Limes

Lime belongs to the family Rutaceae and is widely grown in tropical and subtropical areas for their edible acidic fruits. The Persian lime (Citrus ×latifolia) is the most common commercial varieties, although the smaller lime or Mexican lime equally important in many places.

Lime is a key ingredient in certain pickles and chutneys. Sometimes they are used to flavour drinks, food and confections. Limeade and other lime-flavoured drinks have a flavour and bear a distinction from those made from lemons.

The tree often grows more than 5 metres (16 feet) high and if they are not pruned can become shrublike. Its branches spread wide and are irregular. It bears short stiff twigs, small leaves and many small sharp thorns.
