Pots: Use a commercial potting mix and avoid excessive use of animal manure and commercial organic fertilizers - this may cause root burn and potential root disease.

 

Harvesting: The tree will begin properly producing fruit at 3-4 years old. They tend to fruit between late March to May.

 

Growing Conditions: Finger Limes prefer a well drained soil with a PH of 6.5 to 7.5 Dig a hole 2 to 3 times the size of the Finger Lime pot. Break up the soil in the base of the planting hole and mix in compost and slow release fertilizer. Slit both sides of the bag and do not disturb the roots when removing the bag. Lower the tree into the planting hole ensuring the soil level of the plant is the same level of the soil prior to excavation. Water well with a solution of seaweed or other soil conditioners. 

Position: Finger lime prefer a semi-shaded position.

Maintenance: Fertilize in spring and summer with a general citrus fertilizer. Folio feed is also recommended. Finger Limes are susceptible to scale and sooty mould. Use a neem oil to control if this occurs.

Size: 2 metres (average) - can be kept shorter in pots with regular pruning.
