The humble Kununurra lime.

Fresh Lime Juice in Perth: Introducing the Kununurra Lime

If you're a fan of fresh lime juice in Perth, you'll definitely want to hear about the star ingredient in our Bazinga juice blend: the Kununurra lime. These luscious limes hail from the beautiful town of Kununurra in our state of Western Australia, and they add a burst of tangy flavor to our Bazinga blend that simply can't be beat.

We make straight lime juice , which we sell to Perth's bars and restaurants. So if you're ordering for tomorrow's press [30/12/2022] you're in for a treat. 

The Town of Kununurra

Located in the far north of Western Australia, Kununurra is a small town with a population of just over 7,000 people. It's known for its beautiful scenery and outdoor adventures, including the nearby Ord River Dam and Lake Argyle, which are popular spots for fishing, boating, and other water sports. Kununurra is also home to several unique attractions, such as the Living Kununurra Heritage Village, which showcases the history and culture of the region.

But Kununurra isn't just a great place to visit – it's also an ideal location for growing limes.

The Perfect Climate for Growing Limes

The climate in Kununurra is hot and dry, with temperatures ranging from around 25°C in the summer to around 30°C in the winter. The town receives very little rainfall, with an average of just over 200mm per year. This dry, arid climate is perfect for growing limes, which thrive in hot, sunny conditions.

In addition to the climate, the soil in Kununurra is also well-suited for growing limes. The soil is a rich, red color and is known for its excellent drainage and nutrient content. These factors combine to create the perfect conditions for growing limes that are juicy, flavorful, and bursting with tangy goodness.

Supporting Local Producers

At our cold pressed juice company (Squished Juice), we believe in the importance of supporting local producers and using fresh, locally grown ingredients in our juices. That's why we're proud to feature limes from Kununurra in our Bazinga blend – we know that we're not only supporting the local economy in our state, but we're also getting the freshest, most flavorful ingredients possible.

In addition to supporting local producers, using locally grown ingredients also has several other benefits. For example, locally grown produce is often fresher and more flavorful than produce that has been shipped long distances. It can also be more nutritious, as it doesn't lose nutrients during transportation. Finally, using locally grown ingredients helps to reduce the carbon footprint of our juice blends, as the produce doesn't have to be shipped over long distances.

So the next time you enjoy a refreshing glass of fresh lime juice in Perth – whether it's at a cafe, restaurant, or bar – be sure to give a little nod to the Kununurra lime – it's the star of the show in our Bazinga blend!
