Product Description

Enjoy full-sized limes from a pint-sized tree! The Dwarf Key Lime tree will only grow 2' tall, and in about 1-3 years, it will bear juicy, nearly seedless limes about the size of a golf ball. Use the fruit as garnish for cold drinks, squeeze the juice to liven up your drinks, and bake into key lime pies. In the summertime, move the tree outdoors and let the bees take care of pollination for you! Until it bears fruit, its beautiful blossoms prouce a lovely fragrance, and its shiny, deep green leaves make Dwarf Key Lime a lovely addition to any home. Zones 9-10.
