Customer Tips & Reviews Lime - Tahitian
Lime - Tahitian
Loves horse poo feeds at drip line. Gets really big and responded well to a heavy prune. Copius fruit almost all year round. Responds well to regular picking. Happily growing next to feijoa.
SEAFORD MEADOWS, SA, Australia
Use these a lot in cold drinks and meringues, curries. Same as for lemon. Prune as you go. Keeps a few households in limes.
GEROGERY, NSW, Australia
Planted in same hole as a lemon. so far so good, but no flowers.

I LOVE limes, love, love, LOVE them!! The tree is doing well, very vigorous despite the ants farming mealybug like on all my citrus.
THAGOONA, QLD, Australia
Planted about July 2015 in a 50cm pot. Going well, has about 3 small fruit. It's currently in full sun. I water almost daily depending on weather. I recently repotted it into a 75 litre planter bag with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark t...
Tingalpa, QLD, Australia
Plenty of fruit, very easy to care for the only issue we have had is thrips, neem oil solved that issue though. This is growing in a 60cm pot and looks great. Even in part shade it is healthy and very productive

On deaths door. I need to learn the art of citrus growing.
QUAKERS HILL , NSW, Australia

Burnside, VIC, Australia
I saw this one avaliable for sale in Bunning. It was a resonable price for a quiet a large tree. I planted it in a 50L plastic pot with lots of manure, fertiliser and mulch. It was doing well but was disrupted by strong wind last winter. The flowers we...
Happy as a clam in the frost free climate, already shooting madly after 2 months in the middle of winter.

Bought in pot from nursery 6 years ago and was struggling. I planted in groung this year and is doing alot better. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Miranda, NSW, Australia
Has stayed manageable size in the pot. Great tasting fruit, low maintenance tree. Only pests are stink bugs which are easy to control. Pruned roots as well as branches this winter & has a flush of new growth & heaps of fruit set this spring
St Agnes, SA, AUST
juice is great with iced tea in summer months
Can't believe thia one ia actually producing limes. Planted in a sheltered north facing wall so gets plenty of warmth and water. Continues flushes of new growth throughout the year.It also gets inspected regularly for butterfly eggs on new growth, seem...

Pomona, Qld, Australia
It has a long fruiting season and gives plentifully. Very useful fruit
Growing in a pot but has struggled. I moved it to a full winter sun position and repotted and prunned and it is taking off. Not many fruit at this stage. Srping 2011 - lots of flowers this year and fruit is setting. The tree is loooking a bit spars...
Cronulla, NSW, Australia
Tastes fantastic and works a treat in my husbands beer and my vodka and soda
wilsons creek, nsw, Australia
It is our first home grown fruit that we have actually sold to the local Fruit and Veg shop! A magical tree that produces thousands of fruit - with only mulching and pruning. Wallabies chew on the tips (we have fenced the trunk to keep it safe), brush ...
The reson why I think this plant is paramount is because it is seedless and tastes sweet and sour which im sure will adapt to everyones tastebuds. Even the fussy ones.
Rangeville, QLD, Australia
Who can use this much fruit!?!?!? Great in it's big pot, needs pruning a few times a year to keep the size down though. Never any pest damage, only gets the odd dose of fish or seaweed as well as some compost top dressing now and again.
Mt Pleasant, SA, Australia
Have Tahitian and West Indian lime. Both on northern edge of shade house area, so can get winter sun but not much summer sun. Will see how they survive winter. Currently the West Indian lime is growing better than the Tahitian.
Keperra, QLD, Australia
I thought this was a dwarf plant, but the tag does not say so, so I must have picked up the wrong plant. In ground now for over 1 year, going great. Full of fruit. Just like its dwarf brother, just a bit bigger.
Mooloolaba, QLD, Australia
A young tree. May have been set back a bit as I moved it from the garden into a pot. Seems to have come back well though and has some fruit as well as a mass of flowers on it at present. Also gets quite a bit of wind and salt as is right on the w...
Wakeley, NSW, Australia
This tree is a machine. It has fruits on it all year round. Very rewarding tree.Luckily I inherited this tree from the previous owners.
North Bellingen, NSW, Australia
very abundant-we prune and cull fruit to control the weight load on the branches which tend to split when there is too much weight from the fruit left on them. The pruning sacrifices current fruit but is better for the tree in the long run.
Rathmines, NSW, Australia
Best fruit tree I have, quick growing, prolific producer, great tasting limes, good looking treeFull of flowers. Got about 120 limes last year.Oh my god this is the best fruit tree ever. No effort required and just continues to produce have just pu...
Eden Hill, WA, Australia
well established lime tree, very healthy fruiting all year round.
South Maroota, NSW, Australia
Given to me after a tough life in the previous owners pot for a number of years. Planted below the septic tank in a sheltered position with morning and midday sun. Never looked back, fruits brilliantly every year. Some problems with gall wasp.
BLACKTOWN, NSW, Australia
Healthy and vigorous fruiting tree. Have had lots of good sized juicy seedless fruit. Just beside it is a Satsuma Mandarin (Robbie Engalls variety). Both trees are doing well. Have had lots of mandarins from the mandarin tree as well.Aug...
Albany, WA, Australia
Slow growing for me. Compact healthy looking bush, but no fruit as yet.
Eaton, WA, Australia
A great lime growing up against the fence in our herb garden. Pruned reasonably heavily to keep the size down- carries fruit through much of the year
Como, NSW, Australia
The lime has been great in its pot. We water, fertalise, occasionally treat with white oil if necessary and harvest wonderful limes. As you can see in the picture, the lime, orange and hass avacado are in smallish pots.
Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia
just moved from the front garden to the side, pruned 1/3
Feeding - see lemon - meyer. Aug 2010: is recovering well from being transplanted, at last. Will be removing flowers this season though - it's not ready for fruit yet.
