Maxwell’s Lime-Elo Sorbet


A 21st century fruit born on Sanibel, is now available by the pints as sorbet. But there is nothing pint-sized about the flavor of this natural wonder. Nearly four years ago, Sanibel resident Steve Maxwell was amazed to discover that two fruit trees in his backyard had somehow produced a naturally germinated hybrid between a key lime and a Mineola tangelo honeybell. Since the discovery of the plant — he christened the Lime-elo — Maxwell’s natural wonder is bearing its own fruits with the launch of LIMEELO SORBET, which is now produced by Sweet Melissa’s Café and is available at the following locations.
