    1. T & T Supermarket. I bought them there recently, and they have always had them when I've looked.

          Oops. Sorry!!! The leaves. I didn't read your post thoroughly. I have no idea where to buy a tree. Good luck! Let us know if you succeed in growing one, as lime leaves are one of my favourite things.

      1. seen it at Sheridan nurseries ,Ellesmere branch , or Valleyview nurseries , Kennedy and Finch

        1. I bought mine at Humber Nurseries 2 years ago ... didn't see any up there a few weeks ago when I went, but they obviously have a source they could order one from ...

            Check Humber. Can't bear Sheridan.

              Do you think they have Bearss lime too?

              1. re: Vinnie Vidimangi

                They did have a Persian (aka Bearss) Lime when I was at Humber a few weeks ago

          2. Anyone find one currently in stock in Toronto? I've tried all over the place, including Sheridan and Humber, and no one seems to have one now.

                Just missed out on the plants on ebay! Last one was sold only a few hours ago :(

                Thanks for the tip though... didn't think to look on ebay, but will keep an eye out.
