Mexican Key Lime
Most Useful Lime Ever!
Key Lime. West Indian Lime. Bartender’s Lime. This lime is used for so many things that everyone has their own name for it! Mexican Key Lime is used in the kitchen, behind the bar, in the spa and in the bakery. You can use the skin for zest, the juice for pies and the leaves for their aromatic qualities.
The moderately sized bushy trees are almost shrub-like and blend into the landscape beautifully. The flowers are pure white and perfume the air with a distinct citrus scent. The leaves release a marvelous lime scent when crushed.
The fruit is small, but mighty. They only grow about 1 ½ inches in diameter, but pack a wallop with their big taste. The skin and the flesh are a yellowy-green, which is why a true key lime pie is yellow, not green.
If you live in a place that is citrus friendly, Mexican Key Lime should definitely have a place of pride in your garden.
You will have a huge abundance of fruit to keep and to share. Order yours today!
