Customer Comments on Lime Tree
Tahitian grows, crops and ripens well and stays on tree virtually all year. West Indian survives but does not fruit in our area | Anthony Miceli - Mornington, VIC 20-Feb-2006
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. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 03-Jun-2006
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. | G Paterson - Greenwich, NSW 29-May-2009
