The Mexican Key Lime is one of the most popular North American lime trees. This is a thorn-free cultivar known by many names such as Key lime, Mexican lime, Bartender’s lime, and West Indian lime. The leaves are distinctively aromatic when crushed. The fruit is small with a thin, smooth, greenish-yellow rind at maturity that is especially fragrant. The flesh is greenish-yellow, seedy, and highly acidic, with a fine texture.

We are unable to ship any packages outside the contiguous 48 states. This means we are not able to ship to these locations: Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and other US territories.
