Versatility Merges with Organic Growth

Distinct flavor in a sumptuous, seedless fruit. The Persian Lime Tree is an organically-grown staple that belongs in the limelight. Not only is this garden star a great patio plant that produces indoors, with large limes nearly the size of lemons, but it’s also a hardy plant that’s drought tolerant and pest resistant.

One of the most popular lime varieties available, the Persian Lime Tree produces iconic lime-green fruit, bolstered by rich citrus taste that populates its branches season to season. Persian Limes boast a savory blend, a mix between a key lime and a lemon, without the seeds, acidity or bitterness. This tree’s full size brings forth a huge bounty of delectable fruits – a harvest that’s simply unbeatable.

Known for its unique, almost spicy, fragrance that sets it apart amongst other citrus fruits, it's tamer than the key lime but even more flavorful. The best part? You can harvest these organically-grown limes right at home. Plant your Persian Lime Tree in a pot and place it by a sunny window in any space – the Persian Limes will grow plentifully, despite being indoors. Organic benefits with delicious, eye-catching fruit, indoors or out: The Persian Lime Tree is an essential addition to your plant repertoire.

Order your Persian Lime Tree today to enhance your garden in the most versatile way!

Looking Good
Arrived after 2 days looking healthy. I immediately removed from the box and placed in the shade. After 2 days, I repotted into a 1 gallon pot. The next day I could see some new growth. The only minor issue is that there was a small branch from the root stock that wasn't removed and it started growing with the rest of the tree, so I cut it off and noticed a few hours later it was trying to regrow. The leaves were patterned differently and it was clearly below the graft line. I wish the young and fragile tree was putting its energy into productive growth instead, oh well. Still a great experience so far.

Best limes I have ever had!
I got 5-6 foot tree. Flowered within a few weeks of receiving it. I have been enjoying limes some 6 months later that are the juiciest limes I have ever had. It grew 9 limes to maturity and is beginning to bloom again.

Impressed immediately.
12/27/16 - Our 3-4 ft tree arrived 5 days ago, very healthy right out of the box. We finally found a pot to fit it (not an easy feat in December). The root system looked strong when we planted it last night. I'll update this review as we go along. I don't expect a lot to report in terms of fruit for a bit while it settles into its new home. I did purchase root rocket with it.
This is our 3-4 ft lime tree immediately out of the box. I couldn't believe it was so healthy!

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??

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!

Planting & Care



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


Persian 'Bearss' Lime Tree - USDA Organic Planting Diretions

The Persian 'Bearss' Lime Tree (Citrus latifolia) is a wonderfully fragrant, delicious lime tree that produces fruit equal to the size of most lemons. The fruit is a distinctively tasty, seedless lime that form within the first year! The Persian is a full sun lover commonly grown in USDA zones 8-11 for outdoor planting but can be successfully container grown and brought indoors if you’re in a colder zone. This particular citrus tree can reach heights of 15-20 feet tall and a width of 5-10 feet wide at its maturity so make sure there is plenty of space to accommodate its mature height.

Seasonal Information: Persian 'Bearss' trees will do best in warmer climates as it is classified as a tropical plant. Zones 8 to 11 are ideal for outdoor planting. However, if you do experience cold winters, plant your Persian 'Bearss' tree in a container and bring it inside for the fall and winter seasons. We recommend planting in Spring through Fall for outdoors since they are sensitive to colder temperatures.

Selecting a location: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, 6-8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade, but thrive in full sun. You'll want to ensure trees are spaced 8-10 feet apart if planting more than one. These trees also do better in areas with high humidity so you may also need to create humidity for your tree by misting the leaves daily with water. Potted plants do enjoy a daily misting for humidity but placing a tray with rocks filled with water under the plant will feed humidity to the tree as the water evaporates.

Planting Directions (in Ground): If you are located in zones 8-11 and your winter temperatures stay consistently warm, your Persian 'Bearss' will do well being planting outside in the ground. Be sure the area has well draining soil.

1) Dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system.
2) Place the tree in the hole and back fill it with your sandy, well-draining, acidic soil. If you have clay soil, try amending it with sand, stone, perlite or fine potting soil.
3) Tamp the soil down as you backfill the hole to cut back on any pockets from forming.
4) After planting, be sure to give your Persian 'Bearss' tree a deep watering for about 5 minutes. Mulching around the tree will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the colder winter months as well.

Planting Instructions (potted): If your winter temperatures are consistently below 40 degrees, plant your tree in a container that can easily be brought outside in the summer months and inside in the winter. A planter with built-in casters is a good choice so it can easily be moved. Choose a pot slightly larger than what it was shipped in that has plenty of holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Be sure to plant in well-draining potting soil preferably recommended for acid loving citrus plants.

1) Fill your pot halfway with soil. Remove the tree from it's original pot and gently place it in the potting soil.
2) Fill in around the tree with the remainder of the potting soil but be sure not to cover the grafted area of the tree. Leave about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.
3) Lightly pack down the soil. Immediately after planting, give your tree a deep watering until it flows from the holes in the bottom of the pot.
4) Place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight. Supplement with a grow light if it will not receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day. You may also need to create humidity for your tree by placing the pot on a saucer of pebbles or misting the leaves daily with water.

Watering: Persian 'Bearss's do not like wet feet. Be sure to give your tree a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2-3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Yellowing and droopy leaves is a common sign of overwatering while brown, dry leaves are a sign of under watering. Mulching can help retain the soil moisture and also combat competing grasses/weeds.

For potted Persian 'Bearss's, stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels more dry at that depth. When ready to water, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Pollination assistance: You can pollinate your indoor trees by hand since most people do not keep a healthy bee population within their home. Simply take a small, dry, fine tipped paint brush and stick it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated. Do this once daily and don’t wash the paintbrush until after the blooms have been pollinated. The bloom will fall of naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

Fertilization: Feed your Persian 'Bearss' tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer once every six weeks. Espoma Citrus Tone is highly recommended but any organic fertilizer specifically for citrus should suffice. This will help keep your tree on a healthy growth cycle but also replenish the nutrients in the soil. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2-3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit and has got a few years on it, you can skip the cold season fertilization. The same fertilizing regimen should be followed for potted Persian 'Bearss' trees as well. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.

Pruning: Pruning can be done at any time of the year for in ground planted Persian 'Bearss's except in the winter. Make 45-degree angle cuts to remove dead or crossing limbs and also to thin out the tree to allow more light to flow between the branches. “Leggy” looking branches may indicate that there is not enough light getting to the tree’s interior. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree. Remove suckers as they form/grow from the base as they will steal away nutrients from the primary trunk of the tree. Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted Persian 'Bearss'.

Leroy B on Feb 15, 2017

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.
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.
