This is the most popular commercial 'supermarket' lime - and rightly so. It has a good tolerance to cold (but not frost) and produces hefty crops of flavoursome limes - sometimes seeded, sometimes seedless.

Limes are traditionally eaten un-ripe when green - but if you allow them to ripen to a delicate yellow orange colour they will exhibit all the flavour without being quite so 'sharp'.

Recognised to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Self fertile.
  • Like a sunny, sheltered position.
  • Prefer free draining, slightly acidic (pH 6 - 6.5) soil.
  • Can be grown outside through the Spring and Summer months but needs frost protection.
  • Requires a minimum of 41F (5C)and ideally 50F (10C)or higher.
  • Please note that citrus plants will drop leaves with extreme changes in temperature - they usually just re-leaf.
  • Edible flowers.
  • Perfumed flowers.
  • Can be grown in pots.
  • Ensure the compost remains moist but doesn't get overly wet.
  • Never let the plant sit in water (as this will cause rot).
  • Feed the trees once a month from April until September and then every three months the rest of the year with a quality, general fertiliser.
  • Any pruning that is required is best done late Autumn when the tree is dormant.
  • A fully-grown lime tree, 11 - 15 feet(3.5 – 4.5 metres) in height can produce around 300 fruits in a year; at 6 - 8 feet (1.8 – 2.4 metres), approximately 10 years old, it should give around 60 or more fruits.
