Citrus Gems. Desert Lime

74.95

A high yielding tree that produces grape sized, lemon like fruit with a wild taste of lime. Desert limes usually appear in summer.
The sweet tangy fruit has a very thin skin and requires no peeling, just slice it or use the whole fruit to make a zesty lime pickle or marmalade – macerate fruit in a sugar syrup or pop one into your icy cold beer for an Australian twist on a Mexican tradition.
Desert Limes are extraordinarily tolerant of dry conditions
Trees will begin to produce fruit from the 2nd autumn after they’ve been planted. Given they receive attention and nurture.
