Trademark lime-green fruit, dripping with citrus flavor will populate your tree season after season. Persian limes combine the savory blend of a key lime and a lemon, but without the seeds, bitterness or acidity.

Introducing the world's most Versatile Lime

A spicy fragrance unique among citrus, it's more tame than the key lime, but also more flavorful. And if you think key lime pie is a great dessert, just wait until try a Persian Lime pie.

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!

Whether you grow it outdoors or in, with all the benefits the Persian Lime tree has to offer, be sure to order yours today while they're still available.

Persian 'Bearss' Lime Tree Pollination

Persian 'Bearss' Lime Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Persian 'Bearss' Lime Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

So far so good. It arrived healthy and I followed the instructions about getting it in shade and then transplanted to a larger pot. It is healthy and looking great. Love it.

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.

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.

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 is the best time to plant in zone 8?
Chris on Sep 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is best to plant these in the spring or early fall.
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.
does this come in 24" boxes?
Becky O on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry but we do not carry anything that large.
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.
Why can't it be shipped to Texas?
Brenda on Oct 17, 2017
The lime tree has what looks like a white powdery substance on the leaves, do I need to spray it?
Rob J on May 6, 2017
