The Mexican lime packs a wallop of fragrance and flavor within its thin skin. The Mexican lime also has the most pungent leaves of any citrus. The Mexican lime is very sensitive to cold temperatures, which limits it to warm tropical and subtropical regions throughout the world. Mexican limes are frequently grown from seed since it is "true-type". The seeds are poly embryonic, meaning more than one embryo. This results in multiple trees being grown from one seed. Excellent Bonsai material.
