Semi-dwarf on Cunningham rootstock.

Zones: 10 (all other zones protect from freezing temperatures)

Fruit: Also known as Bartender’s Lime, Tahitian Lime, and Persian Lime. It is the most widely used lime because it is seedless, with great flavor.

Facts of note: Cold hardy, attractive tree produces an abundance of fruit. It is less thorny and more cold hardy than other limes. Developed by John T. Bearss in Potterville, California. Container adaptable and can be grown indoors.

Add a little zest to your garden! Citrus trees are potted, evergreen, semi-dwarf, 1 ½-years-old, pencil caliper, 18”-24” tall from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree. They will, with good care, produce fragrant, self-pollinating flowers and wonderful fruit. Height 8’–12’, but can be pruned to suit in ground or in containers. Choose a sunny location, in well drained soil, sheltered from wind. They are affected by below freezing temperatures, and in many locales require cold protection. Most tender to most hardy: Bearss Lime, lemons, orange, tangelo, grapefruit, mandarin, kumquat. Non-taxable. These are evergreen trees and thus the dormant bare root guarantee does not apply. Your trees will arrive in good, viable condition. Contact us immediately if they do not.
