ever had "green" oranges from Latin America?

I have a friend that just sent me some pics from Columbia of some strange little oranges he found. Apparently, they exist in Latin America, but I've never seen or heard of them, and I'm terribly curious as to what they are. They're oranges--bright orange inside, but the rind is dark green, more like a lime. Almost like a cocktail grapefruit, but an orange instead of grapefruit. Any ideas what it could be? What are they called? I've never seen them, even in little Mexican markets here in LA...
