The Persian Lime, sometimes called the Tahiti lime, is what we in the US know simply as a lime. It is larger, thicker-skinned, less acidic or bitter and less aromatic than the key lime, which is better known in the rest of the world. The bright green flesh, and bracing citrus flavor of the lime is the basis for our delicious Persian Lime Olive Oil.
