Desert Lime

desert lime treeThe Australian Desert Lime (Citrus glauca) is small with an intense, piquant flavour.

An extremely versatile fruit they can be used in any product or process where ‘normal’ limes or lemons are used, the main difference being their small size, lack of peel and more intense flavour.

Desert limes require no peeling or preparation. They have the valuable attribute of freezing down without losing flavour or presentation characteristics when thawed later for use.

The fruit has been analysed as a very healthy food source, having three times the amount of Vitamin C compared to oranges.

They have been enjoyed by generations of Australian outback people to make cordials, sauces, garnishes marmalades, pickles and chutneys.

Thirsty stockmen eat the fruit straight from the trees while mustering as a thirst quencher.
