This may not look like a lime, with yellow flesh and citrus, but this is in fact a sweet lime. What are sweet limes? According to yumsugar.com:
Generally, limes are picked while they’re still green, but they actually turn yellowish in color when completely mature. Likewise, green sweet limes, while unoffensive, have yet to reach their full sweetness. Rather than having a high amount of sugar, the fruit contains less acid than ordinary limes, causing it to taste sweeter. Although the fruit’s pale yellow flesh is praised for its mildness and palatability, some have described the fruit’s taste as insipid due to its complete lack of tartness.
A few ways to use sweet limes:
- Make sweet limeade, or add some to your ice water for a refreshing aroma.
- Use the fruit’s juice to make sweet lime-flavored granita.
- Incorporate the fragrant peel into in a homemade marmalade.
- Toss into a Winter fruit salad for an unusual bite.
- Tone down your cocktails by using in place of sour limes.
