Lime

Citrus aurantiifolia

Famous for adding a tropical taste to pies, margaritas, and other tasty foods, limes produce flavor-packed green fruits on a small, thorny, evergreen tree. The flowers are lightly fragrant compared to other citrus, but still add ambiance to the landscape in spring when the trees bloom. Limes grows best in a sunny spot with sandy or well-drained soil with a regular supply of moisture.

Gardeners can grow dwarf varieties indoors in cold-weather climates. As houseplants, limes like a very bright spot protected from hot or cold drafts. Allow the soil to dry somewhat between watering.

Kaffir lime
Citrus hystrix is a different species from most limes. It bears small, light green, very bumpy fruits with an intensely aromatic rind. While the fruits can be used for citrus zest or juice, the primary reason for growing Kaffir lime is its leaves, which are used in Asian cooking.
