The Tahitian Lime is a popular small spreading, evergreen tree with glossy leaves, some thorns, and fragrant creamy-white blossoms followed by medium sized, round green fruit with a thin skin and a juicy, almost seedless acidic flesh. The limes are ready to pick in winter before the fruit turns yellow. Use as a garnish in cocktails, for juicing, desserts or in Asian dishes. Ideal as a feature tree in a pot for courtyards or decks, or in smaller, Mediterranean style gardens. Grow in a sunny position with well-drained soil.
