Citrus aurantifolia 'Tahitian Lime'

Foliage Evergreen
Form Round
Mature Size 3 x 3m
Family Rutaceae
Ctirus aurantifolia is the most popular Lime grown in cool climates. It produces dark green, round, seedless fruit with a thin skin throughout the year. Fruit production is at its peak in late autumn to early winter in cooler climates. It is fragrant and juicy and ideal for use in the kitchen. Tahitian Limes are an attractive, small spreading evergreen tree with dark green, glossy leaves and like many citrus trees they have small spines along the stems. They bear beautiful creamy white flowers with a strong fragrance.

Lime trees make excellent specimen trees in mediterranean gardens. Can be placed in garden beds or containers and pots.

Tahitian Limes are hungry feeders and prefer a well drained soil with lots of organic matter. Fertilise in spring and Autumn and water regularly in the hotter months. Keep the area beneath your trees free of grass and weeds. Mulch with compost or other organic material, but make sure that the mulch does not touch the trunk of the tree.
