General Lime Info

Limes are a small, oval, green citrus fruit with a diameter between 1 to 2 inches.

Short Term Lime Storage

Limes can be kept at room temperature where they will stay fresh for up to 1 week.

Store limes loosely in a plastic bag in the crisper section of the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Lime Long Term Storage

Place freshly squeezed lime juice in ice cube trays until frozen, then store cubes in plastic bags in the freezer to be used as needed.

Dried lime zest can be stored in a cool and dry place in an airtight glass container.

Lime Side Notes

Limes can either be sour or sweet (not readily available in the US). There are two general varieties of sour limes available, the Tahitian (includes Persian and Bearss) and the Key (used in pie).

Limes have many uses: wedge garnish and juice for drinks, juice in cooking fish, soups, marinades, and desserts.
