Finger Lime time to fruit

    4 responses

GlennA starts with ...
Hi,

I was wondering if someone could tell me how long a finger lime takes to fruit? Will it fruit in the first year, and if so is it best to remove the fruit in the first year to promote growth?

Cheers,

Seedling, grafted or cutting? Seedlings can take years, grafted within a couple of years, I've had cuttings flower and fruit within weeks of the cuttings striking. I sent one struck cutting to a friend up north that was 3 inches tall with two fruit attached.

Thanks John, I'd be buying them from Daleys, which I believe are seedlings?

No, without checking, I'd say Daley's would be selling grafted specimens, at the least, cuttings. Seedlings take too long to fruit.

John is correct, all the daleys finger limes are grafted onto tri, unless otherwise specified.
