Thornless Mexican Key lime (Citrus x aurantifolia) is a highly desirable lime - especially for pies! - that forms rounded fruits 1-2 inches across that are usually picked commercially while green but are ripe when they turn yellow. Key limes have a unique flavour with higher acidity, stronger aroma, a thinner rind, and more sweetness and bitterness than other limes. Outdoors in the warm months. Houseplant in winter where you should watch for spider mite and scale. All of our citrus are grafted onto C-35 citrange, trifoliate orange, or other semi-dwarfing rootstock which confer good hardiness and production while reducing overall tree size.
