A lime from Haiti

A Facebook friend of mine recently went on a mission trip to Haiti and posted this picture of a lime from there.  She said the rind is very thick so the internal fruit is only about the same size as a lime that we're used to buying here in a grocery store.  Must be a real bugger to slice.

  1. I'll be damned, when I was there back in the spring of 98, they had very little homegrown anything, except maybe goats and dogs. It was prety hard to find an orchard because most of the armed guard were guarding businesses in town. What few patches of trees existed on Haiti then had to have armed guards or they would be cut down for firewood.
