The World's Most Versatile Lime
Why Persian Lime Trees?
With the Persian Bearss, you get distinct flavor, delicious, seedless fruit, and a great patio plant that will produce indoors. So, no matter your climate, you’ll have large limes the size of lemons and a hardy tree that's drought tolerant and pest resistant, indoors or out.
Also known as the Tahiti Lime or Bearss Lime, the Persian Lime is the most popular lime around…and for good reason. 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. Its full size practically weighs down the branches, giving you a lime that's simply unbeatable.
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!

Came in great condition
Came in great conditions good root system.
It came well packaged and within 2 days. I was hoping it would come with limes already on it but it did not. It is still very healthy and I’ve had it for at least a month.
So far, so good. It is growing with more branches.
Good but no limes yet, only had it for a month.
Persian Bearss lime tree
Good experience, the Two trees arrived Undamaged in good shape had no problems the trees look okay. Now they need to grow.
Wonderful fruit from this Tree
I ordered this lemon along with a lemon tree as well. I am impressed by their yield, but less so with their appearance. Of four trees I have had from this website in the past year, I would say this is the only one that had a full and attractive shape. Even this one, however, does not seem to be well-pruned with several cross branches. I would order the tree again as the fruit has been lovely and abundant--it is in its second flower in the year we've had it with 30+ limes the first time around.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight...6 to 8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade but thrive in full sun.
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.
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.
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 full sun.
2. Watering: Be sure to give your tree a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again.
When ready to water your potted Persian Lime, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.
3. Fertilizing: 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. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2 to 3 months, and make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.
4. Pollination: You can pollinate your indoor trees by hand - simply take a small, dry, fine-tipped paintbrush 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.
5. Pruning: Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted Persian 'Bearss'.
