Your Kaffir Lime is a lovely little tree, with double-lobed, dark green leaves that catch the sun with their glossy sheen. The small, green limes produced by your Kaffir have a bumpy exterior, an attractive addition to an already exotic appearance. Kaffir Lime is certainly a beautiful tree, but it is most sought-after for the exceptional fruit it produces. Both the leaves and fruit are highly aromatic with the lime itself possessing a fresh, tangy taste that is often said to be a one-of-a-kind lime flavor. The fruit, leaves, zest, and juice are critical to a variety of culinary dishes, including Thai, Cambodian, and Indonesian cooking. Even the leaves are an essential ingredient for flavoring many dishes, and parts of the Kaffir are sometimes used for medicinal and insecticidal purposes. Kaffir Lime will grow 7-10 feet in height, but can be easily pruned to 5 feet. It can be grown outdoors year-round in zones 9-10, but is best suited for indoors.

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.
Bring the Tropics to You! You’ve seen the pictures and heard the stories. The boat drops anchor in the clear blue water of the cove. They swim to shore and walk up to the ramshackle beach bar in their swimsuits, still dripping wet. The bartender doesn’t even need to ask what they want. He pours a couple of glasses and then reaches over to the lime tree growing right into the window and plucks a perfectly round, green lime, slices it in half and squeezes it into the drinks. Nothing has ever tasted so good…or so they tell you.Unfortunately we can’t sell you the boat, or the beach or the drinks. But we do have plenty of the Thornless Mexican Limes for sale!

You haven’t seen a fruit like this before! Don’t you love the look, smell and taste of a plate of fresh citrus slices? We do too. But that’s not what you’re going to get with the Australian Finger Lime.This lime is not your typical lime – it’s not even your typical citrus fruit. For starters, it’s not round…or oval…or even vaguely lime-like. It is long and thin, looking more like a pickle than anything else. (Weird, right?)You also don’t peel this lime or cut it into segments like you do other citrus fruit. Just cut it open and see. When you do you’ll find Australian Finger Lime spills out hundreds of fragrant, juicy little balls that look for all the world like caviar or the boba in the bottom of Asian tea. The little balls burst in your mouth with an explosion of lime flavor. They feel funny, but taste great!The Australian Finger Lime is a perfect addition to your yard if you live somewhere where citrus trees are happy. If not, it makes a great potted indoor plant in a sunny window all year.In the wild it is native to the rainforests of Australia, but has only recently been ‘rediscovered’.
