Persian Lime has been planted 2 times by Growstuff members.

The Persian, or Tahiti, Lime is only found in cultivation and believed to be a cross between the Key Lime (Citrus aurantiifolia) and Lemon (Citrus × limon). It is the most widely cultivated lime for commercial use. The trees have few thorns and produce mostly seedless fruit about 6cm in diameter that are harvested while still green and slightly underripe. Fruit is fully yellow when ripe. The Persian Lime has a thicker skin and is larger than the Key Lime. It also lacks the Key Lime's distinctive bitter taste aspect. It is slightly more cold hardy than the Key Lime. Leaves and trunk are damaged by temperatures at or below -3° C, and temperatures below -4° C will kill the tree.
