• Produces giant, seedless limes with amazing flavor and fragrance. • Fruit tastes better than anything you'll find at a local gourmet market • Fills the air with a wonderful citrus scent when it blooms in spring Giant, Delicious Limes The Persian Lime Tree is what most of us picture when we think of a typical lime, though frankly the taste of this lime is not typical; it is delicious. This wonderful tree was commercially cultivated in Florida starting around 1882. For more than a century, the Persian Lime was extensively grown in that region, then in 1992 Hurricane Andrew devastated the crop. You can now re-establish this delicious lime in your own backyard! Sun Loving The Persian Lime Tree is not difficult to grow if we remember that limes love full sun and heat. At 30°F they will become damaged and below 24°F they die. We would not recommend planting them in the ground below zone 9/9b or 10. If you live in zone 8 and have a protected and sunny area, you may have luck, however, we recommend planting in a pot that can be moved indoors. Easy to Grow When planted, it must be in well-drained soil, pH neutral or slightly acidic. In planting, the hole must be at least twice the size of the root ball and the root ball should be in a mound above soil level to create better drainage. Low Maintenance The Persian Lime Tree should be watered regularly after being planted. For the very best yields, prune the mature trees to about 8 feet tall.
