    Wikipedia (EN):
    The Key lime (Citrus × aurantiifolia) is a citrus hybrid (C. micrantha x C. medica) with a globose (spherical shaped) fruit, 2.5–5 cm (0.98–1.97 in) in diameter, that is yellow when ripe but usually picked green commercially.
    It is smaller and seedier, with a higher acidity, a stronger aroma, and a thinner rind, than that of the Persian lime (Citrus × latifolia). It is valued for its unique flavor compared to other limes. The name comes from its association with the Florida Keys, where it is best known as the flavoring ingredient in Key lime pie.
     
    Citrus aurantiifolia, key lime (also known as Mexican or West Indian lime), is a thorny shrub or small tree in the Rutaceae (citrus family) that originated in southeast Asia, likely Indonesia and Malaysia, and is cultivated in tropical areas from the West Indies and Central and South America to India, China, and parts of Africa for its flavorful fruit.

    The lime for beers and pies, the Mexican Lime is a favorite among ‘foodies’ everywhere. The fruit is juicy and plump, about an inch and a half to two in diameter, with a great balanced flavor. The semi-dwarf trees fruit prolifically and the blooms provide a nice sweet citrus aroma. Sometimes sold as West Indian Lime.

    Taxonomic citation:
    Citrus × aurantiifolia (Christmann) Swingle, Journal of the Washington Academy of Sciences 3: 465. 1913.
    Basionym:
    Limonia × aurantiifolia Christmann, Vollstandiges Pflanzensystem 1: 618. 1777.
         * Both names sometimes erroneously written with one connecting “i”, “aurantifolia”. (Christmann originally used only one connecting “i”, which would be fine if he were intending to mean that the leaves were like the genus “Aurantum”, but such a genus does not exist.  Instead he intended to mean that the leaves were like the genus Aurantium, which does exist, & the rules for plant nomenclature require the second “i”.  The corrected spelling is still ascribed to the original author.)
