300 Persian Lime Trees
The advantages of the Persian lime in commercial agriculture compared to the key lime are the larger size, absence of seeds, hardiness, absence of thorns on the bushes, and longer fruit shelf life. They are less acidic than key limes and do not have the bitterness that lends to the key lime’s unique flavor. A citrus fruit species of hybrid origin, the Persian lime is a triploid cross between key lime (Citrus × aurantiifolia) and lemon (Citrus limon).

The Washington Navel Orange is the perfect eating orange. Its loose skin is easy to peel, and the segments hold together well. It has no pesky seeds, and its sweet flesh is delicious to eat, add to salads, or bake with. The tree is sturdy and easily grown, and has sweetly scented blossoms.
