Imagine a tropical getaway, clear blue water, palm trees and a fruity drink in your hand on the beach! Most likely that fruity drink has a slice of lime or a splash of refreshing Lime juice in it! While we don’t sell vacations and paradise, we can help you achieve that feeling at home with plenty of the Thornless Mexican Lime Trees (Citrus aurantifolia 'Mexican Thornless') for sale!

Thriving in Citrus-growing areas of the US as well as in containers in a sunny window everywhere else, this little Lime is the standard for bar Limes. But its deliciousness isn't limited to drinks - try it in cooking, too!

Great for zest, limeades and as a twist on traditional iced tea, you will find a hundred uses for this great fruit once you grow it for yourself. And as the name says, there are no nasty thorns to sting you when you're picking the fruit!

Planting and Application:

The lovely, fragrant white blossoms and glossy green evergreen foliage, Citrus trees are very ornamental landscape additions! The beauty of a smaller tree like the Mexican Lime is its space-saving versatility!

Tucking readily into small spaces and even porches, balconies and patios as container plants, dwarf and semi-dwarf trees allow anyone with a sunny area to grow their own fresh Limes! Create your own staycation by lining your patio or poolside with potted Lime trees!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Citrus trees do their best fruiting and flowering in the full sun, so provide at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day for your tree or risk your harvest’s size. Citrus also prefer to dry out a bit between waterings, so plant in enriched, slightly acidic, organic soil that’s well-drained.

Unfortunately, an exotic vacation might not be in your future...but a delicious Thornless Mexican Lime Tree can be! Order yours from NatureHills.com today and get ready to be transported someplace tropical!
