For the last few weeks the guy selling papayas has been selling something he was calling key limes. They looked like what I always thought key limes looked like; very small, very round, bumpy and yellow… not green. However, all of the websites showing “key limes”, including “key limes” in bags at the grocery store, are smooth-skinned and green. Wikipedia says key limes are yellow when ripe but are usually picked green… so maybe I am just buying actually ripe limes. It also says that key limes are the same thing as Mexican limes, which I don’t think is true…
