Citrus x aurantiifolia - Tahitian Lime
The Tahitian Lime Tree is a medium-sized, rather showy tree that can easily be trained to produce stunning specimens that really stand out on the patio! Easy to grow and care for, they can be grown either in a container or in the ground. They make great plants for hedging, espalier training or as specimen trees.
The Tahitian Lime Tree produces lime green citrus fruits also known as Persian or Bearss limes. The tree will produce fruit in its first year after planting and fruit production will increase every year. Proper maintenance is key to supporting and encouraging plant health for a productive citrus harvest.
The Tahitian Lime Tree is considered to be the best choice of Lime due to it being more cold-tolerant than other species. It is easy to grow, generally pest and disease free, and it has larger, seedless fruits that have a less acidic flavour than the Key Lime.
The Tahitian lime tree is moderately vigorous, 2.5-3 metres, thornless, seedless, juicy and extremely acidic with widespread, drooping branches.
