Hi,

 

Do you mean this

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemon

Considering that you are in B'lore I guess both should do well.

Hi Raaj, 

 

If you want to grow from a plant, Lalbagh has them available. Lemon and Lime as well as Mosambi. I have two lemon plants that give me 50 - 70 fruits a year. They require full light and lots of water for juicy fruit. A large pot also helps. You can feed regular NPK on a monthly basis and add manure regularly. It is an easy plant to grow. 

 

When each flowering season starts, you may want to prune some branches to get more yield. 

 

bye,

Meenakshi

Hi,

I bought a year old 2 new sweet lime plants. Can I plant it in big pot on terrace? How long it takes for a plant to bear a fruit if planted on ground and Pot ? The reason for planting in terrace is both sides Apt building is coming up. How much of sunlight is required for a healthy lime plant?

I was told by my nurserymen that pinching of all flowers for atleast one year will make it grow stronger. Is it true?

 

Regards,

Raman

Hello Raman,

The time it takes to flower depends on how the plant was raised. If it is from seed, it takes longer than a plant that was grafted or airlayered.
Do you see a graft?.
Pinching flowers will direct the plant to vegetative growth.
