Lime

The lime is a small, refreshing citrus fruit. The yellow-green flesh of the lime is less tart, and fresher, more fragrant and juicier than that of the lemon. Lime juice or zest gives dishes, drinks and sauces a fresh taste.

Lime is a wonderfully flavoursome ingredient in cooking. It gives dishes, drinks and sauces a fresh, zingy taste. Yex provides active promotional support for this wonderful product and we will be happy to help you with promotions and activities!

Our limes go under our brand Discovered.

Storage advice Lime


In the store
Before selling, limes must be stored in a cool, dry place at 9 to 10°C and at a relative humidity (RH) of 85 to 90%.

At home
We recommend that consumers store limes in the refrigerator or at room temperature. A lime’s flavour is best at room temperature. But limes will keep longer when refrigerated.



Usage tips Lime


Lime is a wonderfully flavoursome ingredient in cooking. It gives dishes, drinks and sauces a fresh, zingy taste. You can use limes in slices or wedges, but you can also use the juice. The grated peel of the lime (zest) is frequently used in cooking.

Extra tip for the consumer
Sprinkle lime juice of a lime over apple, pear, banana or avocado to prevent discolouration.
