Lime

The word Lime conjures up all manner of gourmet delights, but the one that springs to mind first is the slice that is perched on the side of a salt-rimmed glass filled with crushed ice and Margaritas! The tequila and lime mix has to be the world’s best. 

The lime is rarely consumed on its own. Limes are second only to lemons in terms of importance as a flavouring agent for foods, drinks and other, non-edible, products for home and industrial use. The use of lime juice and lime zest to enhance the flavour of rice, potatoes, salads, and cooked vegetables will cut down the amount of salt you need to use, and eliminate the need for adding fat. Lime juice is excellent in marinades, beverages, salad dressings, guacamole, seafood and barbecue sauces, fish and meat stews, sorbets, jams, and let us not forget Key Lime pie.

Picture of Citrus Dble Lemon Meyer/Lime Tahitian

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

Here's something really special for the garden or a container. A Lemon and a Lime on the same tree - goodness gracious me! Meyer Lemon - very juicy reliable Lemon that crops exceptionally well. Tahitian Lime for aromatic, tangy, juicy Limes. Plant in a sunny well drained position. Evergreen.

All Citrus love being fed and watered regularly, especially if container grown. They respond quickly to a little pampering and will reward you for your efforts. When harvesting the fruit cut rather than pull off the tree. Your double graft Citrus will form a neat bushy tree.

Picture of Lime Kaffir

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

The essential Lime to use for culinary purposes as all parts of the 'Kaffir' are strongly aromatic especially the unusual 'double' leaves - these are a vital ingredient in Thai and Indonesian cuisine. The fruit are green, rough and 'warty' and not particularly juicy. Evergreen.

The word "Kaffir" is Arabic for infidel or what Muslims used to call unbelievers. How it became associated with a Lime tree I have yet to discover. However in this case it has no relation to its use as a derogatory term in some cultures.
