Bearss Lime Tree
Ornamental Fruit Bearing Tree
The Bearss Lime is an ornamental, fruit bearing tree. One would look charming as a small specimen tree in a sunny spot of your yard, or use one as a patio plant to move indoors in colder weather.
Your Bearss Lime tree is an evergreen, dwarf variety growing about 10 feet tall, with an equal spread. Its deep green foliage is a perfect accent for the fragrant, white flowers that will grace your branches in the spring. That foliage is also a beautiful backdrop for the fruit as the bright green rind attains a gentle yellow blush at maturity.
Your tree is a fast grower and will easily adapt to whatever shape you chose for it with some gentle pruning. It has a dense, rounded crown and its evergreen nature will present a handsome silhouette for your landscape year round.
The most impressive feature of your Bearss Lime is of course the fruit it produces. The Bearss Lime is high-producing tree, with the heaviest production during winter and early spring (in warmer regions).
Its limes have a smooth rind with green, juicy flesh. They have a long shelf life and are prized for their uses in a large variety of drinks and culinary dishes. Some people even use the leaves for culinary and decorative purposes as well.
The Bearss Lime tree is perfect choice for an indoor/outdoor lime tree with high production and excellent fruit.
Grow Them Anywhere!
If you live in a colder climate, simply plant them in a container. Bring your tree indoors near a sunny window, and let the intoxicating citrus scent brighten your home during cold winter days.
