What is up with limes?

QueenB | Apr 18, 2007 05:30 PM

The past three times I've bought limes at the grocery store, I've gotten them home, gone to use them and they're dry as a bone. I might get a quarter tsp. of juice out of the whole thing. I've put in the microwave, rolled on the countertop, put on the juicer, but these suckers are dry as a bone.
I'm frustrated.
Anyone else having these problems? Do I just not know how to pick a good lime? How would I pick a good lime?
