Lime and Lemon Trees
|A Lime or a Lemon?|
The distinction between lime and lemons is not made in India and they go by the same name of Nimboo, just different varieties of the same fruit which in fact they are, both belonging to the genus citrus, family Rutaceae and order Sapindales. Lime are the greener varieties that contain less vitamin C but more vitamin A and the flavor is somewhat different as indeed it is with different varieties of this delightful fruit promoting relief, health and adding a touch of good taste to many a dish. Just a bit of its juice added to Mayonnaise sauce changes that to tartar sauce which is so much nicer with many foods such as fish.
