These mature tahiti lime trees already have the first one or two green fruit developing.
This is the best lime variety to grow in the UK producing tasty traditional limes for drinks and cooking.
Like all our citrus trees these limes are grafted trees, bred to fruit whilst young and stay a manageable size. They generally flower in the spring developing young fruits over the summer ready for a Christmas harvest.
Limes tend to be imported as green fruits but if allowed they will ripen on the tree to a sweeter yellow, all the better for drinks and cocktails. Great gifts for citrus fans or gardeners.
Presented in an attractive personalised metal pail. These strong lime trees will make a great feature in a bright room or on a sunny patio. You can add any phrase, names, dates or best wishes on to the metal pail making these trees a perfect gift for Weddings, Anniversaries, special Birthdays or to celebrate a new baby.
This is the "Tahiti Lime" - Citrus latifolia - which produces tasty fruits for drinks and cooking. In the winter keep them in a cool, light place indoors to protect the roots from frost, but in the summer they can go out on the patio, or in a conservatory, or by a big window.
Citrus trees like plenty of sunshine and are best kept above about 5C on a sunny windowsil or conservatory although they will love a patio in the summer. All our plants come with care instructions and our special plant tonic to make sure you get the most from your lime tree for many years to come.
