 ℹ Indulge in our Thornless Patio Key Lime Tree, fast gaining popularity as a fuss free patio citrus tree easily grown in a pot and moved indoors for winter! The thornless key lime tree produces small, round fruits prized for their vibrant green hue and intense citrus flavor. Known for their exceptional juiciness and distinctive aroma, key limes add a refreshing zest to any dish or beverage. Unlike common limes, key limes offer a stronger, more floral taste, striking a perfect balance between sweetness and tartness. This unique flavor profile makes them a favorite among chefs and home cooks alike. The thornless variety of the tree simplifies harvesting, ensuring convenient access to these delicious fruits. To successfully cultivate this botanical rarity in Canada, they are easily grown in pots, which are moved indoors before frost and placed outdoors during the growing season on a sun drenched patio, balcony or deck. Adequate sunlight, well draining soil, and proper fertilization will ensure you get to reap a continued successful harvest. Harvesting time for Key Limes is fairly flexible. Limes harvested early will have a higher acid content compared to Limes that are allowed to ripen longer on the tree. The vibrant green color combined with a nice weight, shiny skin and fragrant lime smell of the fruit is the best indicator for harvest. With 2 main flushes of blooms in spring and fall as well as varying ripening times for each fruit this tree typically produces fruit year round, with peak fruiting occurring during the warmer months, allowing staggered picking through out the year. Note: the exact fruiting pattern may vary based on growing conditions and care.
