Kaffir Lime maturity
I planted a Kaffir lime from seed five years ago. The tree is healthy and has grown and is well established but the trunk and branches are small and spindly. How long should it take before it flowers and has fruit? It is about four feet high and the trunk is only about 1/2 inch in diameter.

Citrus trees that are grown from seed can take up to a decade or more to reach fruiting maturity. This is why most commercially sold citrus are rooted from cuttings.
You likely have quite a few more years before you will see fruit from the tree.
