Now you can have the fresh, sweet scent of the Florida Keys right in your own garden with our Key Lime Tree. 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 cover 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

Now that you all the benefits that Key Lime trees have to offer, why put off until tomorrow what you can plant 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.





Key Lime Tree Pollination

Key Lime Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Key Lime Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Key Lime Tree


Key Lime Tree Planting Diretions Plant your Key Lime Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Key Lime Trees prefer full sun, they can tolerate shade. If planted indoors place your Key Lime Tree by a large sunny window.

Key Lime Trees prefer acidic soil but will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Water your Key Lime Tree twice a week, and be sure that the soil doesn't get over saturated. Apply a citrus fertilize to your tree four times a year.

Flowers will be on your tree year around but a higher concentration of flowers appears in the Spring. Once the flowers are pollinated and limes start to grow it takes about four months for them to mature. Key Limes only ripen on the tree. Don't pick them until they turn a light yellow green color, this is when they're the sweetest and juiciest.
