Key Lime Tree

Enjoy a lifetime of Limes!


Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Yes... Your Key Lime Tree can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Key Lime Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Key Lime Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Key Lime Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Key Lime Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

is this key lime tree non-gmo? does this lime tree like being in the ground as opposed to being in a pot?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
Best Answer: These trees are normal lime trees which will grow to full size if planted in the ground. They may grow to a height of 10-12 feet and comparable girth. They'll need LOTS of water.

Wiill a lime tree take freezing weather?Will a lime tree grow outside in dothan al?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2014
Best Answer: I live in New England and I bring my trees inside during the winter and colder weather. I have lime, grapefruit and lemon trees. They do well inside by a large bay window. I put them outside in early spring this year but we have had a very cold spring. Sadly, some of the branches on my trees turned brown. The trees are still alive but they don't look as healthy. Bottom line, I would not plant them in the ground if you have cold seasons. They definitely thrive outdoors in warmer weather. I have done this for a couple of seasons.

I recently received and planted my new key lime tree in a pot, and placed it outside since it is late spring. When I received it, you could tell it had many blooms and teeny tiny limes. Will these limes continue to grow, or can I only expect limes from the new flowers since I've planted it? And if they won't grow, should I snip them off or just leave them alone?
Jessica P on Jun 12, 2014
Best Answer: My tree was the same way. The limes grew, but I had a problem with diseased leaves whenI had it in the pot. I treated by spraying and move it. Once I moved it, it was too late to save those limes. I hope this year will be better but so far have not had any blooms. It took my lemon tree three years to produce lemons, that but tree does not have blooms this year either. We had a harsh winter, and I keep mine in a protected area outside. I guess my advice is leave it alone and see.

how tall will this plant grow?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2014
Best Answer: I keep mine pruned down to about 5ft. tall. I have to move mine inside since it is to cold where I live so I don't want it to big

how tolerant to hot weather?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2014
Best Answer: Hi! Key Lime trees love hot weather, just remember to keep watered. If in a pot remember the heat will dry out the soil quickly and you might have to water daily depending on the size of your pot. Never water tree in direct or mid day sun!!!

why do these trees not ship to tx?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2014
Best Answer: It is likely because Texas like Califoria has a citrus industry of its own and wants to protect it from any posible investations from outside plants.
