I finally went out and got my lime tree in the hopes of maybe having at least a few baby limes for in spring this year for some tasty mojitos.
This is a Tahitian lime, which are the most delicious one for your cocktail needs and are also good for cooking with. I got a grafted plant which basically means that they have taken a shoot from a mature lime tree and glued it onto a root system of a younger plant. This just basically means that I'll be getting limes asap.
It may not be the prettiest tree, but I have high hopes!
