It was always my dream to have fresh limes that I could harvest from my garden. Limes that I could safely eat whole, skin and all, without harming myself with pesticides.
I have a lime plant in my garden for many donkey years. And not once did it bloom. Until last year.
Right after Chinese New Year 2016, it was covered with flowers.
Whoa! I was so excited.
But I was skeptical. Because the plant did flower once. Three buds, three flowers and then, all aborted.
And then one day I saw this.
I remember snapping pics of my plant full of limes but sadly I can't seem to find them. So I will just show you the harvest.
I love these in sambal belacan and I like to eat the whole lime (minus seeds) because I love the taste.
Sadly, my lime plant is not flowering anymore. Maybe it needs fertilizer.
