Mexican Lime Thornless
Citrus aurantiifolia ‘Inermis’
Mexican Thornless Lime gives your potted patio area or yard a tropical feeling and your cocktails a twist. With a strong and bushy growth habit, this lime is everything you love about its parent, the Mexican Lime, but without those pesky thorns! The small Ping-Pong ball sized fruits are greenish-yellow when mature and the tangy flavor is prized for countless culinary uses. We call this lime 'Mexican Lime' because of our Arizona location, but it is also known as 'Key Lime' in the East which makes the famous pie.

Please note that no two plants are exactly the same, that’s what makes them so unique! There may be some slight variations in height, width, amount of leaves, etc. We do our best to ensure your plants are consistent and keep our listings updated. As these are live plants, they change frequently.
We have the ability to procure hundreds of varieties of plants from 2 inches to 5 gallons. If you do not see what you are looking for, please send us a message and we will see if we can help!
BARE ROOT NOTIFICATION-
Most cactus and agaves are available bare root, this can simplify shipping and dramatically decrease the package weight.
Almost all plants over 1 gallon in size will be shipped bare root.
Please note, shipments to Hawaii and Alaska have greater costs for shipping. We will help you find the best freight quotes we can. Plants shipped to Hawaii cannot include soil.
We cannot guarantee plants, but luckily most of them do just fine if kept in moderate temperatures. When shipping to extremely cold regions, we can supply a heat pack upon request or an ice pack when shipping from Arizona in the hot summers.
This magical, mystical plant is the queen of the southwest. It’s known for the key ingredient in tequila and mezcal, but also has other medicinal qualities. Even more impressive than the stately silhouettes in soft spectrums of greens and blues is their drought-tolerant qualities. Perfect for today’s world. Our healthy plants are grown here in Arizona. With over 57 varieties, we’re confident you’ll find at least a few of our agaves you can’t live without.
