The State Pie
Key limes are smaller and more yellow than Persian limes. They are like a mix between a lemon and a lime. They got the name key lime because Key West is the only place in the United States that has the right tropical conditions for them to grow. The trees grow 12 to 16 feet high and have thorns on them. The key lime pie is the Florida state pie.
