Yellow Limes and Green Lemons

Limes will actually turn yellow when fully ripe. They develop sugars and are actually quite delicious in the yellow stage. Pick and eat in early fall for green fruit.
 
Lemons are green as they develop, turning yellow when first ripe. (Extremely ripe Meyer lemons actually take on a lovely orange hue.) Once mature, most varieties will hang on the tree for several months slowly growing larger and developing thicker skins.
