Would like to transplant lime tree out of pot into ground. It is about 7 years old. Gives fruit, not too much but enough for season. Is it possible without damage, or should I just leave in pot? Live in Phoenix, Arizona.

There is some risk when you transplant mature citrus trees that they will be stressed and not produce fruit for several years, if ever. Some people have succeeded with this, especially when transplanting from a container to the ground. However I would recommend just leaving it in the pot for best chances of future fruit.
