but no, it was incurable. Just cut it last week. :(

Still have to watch the cold. We had one in Ocala andit did well, though small. We sold that house and noticed this past winter the cold had done it in. Most people in the Ocala area cover their citrus--there were some nights down to 16--kinda why we don't live there anymore!!

I think a lot depends on the "stock" the plant is grafted on. Some is hardier; some stays smaller. Hopefully if you find a good, local nursery, you will get one that does well in your area.

Indian Harbour Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

I live in Indian Harbour Beach; I have my first fruit this year and they're all quite healthy looking and beginning to turn yellow. I hope the tree makes it through the "greening" happening in our state.

I have one lone lemon. The tree was loaded with flowers, then we had that one late freeze.

Mine, although still green and just starting to yellow have been delicious. Some are splitting due to the lovely rains we have had.
