We have been searching for wild lime to offer our customers all season and we've just secured a bunch of big healthy trees! Wild Lime is a native to South Florida and is considered a shrub or small understory tree. It makes small but beautiful and fragrant yellow flowers during winter that pollinators love, and it serves as an important host plant for giant swallowtail butterflies. If you've never seen their larvae they are super cool and are camouflaged to look like bird poop! The leaves and bark of this plant do smell like citrus when crushed and can be used as a spice in small doses.
