Lime Tree

Keep the water up, full sun, no frost, lots of mulch and no grass for 4' around trunk. Best fertilizer for the tahitian apart from blood & bone is pee (diluted) in a watering can. Believe me, I have 3 of these, and sell kilos of them at a local market.

Lime - Dwarf Tahitian

No particular problems. Grow as any other citrus. Heavy fruiting if given plenty of water and fertiliser. Likes a few good doses of potash. Fruit seedless and tangy. Juice can be frozen in ice cube trays and kept in freezer for instant juice all year.

Lime

Tahitian grows, crops and ripens well and stays on tree virtually all year. West Indian survives but does not fruit in our area
