Sweet limes are petite, with a diameter ranging from 5-7 centimeters and a circular to oblate form. The rind is thin, simple to peel, smooth, and covered in visible oil glands. Depending on the region, it may remain green when ripe or ripen to a golden-yellow color. The flesh is delicate, yellow-green, separated into ten segments by thin, white membranes beneath the rind. It also includes a few inedible cream-colored seeds.
