Sedena-on Melgar, and Airport Blvd

Also try el mercado -- the municipal market on Rosada Salas between Ave 20 and Ave 25.  Limes run out here from time to time and it can be a week or more before we get them again.  Then sometimes they are ROCKS.  You want to buy ones with very smooth skin and a little bit of give when you squeeze them.  I am a Mayan Mama according to my daughter and squeeze all produce before choosing, flipping it back in the bin with a derogatory sneer if it doesn't suit.  Jee Jee.

We bought our lime tree last year on 25 near 11. She had several different sizes.....we have it potted on our terrace and it had tons of fruit last year. This year a norte took the flowers, so hopefully we'll get a 2nd bloom.

Yup, they have lime trees, and rosemary plants, and bougainvillea, and lots of other beautiful growing things!

 

Thanks again for the recommendation. Time to dig holes!
