The Bearss Lemon tree variety originated as a seedling discovered in the Bearss citrus grove near Lutz, Florida in 1952. Bearss Lemon trees are fast-growing and produce very few thorns compared to other lemons. The fruit is juicy with a sharp tartness valued for use in beverages, desserts, and other dishes. Bearss Lemons are also known to have fewer seeds and more juice than other lemons of the same size.

Bearss Lemon trees are hardy in USDA zones 9-11 and can be grown in a container and moved indoors for winter in colder climates.

How are Bearss Lemons different from other lemons?

The Bearss Lemon is what is known as a True Lemon (a variety of acidic juice citrus fruit). The Bearss Lemon has more juice than some lemons of the same size and is more tart than the sweeter Meyer Lemon. Bearss Lemons are also valued for the high concentration of lemon oil present in their skins.

Is it true that a Bearss Lemon Tree has no thorns?

Bearss Lemon Trees have far fewer thorns than other lemon varieties. However, mature trees can still display some smaller thorns on new growth, and infrequent formidable thorns on older branches. Therefore, it is still recommended that you use gloves and caution when harvesting or pruning this lemon tree.

Will a Bearss Lemon Tree that is grown in a pot still produce fruit?

Yes. A container-grown Bearss Lemon will stay smaller than its in-ground counterpart, but the tree will still produce lemons. In fact, since lemons are smaller than some other citrus fruits, they are great trees for growing in a pot. Be sure the container is of adequate size, and that your tree gets ample sunlight, water, fertilizer, and drainage.

What time of year can I expect to harvest lemons from my Bearss Lemon Tree?

You can harvest your Bearss Lemons as soon as the fruit begins to shift in color from deep green to yellow-green, and as the fruit turns progressively more yellow. This occurs between late summer through winter. In most cases, Bearss Lemons are mature and ready to harvest from August through December.
