Conchs, speak up on key limes, please.

In the Florida Keys, a key lime is a little yellow thing with a distinctly piney scent. You can't just walk into a supermarket down there and buy a bag of them either; not the real ones, at least.

Even in the Keys, fakery is rampant in bars and supermarkets alike.

So what is the likelihood of encountering the real thing in any form outside south Florida?
