I saw them too Bee. They look just the same.
My bro in law brought his own over to make their cocktails.
He gave us 6 left over which are now juiced and frozen in case I find the rest of the ingredients needed for a Thai nosh up.

Never seen them here and someone said they wont grow here which seems odd.
Would also love one.

Those are definitely unripened mandolins.

Sorry...Sometimes I cant remember the English names... They're like satsumas/ tangerines.
They're not bitter. There's another type Turunc but not usually at the market but on trees here and there.

Not just Migros - the price of both limes and lemons have jumped significantly this year in countries that have to import them.  Various reasons but mainly due to poor harvests caused by weather, especially in Spain (one of the largest producers) where harvests are 35% down on last year.
