Not a lime, actually a cross between a mandarin and a lemon, more cold hardy and easy to grow. The Rangpur lime fruit is easy to peel and very juicy. You might want to save the juice for the kitchen though, as the fruit is sour like a lemon.

 

It smells very sweet and floral, is a rich orange colour, and makes excellent marmalade, dessert pies, sauces and glazes for savoury dishes, and cocktails. (Try one part juice, two parts Grand Marnier, three parts tequila, over ice; or with gin. BRB we're off to the bottle-o...)

Citrus reticulata x medica, Citrus x limonia - Rangpur lime, mandarin lime

APPEARANCE : Fast growing thorny citrus tree with deep green leaves, more cold tolerant than true limes. Fruit is sour, pippy, with a thin peel and deep orange floral-zesty juice. Fragrant leaves can also be used like kaffir lime leaves for cooking. These plants are seed-grown.
USE FOR : Feature planting, orchards and kitchen gardens, privacy hedging.
CLIMATE : Needs a temperature over 5C and a temperature change between summer and winter for best fruiting. Very heat tolerant.
PLANTING : Plant in full sun and well drained soil; they do not like getting their roots wet. Will grow in fairly alkaline soils but alkaline water may cause yellowing of the leaves; treat with citrus-specific plant food if this occurs.
CARE : Prune to desired height if necessary; any seasonal pests can be treated with eco-oil or similar.
MATURE HEIGHT & WIDTH:  4.5 m x 3 m.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
