Botanical description

Common lime trees grow up to 40 m. The bark is smooth with a thick, fibrous texture and the leaves are large, dark green and heart-shaped with a paler underside. The tree blossoms in small clusters of creamish yellow flowers, which are heavily scented and attractive to bees. The fruit are oval-shaped and ribbed with pointed tips.

 

Food uses

The flowers and leaves make a pleasantly soothing herbal tea. Dried lime flowers were once stocked in many French households to make Tilleul.

The flowers also flavour liqueurs, lemonade and cordial. The leaves can be picked for salads and sandwiches.

 

Nutritional profile

Mature lime leaves were dried into a food supplement and used as a nutritious gruel during the occupation of France in the second world war.
