About Lemon & Limes
by Aziz Ahsak
From wholesaling bacon and eggs to driving minicabs and tailoring for Debenhams, it’s been an unusual career path into fruit and veg for Aziz Ahsak.
He now runs two Lemon & Limes fresh fruits, Vegetables, organic fruit, Organic Vegetable at Chiswick and west Hampstead based in London.
The shop itself is well known for its attractive displays of high quality produce, including organic and hard-to-find lines such as carob, smoked chillies and galangal.There is an excellent variety of produce on show – at least eight varieties of apple, for example. Other shelves include oils, vinegars, pulses, spices and dairy. A row of exotics is impressive, including feijoa, tamarillo, dragon fruit and more, with a display above explaining the fruits’ origin and use.
“We’re trying to sell healthy products,” Aziz explains. “We don’t sell fizzy drinks, alcohol or cigarettes.
