Description

Also called mexican lime

Perfect for making a delectable pie. Fragrant white flowers and small, juicy limes set this evergreen tree apart. May bloom again while fruit still remains on the tree, allowing for different harvest intervals. Heat-tolerant. Fruit takes about 6-9 months to ripen. Self-pollinating.

  • Mature size can be kept smaller by pruning.
  • If you live in a cooler climate, plant these warm-weather plants in containers so that you can move them indoors before freezing temperatures arrive.

i have an area thats only about two feet wide but 50ft in length. do you think thats adequate space.?
Judy G on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It would be a tight fit, but as long as it gets full sun there (6-8 hours daily) and air can flow through to keep fungal issues down, then it could work. I'd be most concerned about the light availability if there is only 2 feet of space there. Light equates to healthy growth and development of the tree as well as its flowers and fruit.
