The Bearss Lime, also known as the Persian Lime or Tahiti Lime (Citrus latifolia), is a widely cultivated citrus fruit known for its seedless fruit and robust flavor. It originated in Southeast Asia and has become a popular variety in many parts of the world for both commercial and home cultivation.

In cultivation, Bearss Lime trees typically grow to about 15 to 20 feet in height and spread 10 to 15 feet. They have a spreading and open growth habit, with glossy, dark green leaves. The tree produces white, fragrant flowers, which are followed by the development of the fruit.

The fruit of the Bearss Lime is larger than that of the Mexican or Key lime, typically bright green and turning yellow when fully ripe. The limes are seedless, making them particularly convenient for culinary use. They have a tart and acidic flavor, similar to that of the Key lime, but are less intense. The skin is smooth and relatively thin, and the interior is juicy.

Bearss Limes thrive in full sun and prefer well-draining soil. They are more cold-tolerant than Key limes but still require protection from frost in cooler climates. Regular watering is important, but care should be taken to avoid overwatering, as citrus trees are susceptible to root rot.

In landscaping, Bearss Lime trees are often used in home orchards and gardens for their fruit production. They are also suitable for container planting, making them a good choice for patios and smaller garden spaces. In addition to their practical use for fruit, these trees are valued for their ornamental qualities and fragrant flowers.

Overall, the Bearss Lime tree is an excellent choice for those interested in growing citrus, offering a combination of ease of cultivation, delicious fruit, and ornamental appeal. Its seedless limes and adaptability to various growing conditions make it a favored choice among gardeners and citrus enthusiasts.
