HISTORY

It is very likely that the lime comes from somewhere between India and Malaysia. The lime was imported in France and in Italy by the Crusaders in the 13th century. There are some historical evidences that Christopher Columbus brought the seeds of lime during his second voyage to the New World in 1493 .

ORIGIN
The fruits are cultivated in Mexico, Brazil and Central America, United States, India and Spain.

PLANT
The lime is a thorny evergreen tree that can reach 3-5 meters in height. It continuously blooms, and yields a lot of fruits throughout the year. Its small fragrant flowers are white with red nuances.

DRINK
The lime is the smallest denomination known of lemons and is full of juice (45% compared to 25% of the lemons.) The taste is more or less acid, depending on the variety, and is distinguished by its delicate and unequalled aroma. It's used in fruit salads, cocktails, sorbets, with white meat, fish, shellfish and seafood. Its use, instead of lemon, adds an exotic touch to your dishes. It should be kept at a temperature of 11° C.
