Mexican Lime tree aka West Indian lime tree or Key lime tree, also known as the 'bartender's lime due to it's use in beverages. You can soon be on your way to harvesting your own limes in your backyard and putting them in your drinks!

Technical Specs for Your Tree:

This tree is grafted, using proprietary micro-budding technology. It is not grown from cuttings or from a seed

Rootstock: Brazilian Sour Orange or Citrange-22

non-GMO, not organically raised

Height: 12-inches tall or greater (not including root system)

Stem Diameter: 4mm or greater

Age: ~6 months in age or older

Pot size: 2.5 quarts plastic pot (which is referred to as 1-gallon in standard nursery nomenclature)

Start of fruit production: after one year of consistent growth

Consistent fruit harvests: after two years of consistent growth

Container: Your tree can stay in the pot it comes in for one year. Re-potting can be done at any time, we suggest 5-gallon to 15-gallon pot sizes with drainage holes

Watering: A newly shipped tree needs its soil drenched daily for 4 weeks. Overwatering is not a concern if the container has drainage holes and the tree is outdoors.

Indoor growing: watering needs to be adjusted, more info in our care guide.

Climate Control: Needs to be protected from strong winds or temperatures under 40 degrees F.

Light: We recommend the tree be kept outdoors for full sunlight. If is kept indoors, we recommend a full-spectrum grow light, window light will not suffice as this is a tropical tree. If the tree is kept indoors without a full spectrum grow light, we cannot say with confidence that the tree will survive or thrive.

Nutrition: To thrive, your tree needs proper fertilizer three times yearly.

Your tree can spend its life in a pot. We do NOT recommend planting the tree in the ground if there are any freezing temperatures unless you live in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 9a, 9b or 10a. Even then your tree must be protected from temperatures below freezing.

Nursery: TDA certified nursery in Hargill, Texas. We do not purchase trees from any other nurseries to re-sell.

Great packaging

I haven’t gotten an opportunity to use it but just seeing how healthy the plants I received are, I am very confident this fertilizer will work wonders for them. I love the professionalism of the packaging. Everything was packaged so well that there was no damage to any of the plants or fertilizer. Thank you so much.

Happy customer.

I sent an orange tree to a south Texas gardener who lost their trees last winter. The tree arrived quick and was well liked by the recipient.
