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.

Slowly slowly has been this little dwarf lime, I am finally going to have some fruit to pick this year 2014, even if they are small because of the dry. I wish I had bought a tree on trifoliata as the dwarf is too slow.
Pollination: Self Pollination
get spray occasionally with pest oil, I need to give this tree more attention
