Indian sweet lime is a small evergreen tree with few thorns, growing 4 - 6 metres tall.
The tree is sometimes cultivated for its edible fruit, especially in India, the Mediterranean region, Vietnam and tropical America.
Three main climates are suitable for commercial citrus production - tropical climates, subtropical with winter rain such as in the Mediterranean and semitropical with summer rainfall as found in Florida and southern Brazil.
The optimal temperatures for citrus cultivation range between 25 - 30°c, with the coldest month having an average minimum of at least 15°c.
Growth generally ceases below 13°c and above 38°c. If there are dry periods of more than three months, then irrigation will be necessary. Prefers a deep, well-drained but moisture-retentive loamy soil in full sun. Prefers a pH in the range 5 - 6.
