The Tahitian Lime (Citrus x aurantifolia x limon), also known as the "Seedless Lime" and "Persian Lime", is a cross between Lemon and West Indian Lime. Celebrated not only for its seedless, juicy fruits and fragrant white flowers from Djilba to Kambarang (late winter to spring), This dwarf form is celebrated for its compact growth habit, making it an ideal choice for small gardens or pot cultivation. The petite size, combined with its robust green foliage, offers homeowners both a space-saving solution and a harmonious blend of aesthetic appeal and culinary utility.
Perfect for both in-ground and pot planting, the Tahitian Lime's dwarf form fits seamlessly into diverse garden spaces. For those planting in sandy soils, adding a premium soil conditioner optimises its growth potential. The tree favours sunny locations and necessitates consistent watering from Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn). During Birak (summer), a touch of citrus-specific fertiliser bolsters its vitality. After harvesting, a light pruning session rejuvenates its form and encourages fresh growth.
