Lime - Tahitian 400mm Pot (Advanced)

Tahitian Lime

Description of plant at maturity:
Popularity: The Tahitian is one of the most popular Limes in SA. The fruit has great flavour and colour.

Fruit: Medium sized fruit with mid green, smooth skin and pale green flesh. Very juicy & full flavoured. It is best to pick the fruit whilst green otherwise it can develop rot if left to turn yellow on the tree.

Tree: A small to medium sized citrus tree with thorns.

Main Harvest: Tahitian will produce its main crop in Winter, but will fruit throughout the year.

The Tahitian lime is the best lime for juicing, and is also well suited for cooking.

Care: Water during the warmer months, especially when fruits are forming. In containers water every three to four days, more often in hot weather. Do not water the trunk. Fertilise in Spring and late Summer - early Autumn with a fertilizer high in nitrogen but do not allow to touch the trunk. Prune in late Spring, removing inside weak growth and to shape the tree.

Planting: Add organic matter to the soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from the container and place in the hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly, and water in well, even if the soil is moist. If planting in a container, use a premium potting mix. The container should be a minimum size of 60cm x 60cm.

Watering: Moderate water requirement.

Position: Plant in a sunny position with well drained soil and sheltered from strong winds.

Height: 4m
