Lime (Ndimo)

Lime is used instead of lemon and it is one of the most important fruits on Zanzibar used in the ubiquitous Mchuzi- sauce. The sauce is usually based on tomato, onion garlic, lime, ginger and spices and boiled together with various vegetables. Not that exiting but an important staple food in the Zanzibaris home and goes well with rice that also come in a wide selection.

The lime tree is a cute round tree and works fine in the tough climate.
