Description

NEW!!. Rangpur Lime is a popular, very sour tangerine relative used as a lime. The Rangpur Common names for the this fruit include Rangpur in India, Canton lemon in South China, Hime lemon in Japan, Cravo lemon in Brazil, and mandarin-lime in the United States. The name lime in connection with this fruit is often misleading because there are very little similarities between the Rangpur and true limes. However, Rangpur's are highly acid and can be used as a substitute for commercial limes. The Rangpur is almost certainly of Indian origin. It was introduced into Florida in the late nineteeth century by Reasoner Brothers of Oneco, who obtained seed from northwestern India. The fruits are small, usually no more than 1.5 - 2 inches in diameter and bright orange when ripe. The flesh is juicy and incredibly sour. The flavor is excellent in cooking and using in drinks. We recommend this fruit for anyone who loves to cook and drink!! It also makes a highly decorative ornamental potted plant. Fruits ripen near Christmas time. The trees will only grow to 12 feet in the ground and 6 feet in containers. (Photo from: http://www.corse.inra.fr/images/u0110052.gif)
