Key Lime (Citrus × aurantiifolia or C. aurantifolia)

*3 years old Air Layered from fruiting mother plant. Most plants has fruited or ready to fruit now. 

The Citrus Aurantiifolia is the perfect plant for your home. You can grow these plants in whichever container you like. These plants can surely flourish if you live in an area with a temperate climate. The lush green-leaved and white and pink blossoms can be the perfect aesthetic for your home. You can grow these plants, enjoy the fruits of your labor, and make delicious Key lime pie. 

Fresh key lime juice is preferred for flavoring marinades, making limeade, and garnishing drinks and plates due to its tantalizing bouquet and unique flavor. The juice is used for syrups and, of course, key lime pie.

Air layered Key Lime plants will produce fruit much earlier than the seedling grown equivalent.
