Limes are actually harvested before they are ripe, most will turn yellow if you leave them on the tree. Look for fruit which is a lighter green, smooth and slightly soft when gently squeezed. The best way to check is to harvest one, cut it open and give it a try. Keep in mind that they will not ripen further once they are harvested.
