Tahitian Limes (Citrus aurantifolia) picked daily from our food forests. Fresh, juicy and delicious. The Tahitian lime is round in shape, seedless, juicy and extremely acidic.
Limes are prized for the flavour of their juice and zest, which can be added to a huge variety of cooked dishes, fresh foods, desserts, and drinks. As well as adding its own unique taste, lime juice brings out the natural flavours of other foods.
Limes contain limonin, a powerful anti-carcinogen. Once picked, limes become yellower and juicier. They are more fragrant and acidic than lemons. Limes contain zero fat.
Their unique phytonutrient properties have strong antioxidant and antibiotic effects. Limes have a stronger scent than lemons and a tangy acidic flavour.
Store limes at room temperature and away from direct sunlight, as exposure to light, causes the skin to turn yellow and alter the fruit’s natural flavour. They can also be stored in the fridge, where they will keep for up to 14 days.
