Default Kaffir Lime

This is the fruit and leaves of a Kaffir Lime. Native to SE Asia it is a true citrus and so grows here in the US anywhere you can grow oranges ot lemons or Mexican Limes. Juice is good, as well as the zest. But the numerous tiny seeds are a pain, and the knobby hide makes getting the zest a pain as well. Its value in the double leaves...they have an intense delicious flavor and aroma. Two leaves are all it takes to give a quart of Thai soup a nice lime addition. Anywho tech- on foam board, one flash. That's it Done at about 20mm focal. Obviously I am not a food photographer, but did these for a friend who wanted to see what I had in the backyard, and was fairly pleased with the results.

Not a bad image and quite interesting looking thing, as knobby as it is. You would have to be delicate in the zesting attempts, to avoid the pith, and right on those seeds. Seems like a lot. Interesting to see foods you never seen before. I have seen lime juice from these, but not the fruit itself, so didn't know it was knobby....
