Flavoured Limes

crowbar | Jan 19, 2008 04:42 AM

Just bought flavoured limes (that's how they were labelled in the shop), having never heard of them before. They look sort of like regular limes except the skin is somewhat bumpier and these particular ones have one face lightly blushed with orange (sorry, haven't figured out how to use the new digi camera, still finding myself resistant to technology :)
I just cut one open: tangerine orange on the inside, much softer than regular limes so very easy to squeeze. Lotsa tangerine-coloured juice.
Definitely tastes like a lime... but a mild one. No discernable tangerine flavour.
So here's my question: are these a lime-tangerine hybrid? Or some less popular lime variety? My google searches haven't been fruitful :)
