Persian Lime Tree
|AL, AR, AZ, CA, FL, GA, OR, TX
Imagine fresh-squeezed limes on a hot summer’s day. That’s what a Persian Lime Tree can offer - year-round! These aren’t your average limes, either. Both juicy and acidic, these seedless limes are even fresher than what you can find at the grocery store!
Even better is that you can grow your Persian Lime Tree on your patio or even indoors. This unfussy tree only reaches about eight feet tall, meaning that it’s manageable and amenable to pruning wherever you keep it. Can you picture the sweet citrus wafting through your home, even in the dead of winter?
If you live in a warmer place, the Persian Lime Tree also thrives outdoors. This drought- and pest-resistant tree needs very little maintenance - and can even fruit in the first year! If you miss a few waterings, your tree won’t be bothered in the least.
Even when your tree isn’t flowering or producing limes, it will still be a sweet spot in your home or landscaping. Its lush green leaves add a tropical feeling wherever it's planted - and even its blooms waft the scent of citrus you’re soon to enjoy!

What is a Persian Lime like?
This is the type of lime commonly sold at grocery stores. This seedless lime is juicy and acidic with a smooth rind.
Where can I keep my Persian Lime tree?
In warmer places, the Persian Lime Tree can be planted outside. In colder locales, it does well in containers where it can be moved inside near sunny windows in the fall and winter.
Ideally, your Persian Lime Tree would like to be planted or placed in a spot that receives six to eight hours every day. It doesn’t mind a bit of shade but doesn’t prefer it. If you are placing your tree inside, you may need to supplement waning sunlight with a lamp.
If you live in an area without humidity, you may also need to re-create the tree’s natural habitat by misting it daily with water. You can also put a tray of rocks filled with water under the tree to build more humidity.
If you want to pot your Persian Lime Tree, choose a well-draining container that’s larger than one in which it was shipped. Add potting soil recommended for citrus plants.
Persian Lime Trees should receive enough water to seep into the root system, enough that water seeps out the container’s drainage holes. Don’t overwater, though - only re-water when the top two to three inches of soil are dry.
In the spring and summer, fertilize your tree with a citrus-specific fertilizer every six weeks. In fall and winter, you will only need to fertilize every two to three months.
