And its interesting to see how our Portuguese-speaking world likes the taste of rangpur or Limão galego as it is known here which plays the role of a lemon or and lime (also rich in α-bergamotene). To give another reference there is some in hops. I am convinced that we have not yet discovered the full potential of this essential oil, much more familiar than we expect. We know that limonoids are present in Rangpur (origin of bitterness) with numerous biological activities (neuroprotective, immunomodulatory, anti-obesity, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, etc. 

The aroma of the essential oil extracted from this unsuspecting fruit is unique, it is a has a heady citrus spark, with a warm floral ginger spice. 


Rangpur are fruit that only become edible when they are extremely ripe, and no one could forget this incredibly sour fruit with its pretty orange color disguised as a sweet mandarin.

The Rangpur lime is most recognised from being one of the main botanicals and the name of Tanqueray gin.
