Growing in a pot

The small tree has narrowed leaves in the center and thorns on the branches. The white flowers give rise to small round fruits not exceeding 5 to 6 cm in diameter. The rind of the fruit has a lumpy texture and is a deep green color which turns yellow when ripe. It is smaller and more acidic than lemon. It is grafted onto citrus rootstocks. Generally we mainly use its zest or its leaves. It enhances the taste of many dishes, such as tomato rougails or chili sauces. The juice is used to prepare a thirst-quenching drink. An excellent source of vitamin C, it plays an antioxidant role and improves the absorption of iron by the body. 

Height at maturity: 6-7 feet

Self-fertile

Instructions for growing in pots (recommended): 

Leave the plant outside between May and October but bring it inside between October and the end of April, until the spring frosts are over. Place in a warm place on your land protected from the winds and place in full sun. Enlarge the pot every 2 years as needed depending on growth and add fertilizer of your choice as needed. Can easily withstand a semi-dormant winter period in a cool place between 8° and 14°C... Ex: semi-heated garage. Finally...Remember to acclimatize your plant to the sun in spring by not placing it directly in full sun for the first few days but going there gradually otherwise the leaves will burn in the sun in a few days.
