The Tahiti Lime makes a stunning patio feature and produces bright green, zesty fruits throughout the year. Set against a foil of glossy, dark foliage, the delicate clusters of tiny white flowers fill the air with their delicious fragrance. The fruits that follow may take up to a year to ripen but are well worth the wait. The lovely seedless limes are produced in abundance and if left on the tree will eventually turn yellow. Once harvested, Limes will keep for up to 2 weeks.
