Trademark lime-green fruit, dripping with citrus flavor will populate your tree season after season.

But the best part is you can harvest your limes right inside your home. Pot up your Persian Lime and place it by a sunny window in your favorite room and you'll be amazed at all the limes that arrive each winter!

Love our Persian Lime Tree
Bought the Persian Lime & a Navel Orange tree, the Lime tree is doing awesome! Had lots of blossoms and fruit, can't wait to harvest them! Orange tree hasn't done as well, glad we got the insurance as I think it will go back and hopefully have better luck with the replacement tree.

Wonderful little producer!
I have had this little tree for several months now. We have picked 3 limes off the tree and it is still producing. The taste is so much better than store bought. Very low maintenance as well. I would recommend this tree to anyone!

A good buy
When I first got this delivered it was beautiful and full and with in a few days all the leaves dropped and I became worried. I took some pics and traded emails with the company. They assured me it was a little shipping trauma and not to worry. They were correct. After a few weeks the tree is developing new leaves and buds. I'm looking forward to what this tree will produce in the near future. I bought the 4 to 5 foot tree and am likely to have limes this year. It is very important you water your citrus tree correctly. The company is willing to help and provide any information you could possibly need and I urge anyone to take advantage of that. I have also ordered a grape vine that is also starting to get leaves and buds. I have no complaints and 100% recommend this company for your fruit tree needs.

Persian Lime Tree
Love the lime tree! I was kind of worried when I took it out of the box because it didn't look very good, but when I planted it, it took off. It's three times bigger than when I got it 2 months ago and I just picked out first lime. Love it!

Great tree
I bought the bigger tree advertised, it arrived healthy but I thaught it was a little small. The trunk was less then 1/2 inch. That's my only complaint, I have owned it for 6 months and it's thriving the trunk is over 1 inch now and probably my fastest growing tree I've bought from fgt. It bloomed when I got it in April and produced 2 limes. Now October and it full of blooms, and I mean full blooms. It big enough now it going to hold many, many limes. I'm excited and recommend this tree??????
Fast growing for sure. It doubled in size in 6 months??
Trunk has grown from less then 1/2 inch to 1 inch in 6 months??
Blooms everywhere??
I will pick these soon??
Great fast growing tree??

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Persian 'Bearss' Lime Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Persian 'Bearss' Lime Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Persian 'Bearss' Lime Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Persian 'Bearss' Lime Tree again after the transplant is complete.

bought lime tree last year... it.did great had lots of limes. Put tree in bigger pot and have no blossom or lime...why??
nancy p on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If the plant is healthy, your lime tree could just be using its energy in growing its roots, rather than producing flowers and fruit. Just give it time to catch up. However, there are other reasons a healthy plant isn't producing fruit. Your tree might lack nitrogen and phosphorus; phosphorus will impact the plant's ability to produce flowers. Limes need more heat to bloom than other citrus; make sure nothing is blocking the sun or cooling the area. And be sure not to prune the tips of the branches, which is were buds are formed.
When to fertilize ?
Mdearriaga on Aug 7, 2014

Liz81 on Jun 26, 2016

At What height does it start to bear fruit?
HNK9316 on May 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They will start to produce at 3 years old, so a 4-5 foot tree.
My lime tree is losing leaves. What do I give it?
Kathy W on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting us. Citrus trees can loose leaves for a couple of reason. It could be a result of transition stress if you recently received your tree or recently moved it indoors. If your tree has recently fruited sometimes it will drop foliage afterwards. If the tree is being kept near an area where there is a vent or draft that can cause it to drop foliage as well.

You can also try misting your tree daily to raise the humidity around it;especially if its being kept in your home and the air is dry. Additionally, You can try fertilizing your plant with Espoma Citrus Tone, Dr Organic Earth or another citrus tree fertilizer. I hope this information is helpful. Please contact us should you have additional questions. We can be reached at 1-888-504-2001.

When do I harvest my limes?
Thanks Cathy
Cathy B on Sep 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: To determine whether or not the lime is fully ripened you will want to twist one from the stem of the Lime tree. Once that is done cut it open and if it is juicy inside they are ready to be harvested. If not, you will want to wait a little longer.
Does the lime tree need pruning ever?
Barb T on Aug 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Persian Lime Tree doesn't often require pruning. You can prune it to keep it at a desires height or shape. If winter damages any of the limbs, they'll need to be pruned. Also if you have a lot of branches making tons of small limes it will be good to prune a few back so that you'll get bigger limes. A few big ones are often better than a lot of small ones.
Dose this tree need a pollinator to get fruit?
Cynthia D on Aug 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Persian Lime Tree is self fertile, and does not need a pollinator. However the fruit yield tends to be much higher when Persian Lime Trees have mates to pollinate with.
