Buy lime 'Bearss' lime: Near seedless green-skinned fruits

  • Position: a sunny patio outside, or bright conservatory in winter
  • Soil: moist but well-drained soil. John Innes No2 compost should be used when potting up
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to September
  • Hardiness: tender (needs winter protection)

    This popular lime was said to have originated in 1895 as a seedling of a Tahitian (or Persian) lime, which are said to be slightly hardier than their Mexican couterparts. The juicy, ripe fruits are greenish-yellow, and have a finely-textured flesh with an acidic flavour. They are also often seedless.

    This is supplied as a a half standard, with a 1m high clear stem topped with crown of foliage. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that any plant will be sent out with developing fruit.

  • Garden care: Ideally grow in a pot which is easily moved from terrace to conservatory, in soil-based compost. Feed every two weeks with a special citrus fertiliser (there is one for summer and another for winter), and pot on or top-dress plants in late winter. Move outside after the risk of frost has passed to a sunny, sheltered patio.
