LIME - KASSIA
This unique fruit is grown by a local fruit collector. The flesh is bright orange inside the green skin. Used in dressing, marinades and as a colourful garnish. It look like a mandarin but tastes like a lime. The vigorous nature of the tree makes it ideal for using as a rootstock for grafting other citrus.

Customer Comments on Lime - Kassia
Lime - Kassia
This is a Rangpur lime. Grown and used extensively by the English while they were in India. Traditional orange marmalade was made with this variety. It is not a Kassia Lime. | Dan Johnson - Scotchy Pocket, QLD 12-Mar-2020
Lime - Kassia
great lime tree and heavy cropper. just do not cut back too heavily or your crop will be reduced in the following season. When picking fruit long welding gloves are handy as this tree has some serious spikes | Stephen Wood - Taloumbi, NSW 14-Aug-2018
