Famous for its petite, round fruits with a tangy flavor, this citrus gem has become a cherished addition to gardens worldwide.

Growing Citrus aurantifolia also provides the satisfaction of harvesting fresh, home-grown limes for culinary delights and refreshing beverages.

Type of Plant: Citrus aurantifolia is ideally suited for outdoor cultivation in regions with a warm and tropical climate. However, it can be grown in containers and brought indoors in colder climates, provided it receives sufficient sunlight.

Care: Optimal care for your Key Lime tree involves considerations to ensure its health and prolific fruiting. Plant it in well-draining soil and provide regular watering, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between sessions. Citrus plants thrive in full sunlight, so ensure they receive at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily. Pruning can be done to shape the tree and encourage air circulation. Additionally, fertilize during the growing season to support robust growth and fruit development.
