Rangpur Lime

The Rangpur lime (Citrus Lemonia Osbeck) is not like the lime you’ll find in the produce market, it is a unique fruit that blends attributes of other citrus. This orange colored lime has the zestiness expected of a lime but is as juicy as an orange and looks similar to a mandarin orange.

Its smell is absolutely delicious and it makes the best lemonade of the world.

Gin lovers out there may have heard of Tanqueray Rangpur.

The fruit is also known as lemanderin (according to Wikipedia). It’s called Limão Cravo in Brazil.
