Culture

Many varieties available. Smaller fruits generally have less fibrous flesh. Seedling trees grow very tall and are very slow to fruit.
Harvesting Fruit mature over summer after up to 18 months after flowering. Test maturity by looking for the orange flesh colour under the skin. Scratch with a fingernail. Softens to ripe within a few days.
Length of time
until first crop
Five years. Grafting is recommended
Marketing Notes Fruit is picked hard and can have several days before it softens. Once soft it can be kept under refrigeration for up to a week with no flavour loss.

 

Food Preparation

The flavour is enhanced by limejuice. Small pieces can be mixed in a green salad, or blended into a milkshake.
