 Unfortunately the last few of this line got damaged in transport to a market and have been repotted into 10 cm pots so not ready for sale

I can get plants in 3l pots at $14 each not sure if cutting grown or grafted

Also plants in planter bags grafted on trifoliate rootstock should fruit in 2 -3 years at $18

 

Bears is hardier selection of Tahitian lime although will need protection from frost

It has small, thin skinned, deep green seedless fruit which turns lime yellow at maturity. The fruit can be used in drinks or cooking

Tree habit is spreading and vigorous.  It can reach 4.5 m if left untrimmedLike all citruss shallow rooted so limu=it cultivation round them and feed in Spring and late summer
