New to citrus and question about my Persian Lime
I just picked up a lime tree. It's about 2 feet tall and was pruned when I got it. I'm thinking it may have been at least 3 feet before the pruning. As far as I can see there are no signs of fruit or flowers. The leaves look extremely healthy. The lady at the nursary said it would likely produce fruit this summer and seemed quite sure of it.
My question is, when do you think I'll see signs of fruit or flowers? And on a plant this size, how many limes can I expect to see? Just a ball park here. Are we talking
2-4 or 10 or 20?
I live in Southern Ontario (6a) facing SW 10 floors up in an apartment. The tree is currently indoors as the temp is too cold to bring outside (-10C to 5C).
Also, I've been eating some of the leaves and they taste great; minty! They make great tea as well! Though I think I'll try to hold off on doing any more leaf nibbling. : /
