Palestinian sweet lime seeds (Citrus limettioides)

Price for Package of 2 seeds.

Citrus limettioides, Palestinian sweet lime or Indian sweet lime or common sweet lime, alternatively considered a cultivar of Citrus × limon, C. × limon 'Indian Lime', is a low acid lime that has been used in Palestine for food, juice, and rootstock.

Indian sweet lime is a small evergreen tree with few thorns, growing 4 - 6 meters tall.
The tree is sometimes cultivated for its edible fruit, especially in India, the Mediterranean region, Vietnam, and tropical America

It is a member of the sweet limes. Like the Meyer lemon, it is the result of a cross between the citron (Citrus medica) and a mandarin/pomelo hybrid distinct from sweet and sour oranges.

Edible Uses

Fruit - raw, cooked, or preserved. A succulent, acidic-sweet pulp. A soft drink is made from the juice.

Medicinal

The fruit has medicinal properties.
Citrus species contain a wide range of active ingredients and research is still underway in finding uses for them. They are rich in vitamin C, flavonoids, acids, and volatile oils. They also contain coumarins such as bergapten which sensitizes the skin to sunlight. Bergapten is sometimes added to tanning preparations since it promotes pigmentation in the skin, though it can cause dermatitis or allergic responses in some people. Some of the plants more recent applications are as sources of anti-oxidants and chemical exfoliants in specialized cosmetics.
Other Uses
Essential oil is obtained from the peel of the fruit.

The plant is used as a rootstock for other Citrus species.
