Information on limes
Despatched through autumn and winter you may notice that some of the fruit on your lime tree is actually showing yellow or orange. Rest assured you have received a lime and not an orange or lemon tree.
All limes varieties and species will change from bright green to yellow and orange as they become more ripe.
The limes that are bought in supermarkets are picked very immature to both retain the acidity, firmness and green colour. The flavour will also change with age and the yellow/orange fruits will be significantly sweeter than those that are picked bright green. In addition, limes are usually sold as quite a small round fruit as they are far from fully grown. The ripe fruits are much larger.
Rest assured, if you wish to pick green fruits, you will be able to do so next year when the fruits are at an earlier stage of ripeness.
