Limes / Lima, Kg

SKU: 024
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The little sister of the lemon has many uses in the kitchen. The color is almost always green because the fruits are in peak season in late summer. Only at the end of the season do they turn yellow as the temperatures get colder.
Limes have a green-yellow, thin peel and are quite small with a diameter of 4-6 cm. The fruits are egg-shaped to round. The flesh of the sour lime is pale green and has an aromatic, fruity-sour taste and is usually juicier than that of the lemon. Kernels are rarely found.

Here you buy directly from the farmer.
We are one of the few producers who actually own and work their own citrus plantation!
From planting and caring for the trees, to harvesting the fruit, to shipping the fruit directly to your home.
What can you look forward to:
You get freshly harvested, natural limes. If you order here in the shop today, the fruit will still be hanging on our trees. The fruits are only harvested for your order.

❤️What we care about❤️
To be clear again: our natural fruits that we send to you are generally not available at this level of ripeness, without ethylene fumigation and without toxic anti-mold immersion baths. And for a good reason:
As a producer, we lose a significant portion of our production due to late harvesting. One or the other fruit may not be able to “make it” during transport, and in your case the fine line between ripe fruit and natural decay becomes visible.
However, the taste is convincing!
Be clear. You order natural fruits, not industrial goods. We do not fight the natural coexistence that should exist in an ecosystem. With us you will not find a monoplantation, but a large "garden" in harmony with nature. An oasis for people and animals. It is therefore important to store the fruit well, cool (1-6°C refrigerator) and dry.
You will really taste the love we put into growing our fruits. ❤
💡 Tip

In unpreserved limes, the fruit shrinks because the peel is quite thin. Best stored in the refrigerator.

Recipe: Caipirinha
6 cl cachaca (sugar cane liquor)
4 teaspoons cane sugar or white sugar, as originally used in Brazil.
1 lime
Crashed ice cream

Cut the washed lime into eights with the peel, place in a sturdy glass, sprinkle the sugar over it and mash well with a wooden pestle.
Fill the glass with crushed ice, add the cachaca, stir vigorously and add two straws to the glass.
