This unusual citrus fruit looks like an orange lime but isn’t even a lime at all. It is actually a cross between a mandarin and a lemon. The fruits are super seedy, so be forewarned that it’s a small chore to juice them. However, the zest and juice of the rangpur lime are wonderfully floral and slightly smoky. One treat is to make yourself some rangpur lime syrup to use in cocktails, mix with club soda or use as a sweetener for iced tea.
