The Key Lime Bush is a compact, bushy form of citrus tree that produces the world-famous Key Lime. Renowned for drinks and cooking, it is also called Mexican lime and Bartender’s lime. It has evergreen leaves, fragrant white flowers tinted with purple and small green fruits that pack the most incredible lime juice there is. It can be grown in the ground in hot zones, and in a pot everywhere, keeping it outdoors in the summer and indoors in the winter.

  • The world’s most famous lime tree
  • Easy to grow as a potted tree anywhere in the country
  • Grow outdoors in summer, indoors in winter
  • Can grow outdoors all year in hot zones
  • Produces fruit for half the year.

Grow the Key Lime Bush in full sun when outdoors, and in a bright, cool place when indoors. Feed and water regularly outdoors, but keep drier through the winter months. It can also be grown outdoors all year round in zones 9 and 10. Plant in any well-drained soil. Little pruning is needed, and flowers formed indoors should be hand-pollinated with a small brush.
