An oval shaped Tahitian lime that is slightly larger than Tahitian Bearss lime. It is greenish yellow when ripe but is harvested to be sold when it is still green because the acidity level is higher, which provides a better flavor. Tahitian limes have a fairly thin rind and their flesh is pale green, seedless, and juicy. In the United States, the majority of Persian limes are grown in Florida. This variety is found most commonly in the food stores. The Tahitian limes are often used in the well-known key lime pie because key limes are often not available. Tahitian limes are not as acidic or aromatic as key limes.
