Lime Tree Fruit

Anonymous added on March 25, 2014 | Answered

Do I need more than one lime tree to have fruit? I have one 3-year-old lime tree that is about 9 ft tall, with very green sturdy shoots and very hard thorns but no buds and no fruit ever. I'm in central Texas and it has lots of afternoon sun and I think I'm watering it as directed on this site.

No, you do not need another tree for fruit production to occur. Several factors can lead to lack of buds or fruit. This article should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lime/reasons-and-fixes-for-lime-tree-not-producing-blossoms-or-fruit.htm
