       Native to China, this hybrid of lemon and orange parentage, is sweeter and less acidic than true lemons and was introduced to the USA in 1908, by Frank Meyer, an agricultural explorer. The fruit has deep yellow skin; thinner than other lemons and edible, with a floral scent. 
        The Improved Meyer Lemon is disease resistant and is popular with chefs who incorporate its unique sweetness and fragrance into their recipes. Its hardiness and ornamental characteristics make the Meyer attractive to growers and gardeners. Although it is tolerant of cold, it still needs to be covered or brought indoors when temperature drop below 20 Fahrenheit. Container growing is successful with its ultimate height reaching 6 feet with our particular rootstock.

The Kieffer Lime tree is also known as the Makrut Lime, or Thai Kieffer Lime tree. It is popular for d
istinct dark green edible leaves, with double lobes (a 'lip' shape). The leaves are crushed or cut fine to infuse curry sauces & soups used in Thai, Cambodian and Indonesian cooking. Leaves may be used fresh from the tree, stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator or dried. This variety will grow to 4 - 5 ft with pruning. Self-pollinating, aromatic flowers produce bumpy green Kieffer Lime fruit, with a much thicker rind than most other limes and lemons.  Plant Care

The Calamansi (Calamondin) tree is known in the Philippines, as the Filipino Lemon! It produces multitudes of tiny limes that may be used when they are green or left on the tree until they are a wonderful 'orange' color. However, they do not become sweeter with the change in color, they are always very tart.
The citrus star of the Philippines is also known other names, such as kalamansi, chinese oranges, golden limes, and calamondin. The Calamansi tree produces many singular, intensely aromatic flowers along with leaves that are small and upright, producing a very bushy effect to the overall aesthetic image of the tree.

 The Persian Lime is also known as the Bearss Seedless Lime or Tahitian Lime. These limes turn green in tropical climates but turn yellow when growing in pots. This is another small - semi-dwarf - orchard tree growing within the confines of a pot so that it may continue growing and producing limes all year long. This is the most popular lime around, with it's trademark lime-green fruit, full of citrus flavor which is a combination of Key Lime and a lemon without the seeds, bitterness or acidity.
