*Cannot be eaten raw. For the record, its most commonly known as the Kaffir Lime, however the word 'kaffir' is a racist term to insult black Africans. and besides, the tree i s natie to the subcontinent and southeast Asia, where it is known in Thailand as makrut or commonly used in the country's wonderful cuisine. The fruit is not actually classified as a true lime as far as limes go but it does however belong to a sub-species of the citrus family known as citrus hystrix or citrus amblycarpa. One health benefit generated from the limes themselves is to grate some of the rind of the fruit and add it to any fish or chicken dish. Great in stir fries and curries.
