The Dwarf Bearss Lime Tree first appeared in the U.S. back in 1895, in the grove of its namesake, T. J. Bearss. The lemon-sized fruit is seedless, mildly acidic, and an excellent source of vitamin C. Its skin, when ripe, is yellow-green in color.
Also known as Tahitian and Persian Lime, this hardy tree can produce a harvest as early as the first year when well cared for. Constantly flowering, fragrant, white blossoms; thick branches; and dark-green, glossy foliage make this dwarf variety an excellent container tree for your lanai. Sit back and enjoy a variety of bees, birds, and butterflies the Dwarf Bearss Lime Tree will attract.
Juice from the fruit of the Dward Bearss Lime Tree makes a flavorful addition to recipes that normally call for lemon juice.
