We prize our Kaffir Limes (Citrus hystrix) plants, also known as makrut lime (magrood lime). They are thorny bushes with aromatic and distinctive “double” or hourglass-shaped leaves.

The fruit is rough and green, and ripens to yellow and is distinguished by its bumpy exterior and its small size, about 2 inches in diameter. While the juice is not commonly used, the amazingly aromatic peel is a staple in Lao and Thai cuisine, an important ingredient in curries, adding an astringent flavor.

STORING FRUIT:
We defer to the experts at the University of California Davis when we recommend storing all of our fruit at room temperature (around 70 degrees fahrenheit) because refrigerator temperatures (usually 38-42 degrees) can damage them and/or prevent them from ripening to their best flavor and texture. Place produce in an open bowl or on a countertop out of direct sunlight to prevent produce from becoming too warm. Once cut or prepared, all fruits should be refrigerated promptly.

SHIPPING:
We hand pick to order and ship only on Mondays and Tuesdays to maintain optimal freshness. We ship Fedex ground or home delivery. Expedited shipping is available. A street address is required. We cannot ship to a post office box. If you have any questions or your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, please give us a call as soon as possible at (760) 723-9997.
