Customer Tips & Reviews Lime - West Indian Seedling
Lime - West Indian Seedling
I planted a West Indian Lime around 6 years ago in a warm sunny position in my garden - it must like the position as it fruits prolifically. Beware the spikes!
BRAY PARK, QLD, Australia
Taste is tangy and smaller than tahitian. First couple of years it focused on establishing itself (bushiness) then by 4th year height has taken effect and getting only a small amount of crop and flowering. There are thorns. Espaliered, but not as easy ...
Patio Lime that seems to be growing vigorously however I didn't see many flowers this year and it didn't set any fruit. Has had some problems with aphids, leaf miner and mineral difficiency. I think I've solved them by using occassional eco oil sprays ...
North Lakes, QLD
Nearly always has fruit - lived in a pot for the first 2 years after I bought it.
Too many seeds in fruit, but mum has tahitian so I wanted a different one.
