Lime Trees
Q.

lime tree fruitless

Anonymous added on August 4, 2015 | Answered

I have an indoor lime tree which seemed reasonably happy, producing a few edible limes per season. I transplanted it into a larger pot and since then it has not produced fruit. It continues to grow new leaves, though periodically drops a few green leaves (this indicates it's too dry?). Any idea why the fruit no longer appears? Thanks!

Here is an article that explains why lime trees do not blossom or fruit:

If I had to venture a guess I would say repotting the lime tree caused it some stress and it just needs time to work itself out.
