This is my second challenge. Seeing that there is no challenge on fruits I decided to start one. Fruits are one of the things that we humans need to eat in order to live a balanced life.
How Does It Work?
This Fruit of the Day challenge is a daily challenge.
Be creative and challenge yourself.
Last but not least, ENJOY and have FUN.

A lime (from French lime, from Arabic līma, from Persian līmū, “lemon”) is a citrus fruit, which is typically round, green in color, 3–6 centimetres (1.2–2.4 in) in diameter, and contains acidic juice vesicles.
There are several species of citrus trees whose fruits are called limes, including the Key lime (Citrus aurantiifolia), Persian lime, kaffir lime, and desert lime. Limes are a rich source of vitamin C, are sour, and are often used to accent the flavours of foods and beverages. They are grown year-round. Plants with fruit called “limes” have diverse genetic origins; limes do not form a monophyletic group.
Although the precise origin is uncertain, wild limes are believed to have first grown in Indonesia or Southeast Asia, and then were transported to the Mediterranean region and North Africa around 1000 CE.
In 2016, global production of lemons and limes was 17.3 million tonnes, led by India with 17% of the world total. Mexico and China were other major producers.
