A citrus hybrid, Blood Lime produces a balanced scent of Blood Orange and Lime. While it looks like a regular lime outside, the flesh is red, like a blood orange. The blood lime is a cross between the red finger lime and the Ellendale Mandarin hybrid, which is itself a sweet orange/mandarin cross.
The Blood Lime was created to thrive in high salt environments, but at Demeter, we love it because it is an incredibly full flavored cross of two of our favorite citrus scents.
