I just pick about 20 limes off our tree and they were yellow inside and gave off a strange smell not the citrus lime smell, The outside color was green and little ” bits of yellow on some but not all. I thought they were just old but even yellow they should have been still good inside the fruit. Traci Loving Duarte California
