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.

Packed with delicious, deep green fruit, this high quality tree will yield baskets of incredible limes either in your garden, potted on your deck or patio—even in your favorite room inside your home. All it takes is a sunny spot in just about any location and get ready to enjoy the unmatched flavor that only the Key Lime can deliver. Want the best of both worlds? Place your Key Lime tree in a decorative container and bring it indoors when the weather turns cold. There’s no better way to enjoy its natural, tropical aroma. Set it in your favorite room and you’ll have authentic Key Limes within arm’s reach and a short walk to the kitchen where you can bake unforgettable, homemade Key Lime Pies.

Just a few reasons you should “Go Green” with Key Lime

• It’s small size makes it portable and versatile enough to plant and grow fruit just about anywhere
• Not only looks great but the lovely flowers will deliver a wonderful scent that will freshen your home during winter months. It’s a natural air freshener that will last the whole season through!
• You’ll enjoy a high yield of fresh, juicy fruit dripping with the tart flavor only authentic Key Limes can deliver.
• Naturally resistant to pests and diseases so you can grow your Key Limes organically.
• A hardy tree that adapts to most soils and is virtually maintenance and trouble free

Flowers, Fruit and Fragrance—A Winning Combination

Soon after you plant your Key Lime tree, small, white flowers will begin to emerge. The delicate and aromatic blooms will give way to clusters of lime-green fruit that will you’re your tree. The more sun your Key Lime tree soaks up, the healthier the crop you can expect, typically as much as 50 pounds or more of Key Limes every year. It’s like brining a slice of the Florida Keys right into your own yard. Why not make this rare tropical treasure part of your garden design?

One Taste Says it All

When it comes to taste, the Key Lime is unlike any other lime in the world. Native to the tiny string of islands off the southern tip of eastern Florida, the Key Lime offers a refreshing blend of tartness and sweetness that is all its own. It’s unique and incredibly fresh flavor lends itself well to cooking a diversity of culinary specialties including Coconut Crusted Mahi with Key Lime juice, Grilled Salmon with Key Lime Butter and other savory dishes only limited by your imagination. Follow that with homemade Key Lime Pie to sample the perfect blend of sweetness and tanginess like no other dessert on earth. Key Limes are also a great way to spruce up traditional cocktails and for making homemade Key Lime Barbeque sauce. With Key Limes, the possibilities are endless.

A Lime for all Seasons

As if the Key Lime tree didn’t have enough great attributes, here’s one more: they are self-pollinating and will reliably bear tons of fruit season after season. If you’re growing your tree indoors, the pollination process will require an additional step: removing one flower and gently wiping it over the others. That’s it! When the fruit starts to grow you’ll notice a steady production run that peaks when summer begins and fall ends. After about 4 months, your lime’s flavor will be prime for picking. A pale green color is usually your key that they’re ready to enjoy. You can even store them in plastic containers in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Grow Organic Limes

Naturally resistant to pests and diseases that most other citrus plants struggle with, our Key Lime trees make excellent additions to any organic garden, making them the perfect fit for the most discerning organic gardener. Just use a quality organic soil with the recommended fertilizer mixture to grow great tasting, healthy fruit the whole family will enjoy.

Don’t Delay—Plant your Key Lime Tree Today

If your planting area is thawed and provides sufficient sunlight, you can plant your Key Lime Tree year round. Even if the ground is frozen get things started in a container indoors then move the tree outside once the ground is ready for planting.

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.

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.

Received my lime tree about 2 months ago.
It is doing wonderfully. I moved it inside three weeks ago and put a grow light over it and it is blooming and growing. Very nice plant. I am happy I bought this little tree.


By: Kelsey Gooden
I just received my key lime tree. I ordered this tree as a valentines gift for someone and was expecting to receive a twig (as all reviews for other websites say they received). I have never been so pleasantly surprised!! The tree shipped very quickly (within a week) and is almost five feet tall!!! It already has fruit blossoms on it!!! Great great purchase! I hope everyone chooses to order their trees from this site. I truly am shocked by how great this tree looks! Best bang for your buck out there.

By: Jim b.
I planted the tree in a huge pot because I have to put it in my greenhouse during the winder. The tree has put out new growth and appears to have adapted quite well to the pot .

I water it once or twice a week and use a fertilizer for citrus plants on it. Also, I use a water soluble fertilizer for acid loving plants (citrus plants love an acid soil) on it once a month.

Growing nicely, blooming and producing a lot of limes.

By: Chris
Tree came almost fully grown, kept it inside in the winter with 8 hours of sun and it's outside now. Doesn't like too much water but very heat resistant with the summer we've had. Few fruits growing but I didn't fertilize as much as I should've this spring. Overall good buy

By: Cheri Walter
big, healthy tree. Would appreciate pruning and fertilizing tips, as I am new to this type of tree. Anticipate decent yield next year (if I can over-winter it successfully indoors).

By: Heidi Z
My lime tree, bloomed beautifully and smelled awesome.... then died. I have no idea what went wrong. I was in the desert and couldn't find my order number so I couldn't get a replacement tree. I was very sad about the whole thing.

By: Mary Lynn Bernhard
LOVE this tree. When it came by fedex, I couldn't wait to plant it. It was about 1.5 ft tall. Since planting in a large pot, it has doubled in size in about a months time. I can't wait for the limes to come.

By: Daniel H. Garrett
tree doing well in a large pot on the patio. Growing vigorously though no limes yet!

By: Glenda
I bought a key lime tree about a month ago. I went to Home Depot and got the best soil they have, the tree is doing great it has new leaves growing and I see tiny little flowers growing that means I will be having limes soon!! This tree is about 3-4 ft. Now when my son saw my lime tree he wanted one so I order another Key Lime tree and a Clementine tree. I receive the 2 other trees about 2 weeks ago. The Key Lime tree came with lots of tiny little white flowers the tree is doing great now this tree is about 4-5 ft. The Clementine tree is about 3 ft tall and is doing great I started to see little flower growing out this little tree. I'm glad I ordered from this website. I highly recommend the Fast-growing-tree. I guess if you buy the best soil they really grow fast and bloom I hope to see limes and clementine soon. Fast growing that is exactly what the trees do when they arrived to your home, just so you all know is february and they are doing great here in NY

By: Ross
I bought the 4-6 foot lime tree back in April. I planted it in a container and put it on my back porch. It has really thrived this year and I will be picking limes off it in the first season. I am really impressed with this tree and I recommend this company to my friends and neighbors.

By: Tim Sanders
I bought one of these a year ago.It was a prompt replacement for a lemon tree that I received severely damaged during shipping. It was touch and go for awhile but this summer the patio tree has flourished and is abundant in strong limbs and large leaves. Transplanting is critical for these trees. Follow the instructions to the letter. Do Not deviate. I am looking forward to blooms this fall and maybe a lime or two. Thanks for excellent service.

By: Andy
Well the review for the Key Lime is similar to the Moro Orange I bought. In both cases I ordered a 3 - 4 foot tree. The tree arrived healthy and 54" (4 1/2 ft) from soil line to highest lead. The tree is planted in a 10 gallon plastic pot in rich 'manufactured' soil like you use in garden beds. I was expecting sandy Florida type soil like you find in Orlando for some reason. I like eating limes and lemons like oranges and grapefruits, off the tree, so I hope it has a lot of fruit. The top isn't as 'bushy' as I had hoped but I imagine they prune them like this to grow them taller and also for shipping purposes. The trunk itself is about 3/4" in diameter, straight, and sturdy.

I plan to buy from Fast-Growing Trees a clementine, ruby red grapefruit (I'd buy the yellow grapefruit if they had them), a Meyer Lemon, and a Calamondin Orange.

We received our key lime tree last week. It arrived in excellent condition. It is bigger than we expected and has lots of new growth coming on and even a flower is starting to bud. We live in VA and are looking forward to lots of limes!

By: Sarah Mann
I ordered a lime tree for my fiance. I was nervous because I have had very bad luck ordering plants online in the past. He received a beautiful tree that was around 4 feet tall and was very full. The customer service of this company is wonderful. You cannot go wrong ordering your citrus trees from here! ( I ordered 2 more citrus trees for him for a late valentines and I cannot wait for him to get them! :-) )

By: Cindy
Our key lime tree is green & flowering, however we've not had any limes yet.
I am eagerly waiting.


By: John Berik
I have four fruit trees from FGT; the key lime is one of the least successful. The tree is beautiful but I have had it for over one year and the tree has its first and only lime.
