Grafted, Contains seeds

Its name is a bit misleading because its reddish, tangy fruit looks more like a tangerine than a lime. This fairly vigorous tree has a few small thorns, leaves similar to those of the tangerine and small flowers with petals tinged with purple. The tree is primarily used as rootstock, but many enjoy its tart flavor. It is reported to be quite cold tolerant.

Height at maturity: 12-14 feet.

Harvest: November to February.

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.
