Subtle Lime Flavor is GREAT in Recipes We love Key Limes, Tahiti Limes, Rangpur Limes and Mexican Limes for their tart flavor that gives us such mouth-puckering treats like pies and limeades and great sour flavored condiments. (What’s a fish taco without the lime?) But sometimes that lime taste is just a little overwhelming and lemon just won’t work. That’s when you need a delicious Palestine Lime. Palestine Limes aren’t ripe until they turn a soft yellow (not green like other limes). When they ripen they have a mild lime flavor, perfect for Middle Eastern and Asian cooking. These limes are wonderful squeezed in juice or tea, or grated for zest in baked goods or curries. This tree is a great landscape tree that is one of the hardiest citrus trees in cultivation. It is so hardy that growers often use it as rootstock for less hardy varieties, harnessing the robustness of the Palestine Lime’s roots and trunk to grow more fragile fruit in cooler places. The trees start off the season with very aromatic white flowers, which will make your garden smell heavenly. They are strong growers in pots indoors by a sunny window, too. Nature Hills ships only strongly rooted and well-branched young trees. They’ll come to you in top-notch condition and are ready to be planted in your yard or favorite large pot. * Subtle lime flavor * Hardiest citrus tree available * Great in containers.

The Biggest Citrus Fruit in the World! Basketball-sized grapefruit. That’s a joke, right? With a Chinese Grapefruit (Citrus maxima ‘Rutaceae’) it’s not a joke at all! The Chinese Grapefruit is the largest of all the edible citrus fruits out there. These sweet/tart fruits have been cultivated for centuries in Southeast Asia and have settled comfortably in the citrus growing regions of the US where they are starting to show up more frequently at market. If you let them have free reign, the fruit can actually grow to be BIGGER than a basketball, but are typically picked earlier. They are still much larger than any grapefruit you can buy on the market. They have a very thick rind that keeps the flesh protected very well. (Even though the rind is thick, once you taste one you’ll be convinced it’s worth the effort to get to the ‘prize’ in the middle!) Chinese Grapefruits are sweeter than the typical grocery store grapefruit you are used to. They have a sweet opening taste with a nice tartness to finish off. Use them to eat fresh, to cook with, to candy or to make juice. You can’t go wrong. Nature Hills ships only strongly rooted and well-branched young trees.

A Classic American Fruit You know a fruit is good when it’s been around since 1867. The Dancy Tangerine was bred in Florida just after the Civil War. It was a great fresh fruit then and is still a great fruit to grow. Dancy has juicy and tasty red/orange flesh and it ripens in December, so it is often called the Christmas Tangerine. You won’t find this on your supermarket shelf, though. Part of what makes the Dancy so good is also what makes it hard to bring to the mass market. It has a really loose skin that is super easy to peel. Unfortunately, that means that modern equipment bruise and scar the fruit. So, if you’d like to taste this little bit of American history, you’ll need to grow it yourself. Thankfully Nature Hills has got you covered.
