When are limes ready to be picked?

cresyd | Aug 26, 2012 04:17 AM

I don't know much/anything about lime trees - including if there are multiple breeds/varietys. However, generally speaking, what is a good way of telling when a lime is ready to be picked? I have a friend who currently has a lime tree in his garden, and neither of us can quite tell when they're ready to be picked. It is still early in the season, so maybe later on it will be more obvious? But right now we're both a bit in the dark.
