Known as ‘the lemon of South America’, limes are small green-yellow fruit with sour, acidic pulp, generally smaller and less sour than lemons.
The top-five lime producing countries are India, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil and Spain. A staple of Mexican, Thai and Vietnamese cooking and typical of Persian, Iraqi and Indian cuisine, limes are used for both the acidity of the juice and floral aroma of the rind. Ceviche (the cooking of raw fish in lime juice), lime pickle, marmalade and sorbet are all popular uses.
Many classic cocktails such as Gin and Tonic, Caipirinha, Margarita, Mojito and Cuba Libre have the tart, aromatic flavour of lime.
