Citrus x latifolia, Persian Lime, Bearss Lime, Tahiti Lime, Patio Fruit Tree
The Tahiti Lime makes a stunning patio feature and produces bright green, zesty fruits throughout the year. Set against a foil of glossy, dark foliage, the delicate clusters of tiny white flowers fill the air with their delicious fragrance. The fruits that follow may take up to a year to ripen but are well worth the wait. The lovely seedless limes are produced in abundance and if left on the tree will eventually turn yellow. Once harvested, Limes will keep for up to 2 weeks.
Lime trees are capable of surviving brief periods below 0C, but are best grown in large containers and moved indoors to a bright frost free position from autumn to spring. This tree is self fertile and will not need a pollination companion. Propagated onto 'PS' rootstock and supplied as a large specimen bush (often in fruit) in a 5 litre pot. Height: 250cm (78"). Spread: 150cm (59").
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
