??? Are you maybe thinking of Meyer lemons with the size? The key limes I've encountered have all been tiny things--actually smaller than the usual lime. Very tasty, though....
--Maire, who is devoutly wishing for a piece of some magical variety of low-cal key lime pie right now....

Speaking of polychrome veggies, I've seen white eggplants ( don't know if
they're period), across the pond they call the purple ones aubergines, which
is also the name for that color, somewhat like oranges I think. Not sure
which is the original. There is also a variety of limes called Key Limes,
they look like a lemon but they are actually a very large yellow skinned
lime that grows in South Florida and possibly the Caribbean.
I think there are purple potatoes too that grow in the Andes
