We have an exceptional lime

The Tahiti LIme tree is moderately vigorous, medium to large, grows to 15 or 20 feet (4.5 m-6 m), almost without large spines and hanging branches. The leaves are wide lanceolate, with winged petioles; Young shoots are purple. The flowers are produced most of the year, but especially in January and August, slightly dyed purple.

The fruit is oval, oblong or short elliptical, usually rounded at the base or ribbed with a short neck, the apex is rounded with a small nipple, 4 cm to 6.5 cm wide and 2 to 3 inches (5 -8.5 cm) tall.

It is bright green until they ripen, when the skin becomes pale, soft, thin yellow, clinging tightly, the pulp is light yellowish green when ripe, in 10 segments, tender, acidic, but without the characteristic aroma of Mexican lemon (subtle), usually seedless, rarely with one or a few seeds, especially if planted among other citrus species. The flowers of Tahiti LIme have no viable pollen.
