Bearss Lime

Tree Sleeve
Item # 36493

Supplies Loads of Delicious Fruit Year-Round

Its crisp, clean flavor packs just the right punch for everything from drinks to chocolates.
This seedless lime is a favorite for cooks and bartenders, with its crisp, clean flavor, less acidic than Key limes, that packs just the right punch for everything from drinks to cakes, chocolates, and lemon curds.

This self-pollinating California native is a fast grower, supplying loads of delicious fruit year-round, most heavily in winter in California and other warm regions. Its fruit is green-skinned with green flesh, although the skin yellows somewhat as it matures. It also offers lush, deep green foliage and fragrant white flowers that bloom in early spring. Its larger fruit size (6 cm in diameter), hardiness, lack of seeds and thorns, and longer fruit shelf life, make this lime extremely popular on the commercial market. It takes well to being grown in containers, as long as it is brought indoors when temperatures drop below freezing, so it provides delicious ripe fruit even in cooler coastal areas. Zones 9-11 (or in containers in any zone).
