Key Lime

Gardening in a Minute is no longer being updated or maintained.


Key limes are tarter, smaller and more round in shape than the limes more likely to be found in grocery stores, the Tahitian lime. While key limes are no longer grown commercially in Florida, many South Florida homeowners are lucky enough to have a key lime tree of their own.
