A unique cross of a mandarin orange & a lemon!

We hope you’ve had your coffee and are sitting down because this is about to get pretty confusing!

The Rangpur Lime (Citrus limonia Osbeck ‘Rangpur’) isn’t like any lime you’ve ever seen. It actually isn’t a lime at all. This fruit from India is really a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. It glows a beautiful orange color – not green like a true lime - as it ripens and it acts like an orange in the way it peels and segments. It tastes extremely sour, though, more like a lemon than anything else, but it has a richly floral, honeysuckle aroma when you bring it to your lips. (The leaves are scented, too, and are often used in cooking like a kaffir lime.)

You can use this unique fruit like you would a lemon or a lime, though. Try it in place of Key Limes in that pie. Squeeze it into your favorite drink. Add flavor to fish, pork or international dishes. Each Rangpur Lime generously gives you 2 – 3 tablespoons of juice.

The trees are highly ornamental and the flowers are heavenly scented. Rangpur Lime is an awesome container plant on the patio or to bring some summer to the indoors in winter. They are self-pollinating and are very fruitful even when young, so you can expect fruit earlier than another citrus you might be growing now.

So, this lime isn’t a lime and isn’t green, - it’s really more of an orange-lemon - but whatever it is, you will absolutely want it in your home this year! Order yours today!

* White and purple highly scented flowers
* Perfect for small gardens and containers
* Self-pollinating
