I have a lime tree full of ripened yellow limes.  I live in CA and have had some unseasonably warm weather. Should I pick all the yellow limes off the tree?

You have allowed your limes to become over ripe. These should be picked and discarded. Do not wait for them to turn yellow, as they should be picked prior to turning this color. The following article should be of some help to you:
