Persian Lime trees are best known for their dense, glossy evergreen foliage, and small buds that produce pure white, fragrant blossoms. Persian limes are those most often found in grocery stores. Abundant, large limes grow at the ends of the branches of the trees and need little heat to ripen. The thin, smooth green rind and seedless, juicy flesh make it ideal for cooking, zesting, and garnishing. It produces abundant fruit when grown both indoors and outdoors.

Growing Instructions: Persian Lime trees are great indoor and outdoor patio plants. For best results, within 4-6 weeks of receiving your tree, transplant it into a larger pot that drains well and is approximately 8-12″ in diameter to give the roots room to grow. In the spring move your potted tree outdoors into full sun when the threat of frost is past. Bring it back indoors in the fall before the frost season begins. Fertilize regularly with high nitrogen formula, 5-3-3 ratio. Water thoroughly while letting the surface soil dry between watering. Do not overwater. Prune by pinching back the tips of new growth toward the interior branches. Remove any new growth or stems near the soil.
