Unlike a lime you’d buy at the grocery store, key limes are smaller, have a thinner, smoother peel, and tend to be more tart. These little trees have thorns, are filled with small green leaves, and boasts fragrant blossoms in the summer months. Sunlight is crucial – keep near a window with full sun exposure and take it outside in the summer months. Mist or keep in a humid environment over winter to prevent leaf drop and feed with citrus fertilizer spring through fall for best yields. Typically, citrus is ready to harvest in the winter months.
