Hybridized in 1895 by John Bearss, Persian Lime has several strong benefits: seedless fruit, thornless plants and mild lime flavor. The fruit is larger with a thicker skin than Key Lime so it keeps longer. Persian Lime is similar to Meyer Lemon in its growth habit. It's vigorous and easily grown plus it flowers and fruits year-round.

Pays for itself many times over, good investment for citrus lovers. Review by Woodsy
How do you rate this product?
I bought this from Logee's over 20 years ago and still enjoy large annual harvests of the best limes! One January a few years ago my
lime tree produced over three dozen limes; so much so that I made lime marmalade and froze a pint of left-over juice besides. One
word of advice, this tree will quickly top three feet in height if not pruned faithfully. I struggle to keep mine at just under four feet high
and wide. My lime spends summers here in Ohio on a south-facing porch and winters by a low south-facing window. With the price
of citrus it really pays to keep at least one culinary citrus tree if you have the room and lighting. When it is time to repot your tree,
make sure to prune any roots that are starting to circle the root ball. Expect to get limes twice the size of the store bought ones! (Posted on 9/29/2015)
