This would let people enjoy the flavor of lemons and limes without having to scrunch up their faces so much (although I know that's half the fun for spectators).

On a practical level, you could make delicious lemonade and limeade without using so much sugar. All the taste without the extra calories/cavities.

       These exist. Limettas (which are actually sweet lemons) are, well, sweet lemons. And key limes are sweet too, as bliss points out. Try an Oroblanco grapefruit sometime too.

       As my family sings when we eat our Key Lime Pie:   

       "Key lime every mountain..."

       I really dislike that song - it is so mountainous and wet! and ugh!
