Q.What Kind Of Fertilizer Do You Give Boxwood Bushes

Zone Fremont, Ca 94539 | Juls W added on August 25, 2021 | Answered

My kafir lime tree has changed the shape of the leaves. It has been moved twice, this last time into a pot. Now, it is flowering but the leaves are not of the same shape anymore. After researching, I understand that this new branches are from the rootstock. My question is can I still safe my kafir plant by cutting away all the leaves that is not 2-lobe? If I can’t, and if these flowers turn out to be oranges or another fruit, is it ok to eat them? Thanks, Juls W

Please match your question with the title. Asking a different question than the title adds confusion when adding tags to these questions. I will fix the title for you, this time.

It sounds like your lime has reverted to its rootstock. You will have to contact the nursery that you purchased the tree from to know whether the rootstock is an edible citrus. Likely, not, though.

If you can be sure of the identity of some of the branches, then you can cut all but those.
