Dwarf Lime - Tahitian

Citrus latifolia fullscreen
Fruit Trees > Citrus Trees > Lime Tree > Dwarf Lime - Tahitian
The small to medium fruit is pale lemon-yellow with smooth thin skin. The flesh is a translucent pale green, tender and juicy with a true acid lime flavour. It is best to pick the fruit green as it can suffer from rot if left to ripen on the tree.The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.
