What are Some Different Types of Citrus Fruits?
Citrus fruits originated in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. These fruits are covered in a skin, commonly referred to as a rind or the zest, contain pulp and are high in acidity. Most of the time these fruits are eaten fresh after being peeled and cut into segments. Citrus fruits are often used to make juices and are loaded with Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant. Different examples of citrus fruits are lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruits and tangerines. Lemons and limes are not usually eaten on their own. They are used for flavoring foods, garnishing meals and cooking in dishes.
