  1. Lots of juice in a little package Review by WM Tech
    How do you rate this product?

    I'm a novice with growing citrus. I would have given the Key Lime 5 stars if it was easier to grow or maintain. I live in a coastal zone 8 in North Carolina, so my Key Lime remains in a pot to be brought in during the winter months. It receives light naturally and from grow lights. For some reason, it looses its leaves when it flowers. After about a year and a half, it finally produced a couple limes the size of golf balls. I was amazed by how much juice is in those tiny limes. Not only that, but the juice was quite potent and so much better than limes in a grocery store. My Key Lime grew quickly and the foliage is not as dense as the one in the photo. Hopefully my plant will start to look more like the one in the photo as I learn how to care for it appropriately. (Posted on 4/4/2018)
