Bearss limes, botanically classified as Citrus × latifolia, are also known as Tahitian limes or Persian limes are the most common limes in American gardens. This small, green fruit gradually turns light green then yellow at full maturity. With a thin, smooth rind, Bearss limes are very juicy and acidic with excellent flavor and few to no seeds. The fruit can be picked from green to yellow, but doesn't hold for long after turning yellow.

STORING FRUIT: We defer to the experts at the University of California Davis when we recommend storing all of our fruit at room temperature (around 70 degrees Fahrenheit) because refrigerator temperatures (usually 38-42 degrees) can damage them and/or prevent them from ripening to their best flavor and texture. Place produce in an open bowl or on a countertop out of direct sunlight to prevent produce from becoming too warm. Once cut or prepared, all fruits should be refrigerated promptly. Obviously, use all fruits and herbs within a few days since longer storage can result in loss of freshness and flavor.
