About Lime

Lime is the fruit of an evergreen tree that reaches six meters in height. The lime tree has many branches and leaves, and small, strong and sharp thorns can be seen at the junction of its leaves and stems.

Its leaves are often almond-shaped, sometimes oval-shaped, pointed and slightly elongated, and grow with very short petioles. There are very small teeth on the side of these leaves. On the petiole of the leaves, two very small appendages of its leaves can be seen.

The flowers are small and white and grow in groups. Each flower usually has five elongated petals, relatively narrow, almost pointed and completely separate from each other. The color of the back of the petals is usually purple, and sometimes pink spots and dots can be seen on their back.

Lime fruits are green. The flesh inside the ripe lemon is juicy and yellowish-green, and inside the pulps are almost wedge-shaped, semi-circular and crescent-shaped. These pulps are covered by very thin shells and grow in a contiguous, concentric and regular manner. Inside each pulp, there are a number of relatively large, drop-shaped, pointed, cream-colored seeds. Lime flesh has a pleasant aroma and a very sour taste.
