Key Lime

Key Lime

The juice of Key Lime (Citrus aurantiifolia) gives a sparkling tang to pies as well as Mediterranean, Mexican, and Asian recipes (it will also spruce up any drink from ice-cold water to something stiffer). Although many people associate the Key Lime with Key West, Florida, it is native to Malaysia and is now grown all over the world in warm climates. The tree is fairly vigorous, somewhat bushy in habit, and has sharp thorns on its branches. The fruit is small and round, with a very thin, smooth rind that turns from dark green to greenish yellow or yellow when ripe. The flesh is also light greenish yellow and very juicy. Key Lime pie that looks green, not yellow, has been artificially colored. Mature plants produce fruit in August and September.

Our high-quality Citrus plants make it possible for gardeners and cooks in all regions of the country to grow these specialty Citrus trees outdoors on the deck or patio during the summer and indoors over the winter. Gardeners in Zone 10 can expect them to reach 6-10' tall when planted in the ground. Elsewhere in the country, citrus should be grown in containers and will stay smaller, eventually reaching 4-5'. In cold climates, containers may be moved outside during summer to a sunny spot protected from the wind, then brought back indoors before frost. Shipped in a 1 gal pot.
