Rangpur Lime

January 10th, 2010 | Fruit Maven

If your favorite part of Scooby Doo was when the villain would be unmasked to be the kooky neighbor lady, then this is the fruit for you!
Rangpur Limes
APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★☆

Looks identical to a tangerine – inside and out.

AROMA Rating: ★★★★☆

Strong, floral and perfumy lime fragrance. Almost as complicated as the Kaffir lime.

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★½

Juicy and luscious with very few seeds, if any.

TASTE Rating: ★★★½☆

Extremely sour, distinct lemon-lime flavor with the slightest hint of tangerine (I concede this may be related to how it looks, but I did try it with my eyes closed just to check).

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

This lime is just crazy cool and the devious part of me aches to trick everyone I know into thinking it is a little, sweet tangerine. Oh how I wish these were around during Halloween. Have you noticed yet how much I mention Halloween? It’s not because I am obsessed with the holiday (although maybe a little bit), but more that I am constantly reminded of it. Who knew the world of fruit could be so crafty and clever?

NOTES

Hilariously this “lime” isn’t a lime at all but actually a hybrid between a mandarin and a lemon. It is also known by the names: marmalade lime, canton lemon, mandarin lime and lemandarin. As you might imagine, “lemandarin” is my favorite and I intend to start going by lefruitmaven as often as possible (or at least when I’m not going by “Fruit Maven the Elder“).
