Lime or Lemon
What do I need to know about lime or lemon?
Lime or lemon is from the same citrus fruit family, rich in vitamin C but different in colour. Lime is green and smaller, whereas lemon is yellow and big in size. Despite the difference in flavour, colour and size; lemons and limes have the same nutritional benefits and are low in calories.
Lemons and limes hold an important place in adding to the drinks and cocktails in the form of simple syrup. If you are very passionate and a professional in designing a drink or a cocktail, you need to know the consistency of citric acid in lemons and limes based upon which you can add it to the cocktail to enjoy the taste.
How long do Lime, Orange and Lemon slices last once cut?
Cut lime, orange and lemon slices last for a day or 2-3 days if refrigerated. However, remember that orange, lemons and limes, like a lot of other fresh fruits, usually do not have a use by date or best before the date so you will have to use the time purchased. You will receive our lemons and limes in a container labelled with the time they were cut and packed. This date can be used to calculate the eat by date.
Tip: Use soda water to keep them fresh throughout the day (on a dry day).
Will lemon slice, lime wedge or orange segment stay fresh in a fridge?
If you want your lemons slice, lime wedge or orange segment keep fresh longer you can store them into your refrigerator drawer so that they will last for 2-3 days. Once oranges, lemons and limes are prepared or cut, they should be stored in a tightly closed container to keep out moisture and other contaminants.

However, in our discounting process, the more containers ordered, the bigger the discount will be (from 5-15%).
What's the minimum order amount?
As there is no order minimum, your minimum amount will be the price of our cheapest container once. So, you can order just one packet or more packets of fresh lime, orange and lemon slices, lime wedge, lemon wedge or orange segment, depending on your needs.
