Description: The colour varies from dark green when immature to a yellowish green when ripe. All green lime types turn fully yellow when mature and soon thereafter drop from the tree. To avoid confusion with Lemons, Limes are collected when still green. The Mexican lime is at its juiciest and best medium ripe, when still partly green. If it is allowed to mature on the tree it loses some of its typical flavour and becomes less juicy. This is the Key lime of food recipes. Both the juice and the rind oil of Mexican lime have an inimitable and unique lime flavour.

Description: C. Limetta. Fruits are oval and green, ripening to yellow, with greenish pulp. The pith is white and about 5mm (0.20") thick. Despite the name sweet lime, the fruit is more similar to a greenish orange in appearance. As the name sweet lime suggests, the flavour is sweet and mild, but retains the essence of lime. The lime's taste changes rapidly in contact with air, and will turn bitter in a few minutes, but if drunk soon after being juiced, the taste is sweet. The flavour is a bit flatter than most citrus due to its lack of acidity. It can be compared to limeade and pomelo.

Description: Introduced in 1922. Because this fruit has such a thin peel, it is clipped from the tree rather than pulled. The glossy smooth rind clings to the pulp, but is still easily peeled when fresh. The tender flesh has twelve orange-coloured segments with numerous seeds, but there is an abundance of reddish-orange juice with a mango-like sweetness. Also called Florida Honey. Medium late, holds average on tree. Medium vigour, upright with long willowy branches.

Description: Pixie is the result of an open pollination of Kincy (King X Dancy) that took place in 1927 and was eventually released in 1965. The tree is a vigorous upright grower. The fruit is usually globose to slightly oblate, and sometimes has a neck. The rind is yellow-orange with a slightly pebbled texture and is easy to peel. The flesh is seedless, orange coloured, and juicy. The flavour is mild and sweet. Pixie matures in late winter and holds exceptionally late on the tree; the fruit is known to hold well into summer.
