Persian limes are often referred to as Tahiti limes. This variety has unknown origins but is suspected to be a hybrid of the Mexican lime and citron, a huge, yellow-green, lumpy lemon. Botanists consider this variety used to be introduced to the Mediterranean area via Persia (now referred to as Iran). It used to be carried to Brazil by Portuguese traders, and eventually made it to California in the latter half of the 1800s. Today, Florida is the largest grower of Persian limes, producing 90 percent of the U.S. crop, most of which is used for making fresh juice and canned or frozen juice concentrate. The Persian lime tree produces thicker-skinned fruit larger than the Key lime which assists in keeping longer. These good traits make it a preferable commercial crop. The fruit is oval-shaped, about the same size as a lemon, with a vivid green peel which turns yellow when ripe. The Persian lime is the variety most commonly found in grocery stores. It is regularly seedless, and has light-green to yellow pulp which is tender and acidic, yet lacking the distinctive bouquet of the Key lime. It may be used interchangably for a similar purposes as Key limes and lemons, and is ceaselessly used as a substitute for vinegar. Lime juice can be utilized to clean lime deposits from the interiors of coffee pots and tea kettles. Homeopathically, lime juice has also been used effectively to relieve the effects of stinging coral. Size shipped: Growing in 8″ pot, about 12-14″ tall. Fruiting size.
