Q.Color of Young, Unripened Limes

Anonymous added on December 13, 2010 | Answered

I have a young lime tree and it just started bearing fruit. The fruit is yellow. Is that normal? Does the skin turn green as it ripens?

They should start out green. It sounds like the soil is lacking in nitrogen. Have your soil tested and then add some nitrogen rich fertilizer.
