Origin

It is an ancient fruit, certified in the XVIIth century, described and appreciated by all specialists as a fruit with “an agreeable sour-sweet pulp” .Most likely a hybrid of the Rangpur lime and the SheekwaSHA mandarin (excellent small summer lime.

Flowering/fruiting

The juice has a remarkable sweet-sour taste with a slight hint of Japanese mandarin. As the fruit ripens, its acidity lessens. In comparison with other limes, this citrus has no spines and has a less vigorous growth which makes it a more compact plant. These small limes are used in Asia to flavour drinks (water, beer) and ice cream, on food or on other fruits. It's skin is wrinkled and when mature it is yellow.
