I get curious about this every time I cut open a lime: How can these citrus fruits not have seeds? Or are they just so tiny I can't see them? Turns out, the limes typically sold in supermarkets are Persian or Tahiti limes and, like the Bearss lime, are indeed seedless. Key limes, on the other hand, contain seeds. The seedless limes are classified as a parthenocarpic fruit, meaning the flowers don't require pollen to make fruit. Though some fruits are bred to have no seeds, seedless limes are naturally occurring. So squeeze away.
A fragrant citrus fruit that is usually described as "lemon-like," even though there is no juicy pulp beneath the rind. It is bright yellow in color and has 5-20 long yellow "fingers." It's used primarily for its zest, as it does not have bitter white pith, but can also make a great marmalade. Buddha's hands are one of the oldest citrus fruits and gets their name from the resemblance closed fingered hands have to praying hands.
