Lime trees are an evergreen citrus variety and produce clusters of lightly fragranced white flowers. These small blossoms then grow to form the little green-skinned fruits. The tangy and sour, lemon adds flavor to every cuisine. Growing lemon trees from seeds is a bad idea because it can take up to at least 3 to 4 years to bear fruit.
