Dwarf Lime - Tahitian (Grafted) 10/10

Kate816's Edible Fruits
Update: 507 days 18hrs

Comments: -

Going great, has lowanna strawberries growing around the base with some french marigolds and a french lavender as well. Doesn't seem to mind, in fact they may be acting like mulch perhaps.

Al lthe fruit dropped this time, but that's to be expected with a brand new young lime tree. It was also suffering black aphids for a day or two before I noticed, but some white oil sorted them out very swiftly and then ladybirds came and helped as well.

Very healthy, happy young tree.

Dwarf Lime - Tahitian (Grafted)

1010501's Edible Fruits
Update: 1036 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Plant arrived in Feb 2020 in great condition with soil still damp. Will plant this into a pot after 1-2 weeks outside and provide updates.

May 2020 - Has had one flush of growth since potting - new growth was damaged by citrus leafminer. 

Spring 2020 - Flowered set one fruit (which dropped).

September 2021 - Now in 25L pot. Flush of new growth & flowers now (will knock these off), however has been slow growing - likely due to allowing to fruit last year and growing in a pot. Survived 2x Toowoomba winters with no damage (under shade cloth so frost couldn't settle).

Planted November 2015. So too young to make any review as yet. 

It's currently in full sun. I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in a 75 litre planter bag with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then kind of equal amounts of good quality potty mix, coir peat, perlite and a shovel of organic pellets mixed through. A really good layer of small pine bark on top.

Dwarf Lime - Tahitian (Grafted) 8/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2215 days 9hrs

Comments: -

I recieved my Tahitian Lime and my Lots-of-Lemons as Christmas gifts in 2014. And wow, these things have been put through the ringer.

Any pest capable of getting something from a citrus, has attacked my babies. ARGH!

This was repotted into a large 70 L tub, with Osmocote citrus soil, cheapy bunnings compost, coir soaked in seasol and mollasses, chook manure, dynamic lifter pellets, and some lime. I think I threw in some blood and bone as well. Plant did well in the mix, and bushed out quickly, and set dozens of flowers in the first month.

Which the possums quickly ate. I mean it. Any time I get flowers, they eat the lot. Any that last long enough to turn into itty bitty fruit either get eaten, or knocked off in the possum's haste to eat all the flowers. I have tried covering with netting and weighting it down with bricks, and they shove the bricks away, and climb under!! So far, in two years, I have not had a single fruit. They also eat all the Lemonade flowers, as well as capsicum flowers, and all my strawberries. Dagnabbit.

Since then, I have had citrus miner, citrus gall wasp, giant brown caterpillars, citrus swallowtail butterfly catterpillars, fruit fly, aphids, you name it, they love it. The poor thing has hung on, and I am about to give it a bit of a hair cut, and move it to a better spot, since it is far enough around the back yard that it gets little attention. I think a season of being centre placed for me to baby it will do it good.

I remove most bugs by hand, so this one has never had sprays. I fertilise every other month with dynamic lifter pellets under the sugar cane mulch, and a good dose of seasol when I remember. It also seems to do well with some of the 'black marvel' rose fertiliser every once in a while. I plan to underplant with a few different herbs before spring to try and keep the bug population down, so we shall see how that goes. And yellow sticky cards, to trap any returning gall wasps I have missed!

I am attempting chicken wire cages to deter possums. Here's hoping for fruit Summer 2016!!!

This Mexican Lime tree was always struggling and it didn't survive the drought. I wonder if it wasn't warm enough in winter here even though I planted it next to a stone wall to try and give it more warmth.

Where can we get Key Limes from?
zeni says... [5087 days 13hrs ago]
I got the Mexican Lime from Turner's Nursery at Rochedale 2-3 years ago. They're hard to find - I'd been keeping my eye out for one for several years.
