What's difference between an American lemon and a Peruvian one?
When I lived (illegally) in the US, I always bought lemons at the local latina store and the lemons were the same.

Lemons are the size of a medium apple and yellow. A lime is about a quarter the size if a lemon and green.

Lemons are different than limons here in Peru. As mentioned, they are larger and bright yellow. Also available in the US are Limes, smaller, dark green and slightly less bitter than lemon. Vodka tonics typically include lime slices as a garnish.
Key Limes are the nearest US relative to the Peruvian limon. Key Limes are smaller than regular limes and slightly lighter in color than limes.

Oh, those. They aren't typical American lemons. They sell them all over Europe too and most of them come from Spain.
