Q.Can a Lime Tree Produce Lemons?

Zone Phoenix | Rjhaworth added on December 27, 2011 | Answered

We moved to Phoenix in August, thought we had a lime tree and used the limes from the tree. Now in December the fruit is larger and yellow, looks like lemons. Can this happen or did we just use the fruit before it was ripe?
