Scientific name Citrus hystrix
Lime belongs to the citrus family. Lime is a nickname for several species of citrus fruits or their hybrids. The origin of the tree is mainly from India, Thailand and the Philippines. At the end of the 20th century, lime plantations began to be planted in Israel. The color of the fruit is dark green to yellow, its diameter ranges from three to six centimeters. The fruit is fleshy, and sour. It tastes like lemon, but the lime species are usually smaller than lemon, and more sour. The tree blooms twice a year and even more, and its fruits ripen about two to three months after flowering and especially in late winter and late spring.
