Limes are sweeter than lemons and are a favourite to add to juice blends. Toss with cut fruit to prevent discolouration and add a zesty flavour to fruit salad. Excellent garnish.
Handling & Storage:
- Limes lose their vivid color and flavor as they age, so look for brightly colored, glossy-skinned fruit. Choose firm fruit that feels heavy — a sign they’re full of juice.
- Avoid limes that are very hard (unripe), and pass by those with soft spots, greenish skin or signs of shriveling.
- Store your limes in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
