Sweet Limes taste exactly as the name implies; they have the delicate, floral flavor of limes but without the intense acidic pucker. This uniquely flavored citrus is a cross between Mexican limes and sweet lemons. It's loved around the world, especially in India, Mexico and Southeast Asia, where it is often peeled and eaten out of hand just like an orange or juiced for limeade, cocktails, dressings and marinades. Additionally, Sweet Limes are delicious cooked and made into chutneys, relishes and jam; they’re also a refreshing addition to salads and perfect for dessert recipes where more sweetness is desired.

Immature Sweet Limes start green, then ripen to a rich golden-yellow and exude an intense lime aroma. Ripen green limes at room temperature. Once yellow, store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
