Lime Tree

Light: full sun
Salt: moderate salt tolerance
Deer: will eat

Notes: Lime trees generally are too cold sensitive to grow in this area however there are two that do well – Persian and Key Limequat. Persian is definitely more cold sensitive than the limequat. It is a tree that has been hybridized with a kumquat to make it more cold hardy. Pure Key Lime trees will freeze in this part of the world. The fruit, however, is exactly like a Key Lime in taste and size. Persian limes are similar to the “grocery store” limes.
