Limed! Various lime flavour pairings

We recently posted an article describing new genetically modified limes that will eventually be sold in stores near you. You can identify these limes by their colorful mesocarps, but it is unclear how the flavour profiles of these variants might differ. At Novotaste, our lime flavors are 100% natural. We source a variety of pure & natural lime essential oils from different regions of the world.
