Renewing the Mind, Body, and Spirit through juicing

How to buy Limes

Select limes that are bright green in color and have a shine to their skin, realizing that sometimes they have been coated with wax, which will also give them a shine. They should feel firm and heavy for their size, because heavy limes will produce the most juice. Select limes with thin skins, avoiding the thicker skinned fruit, which is an indication of less flesh and juice. Avoid limes that are pale green and are showing signs of yellowing, which is an indication that the limes are getting close to being fully ripe. Fully ripe limes will have lost their acidity and will be bland in flavor compared to bright green tart limes. Select those that are fairly smooth skinned, free of blemishes and do not have soft or hard spots. Small brown spots on the limes does not indicate that there is a lose of juiciness or flavor, but if the limes are mostly brown in color, that may be an indication of scald, which will cause the fruit to have a moldy flavor. Avoid limes with shriveled skin or that feel spongy, which is a sign of old fruit that will have lost a lot of its juiciness.
