Q.Ripe Limes

Anonymous added on April 2, 2011 | Answered

Do limes have a lifespan once they’ve been brought home from the grocery store? If it’s partially green and yellow, is that a sign to use it as soon as possible to maintain fresh taste?

Limes become over ripe once they turn yellow. If your lime is reaching this point, use it right away. Grocery bought limes should always be used as soon as possible.
