Botanical: Lime

Lime TimeThe fruit known as the lime is hardly as simple as it might suggest. The name has been used to refer to a range of fruits as diverse as the Australian Finger Lime, the Persian Lime, Key Lime, Kaffir Lime, Rangpur Lime, Sweet Lime and so on….

While we should acknowledge the word refers to a range of species that may not even be botanically related, the one which is generally bought around the world as a lime is the Persian Lime, which is probably the result of a cross between the aforementioned Key Lime and the lemon.
