Key limes are a special variety of limes. They have a yellow green color and a very unique flavor. Look for them in a specialty food store, or some well stock supermarkets. You may also be able to find the juice in bottles. I was first introduced to key limes when my husband and I went to Key West one year. They're very good.Source: Unknown
