Sweet lime or mosambi is lime-like, large sized with an underlying yellow base. The intense, refreshing aroma is due to essential oils present in the skin. It generally tastes sweet, occasionally tart to sweet.
Store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. No pulpy orange canned juice can match the fresh taste of sweet lime juices. Bursting with freshly picked juiciness, these are perfect to serve to kids. Mojitos, mixed mint drinks and fruit punches taste delicious with the addition of sweet lime.
Mosambis are a good source of vitamin C and potassium and its high water content is known for its cooling properties. They lower cholesterol and control blood sugar level. They also prevent constipation. Mosambi peels are highly nutritious, fiber-rich and edible, which are good for skin and nails.
