Giant Key Lime
HUGE Key Lime is Not Available in Stores!
If you love key limes, you know that it can take quite a few of the little guys to get enough juice to really use. For a while, there was a great fruit on the market that was easily twice the size of the diminutive Key Lime but with the same great sweet-tart flavor that you love in a pie or limeade. This Giant Key Lime (Citrus aurantifolia Swingle ‘Giant Key’) was a boon for the kitchen. Unfortunately, the fickle winds of fashion relegated this beauty to the sidelines and there are no more commercial growers of Giant Key Limes out there.
So, that makes us extra excited to say that we are able to offer the trees to home gardeners again! This true home garden novelty not only produces delicious double-sized fruit for you, it is also a striking landscape specimen with arching limbs and evergreen leaves. Try it in a container indoors if you don’t live in a citrus-friendly climate.
Once you’ve tasted your own home-made key lime pie, you will never ever buy a store-bought one again. You will enjoy a bounty of big fruit from this handsome tree, but only if you buy yours today from us!
* Deliciously sweet-tart fruit
* Perfect for small gardens and containers
