Citrus latifolia Lime 'Tahitian'
Glossy dark green foliage, green rounded fruit that ripen to yellow, white perfumed flowers in Summer.
Performs best in a warm full sun position and is happy in most soil types as long as it has good drainage. Limes can be attacked by citrus scale and leaf miner, use appropriate treatment if detected. Prevent insect attack by growing in ideal conditions. Fertilise in spring and late summer with high nitrogen fertiliser.
Limes produce lots of medium sized fruit; very juicy and seedless. Ideal for cooking and for refreshing drinks. Harvest while still green. Limes make fantastic container plants.
