#1: Lime Tree Varieties

Posted on 2006-07-18 01:45:52 by lb

I'm trying to find a Lime tree that is going to do well over here in Perth.

I've tried the Tahitian Lime before, but it's fruit never ripened on the
tree properly. It was very healthy otherwise.

I have since heard that the Palestine Sweet Lime is a good choice for over
here. Has anyone had any experience with these (maybe also known as Indian
Sweet Lime)? If so, has anyone seen them for sale here?

I'd also like to try a couple of the newer native lime varieties that have
been released in the Eastern states. I can't find them in any nurseries in
Perth, and am unable to get an interstate nursery to send any over (WA has
strict rules for live plant imports, even interstate). I'd like to try the
Australian Blood Lime, and maybe one of the Finger Lime or Desert Lime
varieties. Has anyone out there had success with the Native Limes?

Thanks,


Liam.

&gt;

I cannot imagine why the Tahitian lime would not do well in Perth's climate
but I have not lived there. My understanding is that it is a warm
mediterranean climate (hot dry summer, mild wet winter, no frost). If that
is so the only problem I see you having is watering in summer. Maybe you
had a crook tree.

I have a Kaffir Lime tree but I don't know (yet) what its fruit will be
like but its very hardy. I use the leaves in Thai cooking which is the
preferred leaf for that. Don't know about Perth tho' as I'm in a cold area.

We have an Indian and a Tahitian and they both produce limes here N.O.R.

I'm south of the river and planted a tahitian lime a couple months ago.
It isn't looking the greatest (dropped most of its leaves) but is definitely
still alive.
I would be disappointed to learn they won't grow well here!

She'll be right! citrus drops leaves anytime they are upset for whatever
reason, much like cats vomitting :-)
They're tough species but tend to sulk if things aren't right !!
Regular feeding will help a lot (Like cats)

I'm south of the river and have a wonderfully productive Tahitian Lime - at
least 2 abundant crops a year. In its infancy the tree was prone to
de-leafing itself, but it grew out of that as it aged. I can't imagine an
area of Perth that one of these (or any other citrus) would not be a
delightfully productive tree.

That sounds a lot like what mine was doing, dropping it's leaves. But even
after a year or so when it was healthy, the fruit just wouldn't ripen. The
limes would be the right size, and abundant, but they would drop off before
getting ripe... From other posts it sounds like they just need a bit of
extra time to get settled in, then a bit more attention too.

I'd still like to know if anyone has experience of the Palestine Sweet Lime,
or any of the Aussie native limes?

Thanks for all of the replies so far!

G'day Liam ,
I can't help you in Perth, but I hope you don't mind if
I start a new 'branch' with regard to Lime trees.

My better half has decreed that we will have a Lime
tree, and soon! And so, which one? We are looking for fruit here, not
leaf.

Does one variety produce fruit over a longer period than others?,
Does one variety produce better fruit for cooking or brewing?,
Does one variety produce better cocktails or nutrician?,
Does any body .......

I live right by the coast on a solid (it felt like when digging out
soakwells) limestonepad. Our alkalinity is high. chicken manure i was told
adds to the akalnity?

maybe thats what my trees need then. hmm interesting.t hanks

Then you want a Tahitian lime, not a Kaffir lime.

Hm OK Then I would suggest trying some sort of acid based correction.
Sulphate of Ammonia or similar.. Ask you nursery man or try this link
<a href="here...http://www.thegardenhelper.com/acidsoil.html" target="_blank">here...http://www.thegardenhelper.com/acidsoil.html</a>
To be able to take up nutrient efficiently a tree or plant must have
a fairly neutral soil, unless it like the acid conditions...Then it will
cope...

Hope this webpage helps...
