Tahitian Lime

Lime 'Bearss'

A vigorous, nearly thornless, evergreen citrus tree that produces bright green to yellow-tinged fruits. Fragrant white blossoms peek out from in between dark green foliage during early spring, giving way to large, seedless, flavorful limes. The main crop is ready for harvest during winter and late spring, however some fruits may ripen year-round. Needs protection from hard frost, making this an excellent patio tree or large indoor specimen in colder regions.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
