Lime Tree Suckers

Anonymous added on July 19, 2011 | Answered

I bought a lime tree from a nursery. The leaves all fell off and after a month suckers appeared at the base of the trunk. Now I have five prominent suckers and would like to make one lime tree that will produce. How do I cut out one and plant?

The suckers are probably of an inferior variety. You may not want the variety. But, if you would like to try, you can simply cut off all but one sucker and treat it as you would have the original tree.
