Finger Lime - Jali Red (Grafted) 6/10

Tommy Ruff's Edible Fruits
Update: 1742 days 12hrs

Planted: 2015

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Spring

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Seaweed, rooster booster, osmocote citrus slow release

When I Fertilise: Spring

Question: Coming from Adelaide we experience hot dry Mediterranean summers. I know that this is an understory plant, so I've kept it in dappled sunlight and watered it regularly. However, some of the leaves have been inexplicably falling off. Will this plant, like my other citrus plants cope well in full sun (will it's grafted rootstock help it fare better in this climate)?

Lime - Kaffir 10/10

Kloe's Edible Fruits
Update: 3210 days 20hrs

Comments: - In my humble opinion, this is the best citrus tree.  Harvest the leaves and freeze or dry for the quintessential Thai curry ingredient.  Also fruits (although mine too young yet).  This one just had some leaves burnt in the heat wave, but the tree still going strong.  Mulch well.

4kg of fruit per year is awesome. Is the reason it stays on the tree because it is resilliant and your other varieties fall off?
