Lime: Exploring the Citrus World

Lime, a citrus fruit that shares similarities with lemons but stands out due to its smaller size and generally thinner green skin.

Notable ones include Persian lime, known as Tahiti lime, of medium size and bright green skin; Key lime, smaller and round with yellow and green skin, featuring an intense and acidic flavor; Kaffir lime, originating from Southeast Asia, recognized for its thick and rough skin, and a distinctive lemony aroma; and Colima lime, a Mexican variety with a small size and a sweet and acidic taste.
