  • Family: RUTACEAE

    The Key lime (Citrus aurantifolia) is a citrus species with a globose fruit, that is yellow when ripe but usually picked green commercially. It is smaller and seedier, with a higher acidity, a stronger aroma, and a thinner rind. It is valued for its unique flavor. It is a shrubby tree, to 5 m, with many thorns. Dwarf varieties exist which can be grown indoors during winter months and in colder climates. Its trunk rarely grows straight, with many branches, often originating quite far down on the trunk. The leaves are ovate, resembling orange leaves. The flowers are yellowish white with a light purple tinge on the margins. Flowers and fruit appear throughout the year, but are most abundant from May to September.
