It’s that time of year again, when the citrus around here are ripening and turning sweet! Citrus requires cold weather to turn sweet – the fruit has been set on the tree for several months. This year we’ll likely have another bumper crop of limes – there are at least three times that many still on the (not that large) tree!
These are Mexican or Key limes – same/similar variety, just not grown on Key West. They’re yellow when ripe, but green on the inside. Delicious!
