Bearss Seedless Lime is Citrus aurantiifolia `Bearss Seedless`, cutting grown and grafted on Troyer Citrange rootstock. Heavy bearer of juicy, lemon-sized fruit in winter to early spring. Grows into a densely branched, full rounded crown. Excellent container plant for patio or indoors in cold areas. Evergreen. Full to partial sun. Moderate-growing to 15 to 20 feet tall and wide. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Citrus trees are generally pest free but can develop populations of scale insects or aphids. The best defense is to keep the tree healthy and inspect it regularly for insect pests.
