ยป This is a dwarf, as is the Tahiti Lime. Warning: The buds are mercilessly predated by possums. Stop Press 2016-06-25: I finally picked an orange, and it was delicious!. It was not as sweet as commercial oranges, of course, which are bred to be very sweet. Pruning: No. Feeding: Use a complete fertilizer in late winter and late summer. See also Lisbon Lemon.
