LIME - TAHITIAN

Botanical Name: Citrus latifolia
Description

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.

Question & Answer

Dear Sir / Madam Could you please tell me the approximate height of the most mature lime (Tahitian ok) and Eureka lemon trees that you have currently available, and also what size box I would need if I purchased one of each tree (I assume medium)? Thank you Simon From: LEICHHARDT NSW

The size of our Tahitian Lime and Eureka lemons are approximately 1 mtr. They are in 4ltr bags and to fit them into our mail order cartons they are pruned to 90cm high. To calculate the freight add both of them to your shopping cart and enter your postcode. Freight will be automatically calculated. #LimeTahitian764 #LemonEureka754

Hi Sean, I have a Tahitian lime as well in a pot. How do you prune the roots?
Sean1 says... [2211 days 1hrs ago]
hi Chak, sorry for late reply. I just took the whole tree out of the pot & trimmed the roots with a sharp knife & as Daleys advised pruned the foliage at the same rate. Then I put new in potting mix & dynamic lifter, repotted & gave some seasol weekly til it got over the shock. Very easy & responded well. Hope this helps

September 2009:  Lots more flowers observed.  Applied sulphate of potash and watered in.  Introduced fly trap.

October 2009:  Some growth activity recorded.

November 2009:  More growth recorded.  Some fruit observed.

I took this from a cramped space in my dad's new house and transplanted into a pot as a 1.2m tree in winter 2009. Repotted in large pot Dec22 09. Growth flush by January. Ants moved in by Jan 15, I added coffee grounds and numerous soakings to try move them on. Canopy was not looking happy in winter, but strong spring flush. Tip pruned for shape and removal of weaker limbs leaving some early flowers.

Lime - Tahitian

BJ11_old_address's Edible Fruits
Update: 2021 days 17hrs

Comments: -

I'm not really sure where this came from (it traveled between rental properties as a friend's mascot), or even if it is a tahitian lime! Unfortunately it never set fruit prior to 2010 and I've not yet had a fruit reach picking stage. This could be because it has been dug up and re-planted roughly every 6 months until now. I've piled about 100 litres of sheep poo around it - I'm hoping this will leach into the soil and improve things a bit ... there are some flower buds so maybe the poo is doing the trick!

This plant suffered badly summer with only a small amount of watering - many of the branches were burnt off. I've sinced discovered that WA citrus need approximately 6 litres of water per day per square metre of canopy and the orange has responded very well to an almost 7-fold increase in water! There are now many new shoots. I've also errected a screen of cardboard boxes around the plant to provide additional shade. Ugly - but it is working.

Hopefully next summer the Jujube will provide some additional shade!

Plant was 'transplanted' in June 2011. I dug the plant up, removed the pale WA sand and replaced with a better quality soil, and re-planted the tree. It seems to have coped with the ordeal OK.

Jan 2012 - it is hard to imagine this is the same plant that struggled last summer. A bit more food and water and it is growing like a champ and covered in fruit. No cardboard this year - just sugarcane mulch.

May 2012 - already more fruit than I can eat, thankfully friends at work are happy to consume the extra limes. Water and food clearly appreciated!

actual tahitian limes are quite hardy and don't need huge soil improvement. They will establish as long as the rootball settles in. Should be flowering now at that size

The tree was planted in a sunny but very windy spot and almost all the leaves were blown off during the Winter months. I got a bit worried but the tree has recovered and is producing lots of new leaves thanks to the recent rain.

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 were striped from the tree and so no fruits.

The tree shows strong growth and isn't affected by the cold Melbourne winter at all. They don't seem to mind growing in pots either. I had to stake mine because of the wind. 

Other than the wind destroying some of the leaves, this tree wasn't affected by any pest.

Question:

Keeps getting some sort of disease on new growth leaves. Parts of leaves turn brown and most new leaves curl and look sick. Have used pest oil and some sort of copper powder suggested by horticulturists in Flower power and someone at Bunnings. Not completely satisfied

How can I avoid it?

Best fruit tree I have, quick growing, prolific producer, great tasting limes, good looking tree

Full 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 pulled 94 limes off that were either green or green/yellow.  Thought the yellow ones would be no good but I was wrong.  I have given about 35 away, hand juiced and frozen in ice cubes trays 35 and have just over 20 for fresh use.  This does not incvlude the 50 already picked and the 100 left on there still ripening.  Oh and it has flowered again and full of more baby fruit - May 2011.

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.

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 water.  Seems happy.

Has got a lot of fruit on it now and looks very happy and strong.

Great little tree - healthy and fruiting

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.

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.

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 turkeys suck at the old fallen fruit, and all visitors leave with a bag to take home - delicious.

Favourite uses include lime butter (with own chook eggs), lime meringue pie, and jugs of lime and tonic (occasionally with Gin!).

Love all things lime !  Mainly use juice, but is nice in marmalade.

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 then kind of equal amounts of good quality potty mix, coir peat, perlite and a shovel of organic pellets mixed through. A really good layer of small pine bark on top.


Accidently purchased thinking it was a dwarf. Oh well I'll just have to ensure I keep up with the pruning :)
