Persian Lime

Persian Lime also known as seedless lime, Bearss lime, and Tahiti lime, is a citrus fruit species of hybrid origin, known only in cultivation.

The Persian lime is most likely from a cross between key lime (Citrus aurantiifolia) and lemon (Citrus × limon).

Although there are other citrus species that are referred to as limes, C. × latifolia is the most widely cultivated lime species for commercial use, and accounts for the largest share of the fruits sold as limes.

GreenPoint’s Persian Limes take 480 acres out of cultivation and are commercialized from September to August.
