If I were doing this over again, I would plant a Eureka instead of Lisbon.
Eureka isn't as productive as Lisbon but still yields enough fruit for one
or two families.  And it isn't so thorny so you don't get all bloody from
picking the fruit.  But both Lisbon and Eureka trees can get pretty big and
are probably not a good choice for containers. -Olin
