Sweet Lime

Arden | Oct 5, 2000 01:27 PM

Out of curiosity, I bought some sweet limes, and after trying them I'm even more curious. They look like a lime inside, but have thin yellowish skin. The smell and taste is unusual - almost floral and non-acidic.

I've done a bit of poking around but can't figure out what these are, botanically, or how they are used. (I used them like regular limes, and that was a big old mistake.) Anyway, my mystery fruit radar has been engaged. Can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks in advance,
A.
