1. It can take anywhere from 3-6 years for a lime tree grown from a seed to mature enough to produce fruit.
2. It really depends on what variety you buy and how you prune it as to whether it takes on a tree or shrub shape.
3. I am not sure on that. Again, fastest growing would be a local thing. Some varieties grow faster in some areas than others. 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.
