The Mexican lime, also known as the key lime, is a small, round fruit with a thin, smooth, greenish-yellow rind. It has greenish-yellow flesh that is seedy and highly acidic. The fruit is about one and a half inches in diameter and is green when unripe, turning yellow as it ripens.

The Mexican lime is commonly grown in the Florida Keys and is the most aromatic of the limes. It is often used for desserts (key lime pie), marmalades, and garnishes.

The Mexican lime tree is moderately sized and bushy, with aromatic leaves when crushed. Some selections are thorny, while others are thornless. The trees are sensitive to cold and can be produced all year round in milder coastal climates, but they are very frost-sensitive.
