Sweet Limes

These were labelled with the little tag as SweetLimes. Don't know what they're about. They were definitely sweet inside, not sour. And yellowish outside. And, they have seeds, which limes don't have, so they must be a cross with another fruit.

Neat citrus. Sweet Lime must be the trademark name.

I would say it's Calamansi. Since they look like lime but are sweet. But calamansi is much smaller.

I've done some checking on the 'Net, and it may be that these are the Indian sweet limes, as seen in the movie The Darjeeling Limited. Also known as Citrus Limetta, they grow them in the States too. The Indian ones look to be quite big.
