Here's an interesting site on food references in Shakespeare's works:
On the question of citrus in the Bard's plays, it shows two references to
oranges in Much Ado About Nothing and a reference to lemons in Love's Labor
Lost, but nothing about limes.
Also, Alexander Schmidt, in his two-volume Shakespeare-Lexicon does not
mention the fruit in the entry "lime": "Lime, subst. 1) a viscous substance laid on twigs
to catch birds, bird-lime, ... 2) the matter of which mortar is made ..." (volume I, page 655).
