In the case of the Citrus latifolia-aurantifolia, they are small green round fruits that have the size of a mandarin.
The fruit of the lime tree is so to eat and tastes deliciously fresh, this is good for mixed drinks, etc.
In the spring the lime may go out again, do this after there is certainly no chance of frost.
Now the water need may be increased again, but keep it moderate (not overdoing a lot).
Also give dried cow manure pellet fertilizer to the plant every 3-4 weeks from April to the end of September. This will immediately react and new shoots begin to grow.
Grow shoots too long to your liking than the citrus cut back in the fall. This way you keep a desired shape. In the winter, let the citrus plant overwinter in a place that is as light as possible.
Giving little water, once a month is enough. No more fertilization in winter.
