Growing and harvesting

The Tahiti is lime variety is bred with no pips so very few seeds are
available to propagate trees. For this reason, cuttings of the tree
are grafted onto rootstock of other varieties. These are raised into
sturdy young plants in poly-tunnels. This takes about one year. The plants are then planted out in long rows in lime groves where they develop into bushes that are ready to produce the first harvestable limes. This process takes about two years. Full commercial production starts from the third year. Lime trees can ultimately reach a height of six to seven metres, but are usually pruned to about 2.5 metres. Limes are harvested all year round. First of all, the limes are picked by hand and collected in crates. The full crates are then taken to a central sorting station where they are graded for quality. Most of the limes, just like other citrus fruit, are dipped into a wax bath to

prevent dehydration during transport. They are then graded to size and packed in bulk in crates. Afterwards, the limes are shipped in reefers to the Netherlands. At Nature's Pride some of the limes are repacked from the bulk crates into consumer units, for example into an EAT ME net containing three fruits.
