The lime flavour comes through well in desserts. But this fresh-tasting cress is also a good addition to fruit cocktail - and alcoholic cocktails! The aniseed notes of Limon Cress come out best in combinations with shellfish.


There are some 150 different species in the Basil family. These differences appear in the taste and in their appearance.
