What do you prefer, lemon or a lime? They are almost alike, right? Of course, they do differ in size, color, and flavor, but many people in the world consider them the same. Lemons and limes obviously belong to the same family of fruits and they both are citrus fruits. They are almost similar when it comes to their nutritional benefits, but, still, they have differences as well. If you don’t have any lemons at home, you can just limes instead.
