Product Abstract: Also known as Key Lime, Citrus aurantifolia is a small evergreen tree that produces a small, sour fruit very similar to Lemon, and like lemon, has a high content of citric acid, but typically less ascorbic acid. This Lime has a strong, sweet scent. Historically, limes were brought back to Europe by Columbus. They were used to prevent sailors from developing scurvy, which is how the British, a sea-faring nation, earned the nickname ‘Limey’.
