7. Spanish Lime

Although it looks like a lime and tastes like a lime, it is not a lime. It is more lychee-like (it seems everything is lychee-like). And to boot, it's also not Spanish, as it comes from Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean.

This is a citron, thus unlike it's orange and lemon cousins, it has no pulp. The fact that it is basically all rind makes it great for zesting and making marmalades. Oh, and scaring the crap out of small children.
