my first lime

mama tree

Last year I decided to experiment with a baby, container held, lime tree.  Although Charleston's temperatures dip a bit too low for this tropical fruit; "LIMEY" is growing quite nicely and already has produced its first lime and is already in its third pot!  At this rate I may have to move "LIMEY" further south or the purchase of a tree blanket.  She's way too heavy for me to be carrying inside!

Thinking about growing a lime OR lemon tree?  I strongly encourage you.  Read further:

clusters of blooms and budding fruit

lots and lots of little limes;
I'll soon selectively abort some to allow for the full growth of others
