Help! Key limes vs. mexican limes vs. regular limes, key lime pie

marys1000 | Mar 16, 2010 02:02 PM

I've never had Key lime pie but I like lime so I thought I'm going to try to make one.
While thinking about this a week or so ago I checked my usual store and they had "Key Limes: from FL I think.
Today I buy limes but get home and realize its a bag of limes that just say Limes from Mexico.
Now they are smaller than "normal" limes of which I have one which is also from Mexico but I'm not sure they are as small as key limes.

I know ATK has said regular limes will do but I would rather not try that first time out.
My question is - could these be key limes vs. the bigger "persian" limes?
They are definately green while the internet says they are yellow when ripe. But I think the FL ones were green although I think they did have a bit more yellow.

Any lime experts out there?

Any key lime pie experts while I'm at it?
