I bought a Mexican lime and when it came in yesterday it was covered with hundreds of long very sharp thorns. I was told that the tree is three years old. I do not think it is a grafted tree. How long will it take to bloom? Did I buy the wrong thing?

Wish I could answer your question. I was raised in S. Fla and we always had Key Limes but I never paid any attention to gardening back then.

You might dmail Cyberageous as she grows key lime trees to sell.
