Bearss Lime  
A Tahitian lime that is slightly smaller but very similar to the Tahitian Persian lime. It is greenish yellow when ripe but is harvested to be sold when it is still green because the acidity level is higher, which provides a better flavor. It is oval in shape and seedless. Tahitian limes have a fairly thin rind and their flesh is pale green and juicy. In the United States, the majority of Bearss limes are grown in California.
