Living up to its potential

Remember this little guy?

Believe it or not it was still on the tree yesterday.

You're probably thinking, "I thought it was a lime." I know, the color is deceiving. It is a lime. We've found that if we pick them when they have some yellow color they're bursting with tasty juiciness.

After taking the photo I picked what I needed for Thanksgiving dessert. The First Lime of 2010 literally fell off the tree when I touched it. Uh oh, maybe I waited too long? No, the fruit was firm and the skin was unblemished. Nice.

The little lime hung on for close to a year and its zest and juice are now in an Old Fashioned Lime Pie, one of the desserts for today's family gathering.

Happy Thanksgiving!
