The Meyer Lemon and Persian 'Bearss’ Lime trees are the essential citrus varieties for every gardener! Perfect for sweet or savory culinary creations from desserts, beverages, cocktails, soups, curry, and more.

    The improved Meyer Lemon is packed with flavor. Sweet and tangy, the Meyer Lemon is a hybrid between a sour lemon and a sweet orange. The flavor is truly unique and the fruit is incredibly juicy. Simply said, the Meyer lemons taste sweeter than regular lemons. Meyer lemons have less acidity, a complex flavoring, and a thin, smooth yellow skin. Meyer Lemon is an evergreen, everbearing tree that produces an abundance of lemons. The fragrance of the white, star-shaped flowers stir the senses. A Meyer Lemon tree reaches a mature height of 8-15 ft. tall.

    Bursting with flavor, the Persian ‘Bearss’ Lime is the most common lime sold in grocery stores. The seedless fruit is juicy, acidic, and loaded with strong fresh lime flavor. Fragrant blossoms and foliage perfume the air. Bearss Lime is an evergreen tree that can produce heavy crops of limes. In cooler climates of California, the green peel turns yellow when ripe. The mature height of a Persian ‘Bearss’ Lime tree is 10-20 ft. tall.

    Both the Meyer Lemon tree and Persian ‘Bearss’ Lime tree are easy to grow in the garden, patio, balcony, or even indoors as long as it has a minimum of 8 hours of direct sun and the soil is moist and aerated. Prune to maintain a desired size. This Lemon & Lime 2-pack is the perfect gift. Order California’s favorite lime and lemon tree from Plants Express today and have them delivered to your home.

    Plant Care

    Plant your citrus trees in a location that is wind-free, frost-free, and will receive at least 8 hours of full sun in a well draining soil that is porous and aerated.  You may need to add soil amendments like Gardner & Bloome Organics Planting Mix Premium Garden Soil or Kellogg Garden Organics Gromulch 2-in-1 Planting Mix & Mulch to improve drainage if your soil is a heavy clay. Protect your citrus trees from frost with the use of frost cloth when temperatures drop below 32F.

    Water your Meyer Lemon and Persian 'Bearss' Lime regularly and consistently the first year to develop deep roots. As the roots become established in the ground you may reduce the frequency.  Avoid standing water and keep away from shallow frequent watering. In the ground, citrus prefer deep watering less frequently. Many factors determine how often to water such as temperature, soil porosity, wind, and tree size. Fertilize with Gardner & Bloome 8-4-2 Organic Citrus & Fruit Tree Fertilizer in spring.

    The mature height and fruit production of your citrus trees will depend on several environmental factors such as climate, light, soil type, texture, fertility and moisture, and pruning practices. Your citrus trees can easily be maintained at a smaller size with annual pruning.

    FAQ's

    Q: Can a Meyer Lemon Tree Grow in a pot?
    A: Yes, a Meyer lemon tree can grow in a pot. In fact, container gardening is a popular way to grow citrus trees, including Meyer lemons. However, it's important to note that a Meyer lemon tree in a pot may need more regular watering and fertilizing than a tree planted in the ground. Additionally, the pot should be large enough to accommodate the tree as it grows, and should have drainage holes to prevent water from pooling at the bottom.

    Q: When does the Meyer Lemon Tree produce fruit?
    A: The tree typically blooms in the late winter or early spring and produces fruit throughout the year, with peak production occurring in the spring and fall. However, it's important to note that the tree may not produce fruit if it doesn't receive enough sunlight, water, or nutrients, or if it's not properly pollinated.


    Q: Why are the leaves on my Meyer Lemon Tree turning yellow? 
    A: There are a few reasons why Meyer lemon tree leaves may turn yellow:
    Overwatering or underwatering: If the tree is overwatered or underwatered, the roots may not be able to absorb enough water and nutrients, causing the leaves to turn yellow.  Nutrient deficiencies: If the tree is not getting enough nitrogen, iron, or other essential nutrients, the leaves may turn yellow. Pests such as citrus leaf miner or diseases such as citrus greening can cause the leaves to turn yellow. Sunburn: If the tree is exposed to too much direct sunlight, the leaves can become sunburned and turn yellow. Cold Damage: Protect from cold temperatures below 32 ℉. If the tree is exposed to temperatures lower than its tolerance, the tree may shed leaves or the leaves may turn yellow.


    Q: Do Meyer Lemon Trees lose their leaves in the winter?
    A: Meyer lemon trees are evergreen and generally do not lose their leaves in the winter. However, they may shed some leaves during periods of drought, or if they are exposed to subfreezing temperatures or frost. 

    Q: How hardy is the Bearss Lime Tree?
    A: Bearss Lime Tree is hardy to 32℉.  Frost cloth may help protect your lemon tree if temperatures should fall below freezing.

    Q: When is the best time to harvest Bearss limes?
    A: In California, the Persian ‘Bearss’ Lime typically ripens in fall-winter.

    Q: Do I need another lime tree to pollinate my Persian ‘Bearss’ Lime?
    A: No, your Bearss Lime is self fertile and does not require cross pollination.

    Q: Why is my Bearss lime rind yellow and not green?
    A: In warmer tropical climates the fruit remains green, but in cooler climates of California the Bearss lime will turn yellow when ripe.
