Desert Limes are a small fruit about the size of a grape with a wonderful “limey” flavour
Australian Desert Lime or Wild limes have an intense lime flavour without the tart edge that traditional limes have, I can eat them quiet easily alone. Like all limes they are extremely versatile. There are a number of native limes that have been developed, the Desert Lime being one of them.
Wild Limes were used as a food source by Indigenous people, the easy pioneers to Australia harvested them for use in jams and preserves and they are now an extremely popular lime on many restaurant menus.
