*Mexican Key Lime
*(image is for illustrative purposes only, actual tree may look different)
Ah yes...the humble Mexican lime has as many uses as it does its many names. You might know them as "Key limes", "Bartender’s limes", and even the "West Indian lime". We're still not sure how the name went from Mexico to the West Indies...but no matter, they are still the "key" ingredient in everyone's favorite Key Lime Pie!
Helpful information: Mexican lime trees are sensitive to cold. The blossoms are pure white and fragrant. The fruits are small, approximately one and one-half inches in diameter, and almost round, with a thin, smooth, greenish-yellow rind at maturity that is especially fragrant.
PLEASE READ PRIOR TO ORDERING: To allow for a shorter amount of time that your tree will be under the "stress of shipping", these young trees are shipped directly from our supplier to you. As soon as your tree is shipped, you will receive a tracking number in order to track your tree.
Also...when prepared for shipping, the soil is removed from the tree’s roots and they are carefully packed with moist wood shavings in a plastic bag. So, bare-rooted citrus trees should be planted in a 12-14” container, or in the ground and watered upon arrival.
And finally...due to USDA restrictions, citrus trees cannot be shipped to: Arizona, Texas and Florida.
