Key Lime Tree won't bear fruit!
Let me start by saying I've read every forum imaginable and have tried just about everything. I bought this "Key Lime" tree almost 10 years ago at a gift shop in Florida. It was pretty much a twig about 8" tall with a few leaves wrapped in plastic in a tiny pot. So year after years it's been steadily growing but has NEVER even flowered. It's always been in a container and brought in during winter. I've tried to never have it outside when it's 50 degrees or colder. Over winter it's near a window but doesn't get full sun. In summer it gets full sun all day. I've read that if it was started from a seed it could take up to 7 years to mature, but as of now it's at least 10 years old. This past spring I started fertilizing it with Citrus fertilizer, which resulted in lots of new branches and leaves but still no blossoms! I've also read about root stock, grafting and scions, but that's all way over my head. Just wondering if there's anything more I can do or is it a lost cause and I should just start over with a tree bought from a real nursery and not a gift shop!
