Smaller, rounder and more fragrant than their more traditional relative, the Persian lime, the Key Lime is used in many tropical cuisines throughout the world. A squeeze of juice from a Melissa's Key Lime will enhance the flavor of many dishes including chicken and fish, as well as marinades, sauces and fruit salads and of course, they are the essential ingredient of the world-famous Key Lime Pie.

Melissa’s Key Limes are hand selected for excellent quality. Choose limes that are heavy for their size. Key Limes can be yellow with some green. Can be stored at room temperature for several days or will keep for a week or more if wrapped in plastic and refrigerated.

Rinse thoroughly. Roll on a flat surface while pressing firmly to release the juice. Lime slices make an attractive garnish for plates and on the rims of beverages.
