This is the Tahiti Lime (Citrus latifolia) also known as the Persian or Bears lime and is the common variety we have in drinks. Most people are not aware that limes do in fact go yellow when they are fully ripe, but they still have that wonderful lime flavour, just slightly sweeter and even juicier. As with all citrus you really can't beat the taste of a fresh lime from the tree.
Current Description
A little shorter than we sometimes send them, what these trees lack in height they make up with for with several good size ripening fruits. A lovely gift for a lime lover, these strong 6 year old trees will continue to put on more growth over the summer months and we expect the first tasty fruits to be ready around Christmas. To encourage as many fruit as possible to grow, a top tip is to increase the humidity around the plant and either a pebble tray or regular misting will do the trick. You are welcome to pre-order and reserve one of these popular trees from the new batch or if you need a gift straightaway we do have some nice smaller limes and lots of other citrus trees.

Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

This little tree has both tasty fruit and fragrant flowers. It can bring pleasure for months, or even years, with the right care.

Citrus trees need light and like to be near a window, skylight, or patio door. In summer your lime tree will enjoy a sheltered patio but needs to come inside as soon as there is a nip in the evening air. Try to keep your plant away from cold draughts and radiators.

While plants are in a pot they will need regular watering. Remove the pot from inside its basket or container. Water thoroughly from the top until the excess water drains right through the pot and out the bottom. This will ensure all the roots get the water they need. In the winter you might expect to water thoroughly every 10-14 days, in the summer months you may need to water up to 4 times a week but be guided by how dry the soil feels on top. Small pots do not hold much water so need to be watered more often. Do not stand your plant in water. If the leaves start to droop or curl you know it is thirsty, so water straight away.

Citrus trees are best kept in relatively small pots to control the watering in winter but to encourage your plant to grow you can repot each spring in a good quality container or ericaceous compost. As a general rule, fruit buds start to appear in early May and develop slowly into large and juicy limes great for cooking or sliced in cold drinks. Citrus trees will need a regular summer and winter feed to keep them healthy and fruiting long term.

Problem Solving

The most common problem is leaves dropping due to over or under watering. If the leaves turn crisp before they drop it is likely to be underwatering. If, however they are soft and go a dark grey brown colour before dropping you plant may need less water and/or a less damp spot. A return to regular watering routine should help your plant recover but it severe cases it may be necessary to cut off any dead growth and be patient while it recovers.

Our lime trees are grown in a pesticide free environment. In the unlikely event that you find pests e.g. aphids, these can be removed by hand or with a soap and water spray.
