Cape Limes?


I was hoping you could assist me please. I am looking at growing lime trees for produce in Cape Town.

Do you have any idea if:

a) It is feasible to grow them in Cape Town?

b) What sort of conditions are needed to grow them?

c) What areas in Cape Town would be suitable?

d) What type of Lime Tree to plant?

I would very much appreciate any information you could give me.

Many thanks,

    Hi Fern,
    As far as I know, it should be relatively easy to grow limes in CT as citrus fruits prefer a Mediterranean climate. Not sure of the other details…

    Who can advise Fern on how best to grow a lime tree in the Cape?
