The Key Lime is a citrus species with a yellow color when ripe. It is smaller, seedier, has a higher acidity, a stronger aroma, and a thinner rind than that of the Persian lime. It is valued for its unique flavor compared to other limes, with the key lime usually having a more tart and bitter flavor. The name comes from its association with the Florida Keys, where it is best known as the flavoring ingredient in Key Lime Pie.
Lisle Babcock knows his citrus! We love finding innovative growers like Babcock, who are committed to growing new and unusual varieties full of flavor and harvested at their peak of ripeness. Babcock grew up in a farming family. Citrus was always a favorite -- the family grew five acres of oranges when he was young. Lisle is also an excellent pomegranate farmer. The seeds of his fresh pomegranates are soft enough to be eaten along with the pulp. The fruit is grown by Babcock and a group of family farmers whose commitment to superior taste, hard-to-find varieties and support of organic growing methods results in unsurpassed flavor and quality.
