The Q&A Archives: Lemon Tree from Peru

Question: I'm from Peru and I would like to have a peruvian lemon tree at home but I dont know what's the name that they use here in California. Here they sell mostly what they call Improved Meyer Lemon, but that's not what I want. Do you have any suggestions or where do I have to go or write to have my question answered? Thank you for reading me. Javier

Answer: You are looking for Citrus aurantifolia, the Peruvian lemon. In the US it is called Mexican Lime or Key Lime. The fruit is small and a yellowish green color. Hope this is the fruit tree you are seeking.
