lime

Probably an hybrid resulting from lemon and citron, the lime has spread from India and Malaysia also thanks to its use on British merchant ships as a remedy against scurvy.

Fruteiro’s variety of lime is the Citrus x latifolia, commonly called variety Tahiti, characterized, compared to other, by more oval and particularly tasty fruits.
Appreciated for its good content of vitamin C, lime is the ideal ingredient for sorbets and cocktails (including the classics, the Caipirinha and Mojito).
