Hi Sean, I have a Tahitian lime as well in a pot. How do you prune the roots?
Sean1 says... [2215 days 4hrs 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

Chilli - Rocoto Tree (Seedling) 10/10

Sean1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2098 days 10hrs

Comments: -

It's great to have a chilli that will last longer than 1 season. Tried a green one & it tasted a bit like petrol! Waited for a fully ripe one & it was really good. Not too hot  but great flavour & slightly sweet aftertaste - like a hot capsicum. Fantastic chilli as it doesn't overpower other flavours in your cooking. Very happy with this plant & it's extremely productive.

Naranjilla (Seedling) 10/10

Sean1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2131 days 8hrs

Comments: -

Bought this in August 2011in a 140mm pot , it was about 200mm high. Now (early Nov2011) it is about 900mm high & very attractive. In a pot in azalea mix, doing very well thanks to all the tips from Daleys customers.(shaded spot) I'll probably get another one to increase pollination but even if it doesn't fruit it's a striking looking plant. Surprised it isn't grown just as a feature plant. Very happy.

Lots of flowers over summer but no fruit, has sent up 2 suckers

Update: 2131 days 8hrs

Arrived from Daleys looking great (Aug 2011) but Sydney was a bit cold & it lost some of that Kyogle growth! I took it out of the bonsai bag & tranplanted it to a warm black pot - that plus spring weather has seen it re establish & looks good. Has had protection from hot arvo sun over summer & has grown better in this position

Hi. My okitsu wase has fruited this year. The fruit is very large and juicy, easy to peel, but unfortunately it is not sweet. Rather disappointing.
