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.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.
Information on limes
Despatched through autumn and winter you may notice that some of the fruit on your lime tree is actually showing yellow or orange. Rest assured you have received a lime and not an orange or lemon tree.
All limes varieties and species will change from bright green to yellow and orange as they become more ripe.
The limes that are bought in supermarkets are picked very immature to both retain the acidity, firmness and green colour. The flavour will also change with age and the yellow/orange fruits will be significantly sweeter than those that are picked bright green. In addition, limes are usually sold as quite a small round fruit as they are far from fully grown. The ripe fruits are much larger.
Rest assured, if you wish to pick green fruits, you will be able to do so next year when the fruits are at an earlier stage of ripeness.
