Limes

Limes are a hybrid citrus fruit and when compared to lemons, they are smaller and tart with a hint of sweetness. Limes are a common ingredient in Mexican, Caribbean, Thai, and Vietnamese dishes and add a nice flavor to food and drinks. They are also often used as a garnishment. There are a variety of species of limes that go by the name “lime” including Key limes, Persian limes, and Desert limes. Crystal Valley offers Persian limes year-round from Mexico and Guatemala.
