What type of limes to you find in restaurants in Vietnam? They are the size/shape of quail eggs.?


Various species and subspecies of citrus are called limes, including the kaffir lime of Asia, and Citrus aurantifolia, the yellow-fleshed key lime of the southern U.S. (which is also commonly used in Mexico and the Caribbean). Citrus latifolia is the ordinary green Persian lime that is encountered most often in the U.S., even in cuisines where other, different-tasting limes would normally be used. Besides being traditionally associated with Persia, its origins are unknown.
