Citrus x latifolia 'Bearss'
Bearss Lime or otherwise known as Persian Lime is typically the larger of the limes you will see available at farmers markets and shopping centers from Southern California through the rest of the United States. These limes are said to have originated in Thermal, CA in 1977 as budwood and have since been grown and harvest for decades. These larger limes have many uses from grlling, garnishing, baking, soups, cocktails and juicing just to name a few. These trees are easy to grow and offer more landscape uses than just for fruit alone. Grown from Coastal Southern California throughout the Southwest Deserts of Arizona these trees can be used as a focal point with their attractive foliage and fragrant blooms, planted in rows to provide thick privacy and security or even planted in pots on patios making these perfect for any size back yard.
Pro Tip: Limes you buy at the store are often picked before they are ready. Let you limes mature on the tree for best flavor!

Rootstock for citrus trees is extremely important as they can be grafted with nearly anything and many growers will use inferior rootstocks so the trees will grow faster.

Our little Bearss lime tree is fruiting its little heart out!We purchased our Bearss lime tree from Moon Valley only a couple of months ago and planted it ourselves. It was small enough to fit in our SUV (about 3-4' tall). Since then, we have fertilized and watered and now, 2 months later, it has about 60 tiny limes on it and every day we see new blossoms. The little thing will probably fall to the ground supporting so many limes!
