Information on limes
Despatched through autumn and winter you may notice that some of the fruit on your lime tree is actually showing yellow or orange. Rest assured you have received a lime and not an orange or lemon tree.
All limes varieties and species will change from bright green to yellow and orange as they become more ripe.
The limes that are bought in supermarkets are picked very immature to both retain the acidity, firmness and green colour. The flavour will also change with age and the yellow/orange fruits will be significantly sweeter than those that are picked bright green. In addition, limes are usually sold as quite a small round fruit as they are far from fully grown. The ripe fruits are much larger.
Rest assured, if you wish to pick green fruits, you will be able to do so next year when the fruits are at an earlier stage of ripeness.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
