Limes

Limes closely resemble their relative, the lemon, except that they are green instead of yellow, and are slightly smaller. They are stronger in flavor, more concentrated, and more acidic than a lemon, though. Their pulp is light green, juicy and has an excellent acid-tart flavor. Average size is approximately 1 ½” in diameter, and the average weight of a lime is ½ – 1 ounce.

Names: Lima Dulce, Indian lime, and Palestine lime

Source: Dominican Republic

Handling: Limes are best eaten/juiced when they are fresh, but may also be refrigerated up to 7 days. 45-50°F. Keep cool and dry. Limes are commonly used in desserts, drinks, marinades, etc.

Varieties: Sweet, Bruce Limes and Pony Limes, Florida Keys Limes.
