Most lime harvesting takes place in summer, regardless of the type. If you are looking for that many trees, your best bet would be to find a local supplier in your area or find one online. Oftentimes, these individuals will be more helpful in selecting the most appropriate line tree for your area. If you live in a citrus region, your local extension service will be able to help you with a variety that grow best and fastest in your area. I do also want to let you know, if you buy a lime tree, it will take about 3 years before the tree is mature enough to produce fruit.
