Sorry, no etymologies found.
Ulimocor is derived from the Xhosa word "lima" which means "to farm".
Albala says at 191-93 that the lima is native to the Andes.
The sweet lime, called lima, is about the size of a small orange and is sweeter than the regular lime.
The definition of lima is the same as in the other dictionaries, lime.
Sopa de lima is just what it sounds like: lime-rich chicken broth full of shredded tortillas, chicken and vegetables.
Sopa de lima is so good, just thinking about it makes me hungry.
In my imagination I made remarks regarding the availability of backeyed peas in the Lake Chapala area and the peculiar fruit known as a lima discussed by Esperanza earlier hereabouts.
The lima is a versatile vegetable with nearly all plant parts edible.
