Is this a true Key Lime tree? Your picture shows green skin on the fruit and from my experience key limes have a thin yellow skin with green fruit.
Bill C on Jun 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These are true Key Limes. The photos was taken before the limes were quite ripe, at which time they are yellow.
can I grow this plant in side in the winter and out side In summer?
henry y on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That is what I have been doing. Inside I have been using a grow light system. It has survived the winter (so far!). I actually put it back outside today for the first time this year. I will bring it into the garage or house when it freezes, until spring comes.
I have a lime tree that was purchased last April that lived outside all summer and did fine all winter indoors. I live in Missouri. I was ready to put it outside this week because of the nice warm weather. However a few days ago it's suddenly started dropping leaves and turning yellow so now I hesitate Putting it outside. Any ideas?
Mary B on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Citrus trees drop their leaves as a sign of stress. The yellow color could be a sign of overwatering or a nutrient deficiency. Only water potted trees when the soil is dry to the touch to avoid overwatering and make sure they are planted in a container with adequate drainage. Fortunately, once the stress factor passes (which can include temperature changes, light changes, lack of humidity, etc.), otherwise healthy citrus trees put on new leaves to replace the ones that drop in time. Placing your tree outdoors, as long as the weather remains above 55-60??F, should be fine. It may even help encourage new leaves to grow.

I killed this one
I will give Lavern credit (yes I named her) she made it a good solid 9 months... I went to the hospital to have a baby, but God gives, and God takes away... And we don't always know why. Lavern was in good health when I received her, but after potting her she never did look as good as her sister (the Orange tree aka Shirley), when I came home all of her leaves had fallen off. I don't know if that supposed to happen but I didn't want to upset Shirley, so I seperated them... And then I kind of forgot about her so... She's really dead now. On the plus side, the baby's doing great! Haven't forgo to feed or water her once!

Getting fruit to set
I got one of these two years ago. It flowered very well last winter all the way till July. No fruit stayed on tree. This winter it bloomed again in January and I tried to pollinate by hand. No luck. Spring came and it still was blooming. Moved it outside (after the scare of frost was gone) Still no luck with fruit setting. End of May came with no fruit sticking. Half way through June I decided to get some Jobes citrus spikes. It’s like magic! Bam! I’m loaded with key limes and they’re getting bigger by the day. It is hush now getting two more flowers too. Crazy what the correct nutrients can do for these great little trees. They do love lots of sun. Southern exposure seems to work best in Pa.

Excellent product
These guys do a great job. The plant was impressively packaged and very healthy. Still wating on limes to come in, but it's doing well and very excited to see it grow. Would purchase again from these guys!

Lime Time!
I actually purchased this as a gift for a dear friend who moved from WI to CO; I just got pictures last week, and she's very excited to see strong growth & hoping for a bumper crop from the plant this season.
The tree & kit are FANTASTIC! I ordered Limes & Lemons for Mom's patio this year & I'll need Christmas in July this year to get all the items on MY wish list!

Slow growing, but attractive and easy to care for
This plant grows rather slowly, and after two years I still haven't seen any limes, but it appears healthy and has a lot of attractive, dark green leaves. It doesn't require a whole lot of water or care, and is a lovely addition to my living room

Healthy plant but no fruit yet
Impatient for limes but it's only been a year. Leaves are green and the plant is filling out well.
