About Key Limes

The Key lime is a citrus species with a globose fruit that is yellow when ripe but usually picked green commercially. It is smaller and seedier, with a higher acidity, a stronger aroma, and a thinner rind, than that of the Persian lime. It is valued for its unique flavor compared to other limes, with the Key lime usually having a more tart and bitter flavor.
