Answer: Deformed leaves on citrus trees is nearly always the result of citrus thrips feeding on the foliage. Generally nothing is done to correct this in home gardens because the damage does not affect the tree to any great extent and does not affect the fruit. Citrus trees can take several years to become established and to mature to the point where they can produce fruit and still maintain their health. I think your tree is struggling to establish its root system, but should be ready to fruit - providing wind, rain or cold weather doesn't knock the blossoms off. I'd give it a little more time to mature. One day soon you'll have lots of limes!
