To purchase these, please visit Tropic of Canada

This well-known variety was named by T.J. Bears, who found it growing in his California nursery around 1895 (which still doesn't explain the double S!). It is the best lime for container growing and has large, nearly seedless, and very refreshing fruit almost the size of lemons. Limes are usually harvested before they are ripe, because consumers expect them to be green in colour. They will actually turn yellow when totally ripe. Bearss Lime can produce some fruit year round, but mostly in late winter and early spring. (Citrus latfolia)

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
