Rangpur Lime Tree
Available in both 1 gallon and 3 gallon sizes.
Rangpur lime is not a true lime, but actually a sour mandarin that probably originated in India. It grows on a shrubby, small tree that at maturity will reach 15 feet or so under good conditions. The tree is upright and spreading, with branches that diverge at sharp angles to the main trunk. The tree is commonly multi-stemmed. Leaves are more lemon-like in appearance than mandarin, broad and elliptical. The fruit is the shape and size of a typical mandarin, 2-3 inches in diameter and oblate shaped, appearing much like a Clementine. They are bright orange inside and out, with a thin, mildly adherent peel. Fruit are commonly seedless, but may contain one or two seeds per fruit. Rangpur limes are probably about as hardy as Meyer lemons and will defoliate in the mid-20s, though the tree itself is hardy to about 20F.
