Having told you that this small fruit is Native to Australia, it dates back to the period of time when immigrants commenced settling in Australia’s vast lands. Due to the Desert Lime’s flavour being similar to the common citrus fruits that were consumed daily by the immigrants they were intensively foraged for in the wild by the locals as well as the early migrants. New South Wales’ population were under the British colonists’ rule who introduced the locals to the world of tarts, jams, jellies and other yummy specialties handmade from Desert Lime (Juice) and various wild berries. Desert Lime was respected being a native fruit of Australia by the European settlers.

A Rare & Nutritious, Citrus Treat... Desert Lime Syrup

A Unique Fruit - A Delicious Syrup

Desert Lime is a wild shrub present in the vast Australian bush lands. The fruit resembles a spiny tangled shrub growing at the range of 3 to 5 metres tall. The plant’s flowers grow as large as lemons and also have an uplifting sweet fragrance to it. The early baby limes grow 1-2 centimetres in diameter and grow bigger as they mature. These limes only appear in the summertime given that there was enough rainfall during the spring season. Desert Lime is an extraordinary and rare fruit cultivated and collected from bush lands. Being a highly revered wild plant this fruit can be mostly seen booming in bush land area, a location where they can be commonly sighted. Hover, today Desert Lime and its tasty juice is now changing its environment from a bushy wild shrub to a more domesticated crop. This is due the conversion and afforestation of vast wild bushy regions to commercial agricultural lands reaping benefits.

Worldwide there are around 1,800 species in the Desert Lime (Citrus glauca) family, found in both tropical and temperate climates, especially in Africa and Australia. In Australia, there are around 320 species, which are found in all states. A large number of Rutaceae species are food plants.

Desert Lime Syrup… Closing Thoughts

Sorry, you guys just read everything there is to know about Desert Lime Syrup so i'll share the recipe of the Desert Lime Sour Cocktail with you! I had a few of these exotic beverages last weekend, and man, it is good! Take a shaker and add some ice cubes to it. Pour 50ml Russian Vodka and 20ml Desert Lime Syrup into the shaker. Add a little lemon peel to it and shake very well. Fill an old-fashioned drinking glass with ice and pour the shaker’s content into it. Garnish it with some lemon peel. Cheers!

I'm also a big fan of treating myself now and zen. Panckaes are one of those treats, sugar and lemon used to be my topping of choice but I've gone super healthy and I even prefer it. I'm talking obviously about using Desert Lime Syrup instead. Jeez... Cocktails and Pancakes, this doesn't sound very Ancient Purity, well you have to have some fun too and if you do why not make it healthy fun.
