Lime trees are extremely cold sensitive and cannot be expected to survive the freezing temperatures that occur through most of Texas unless special efforts are provided for freeze protection.
Mexican lime and the limequats are sufficiently small trees that they can be readily grown in large containers in areas where cold temperatures would preclude their being grown in the ground.
Limes are afflicted with the same pests and diseases as other citrus, so the reader is referred to Home Fruit Production--Citrus, Table 2.

 Daleys Fruit Tree: Lime - Tahitian
I have been wondering why the Tahitian Lime would be so popular among Australians and I think I might have found one of the reasons in Woolworths this week.
Limes were selling for $24.95 a kg which was even more expensive then Dragon fruit at $15.95 a kg.
So I guess many of you have thought that by purchasing one lime tree it won't take long before you have recouped the initial outlay of $19.90 for a Tahitian Lime.

 Spice Pages: Kaffir Lime (Citrus hystrix, jeruk purut, makrut)
Form a stereochemical point of view, it is remarkable that kaffir lime leaves contain only (-)-(S)-citronellal, whereas the enantiomeric form (+)-(R) citronellal is found in both lemon balm and (to a lesser degree) lemon grass, (note, however, that citronellal is only a trace component in the latter's essential oil).
The soup is flavoured with loads of chiles, lime juice, fish sauce and fresh spices: galanga, lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves.
Kaffir lime has a very strong, characteristic fragrance that cannot easily be substituted by other spices; lemon myrtle leaves or simply lime peel is probably the best substitute.
