Should a Persian Lime Tree Be Planted Toward the North or South?

When planting Persian lime trees (Citrus latifolia Miller), or Tahiti lime, situate the tree in the warmest location in the landscape. The south side of a structure is the warmest location and the west side is the next warmest area, according to the University of Florida. Only gardeners living in frost-free areas should plant Persian lime trees towards the north.
