Tahitian Lime

$1.00

This variety is a hybrid from the crossing of a lemon and a mandarin and can be eaten fresh from the tree. This creates a fruit that is very similar to a lemon in appearance with a yellow skin and a translucent yellow flesh. The taste is not similar to the lemon varieties and instead of bitterness, the flesh is sweet.

The flesh can also easily be segmented thanks to the mandarin percentage of the fruit.

The longer the fruit is left on the tree to mature the sweeter it becomes. The tree produces heavily an often has thorns.
