Persian Seedless Limes

Persian lime is a citrus fruit sold simply as a “lime” in the United States. The fruit is about 6 cm in diameter, often with slightly pointed ends, and is usually sold quite green, although it yellows as it reaches full ripeness. It is larger, thicker-skinned, and less aromatic than the key lime. They are less acidic than key limes and don’t have the bitterness that lends to the key lime’s unique flavor.
