Ryan and I purchased a lime tree this weekend from Mulhall’s in Omaha, NE. It is a Persian Lime (sour) that is hardy to a Zone 10. I potted it up outside but we are going to keep it inside permanently. The care instructions on the tag say that it needs fertilized every six weeks for the first three years and then after that, three times per year between March – September.How long do you think it will take to grow limes? I didn’t realize that limes had thorns! See in above photo. I just love this pot! The care card also included a recipe for Mango-Lime Salsa.
2 mangos (peeled and diced)
1 small red onion (minced)
1 tbsp fresh ginger (peeled, chopped)
2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1 lime (juiced)
2 tbsp cilantro (chipped)
1 tbsp vegetable oil
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Serve with grilled fish, shrimp or chicken. Serve with chips.
