Wow, the second picture really does them justice.
If I wanted to purchase a red lime, is there a specific one to ask for?

I don't know, but it looks like you have a good crop.
My Meyer lemons are starting to turn yellow in central Alabama right now. I think I'm going to let them stay on the tree until the first or second week of December.

Thanks everyone for clearing this up.
I may have to do a combination of inside and outside over the winter. Around here weather can be mild for a while and then have a week of weather where the lows are in the mid teens.
I lost a Meyer last year when I forgot to bring it in during a cold night.
I'm going to be more vigilant this winter. My tree this year is too nice to lose. It's approaching four feet and nicely branched. It has a half dozen large lemons on it that look like they won't be ripe until mid December.

Be careful on the website for that video, I saw an ad for Prime Pro as product designed to control the ripening of fruit.
When I clicked the ad it carried me to a site for Free Palestine and said I had been hacked. Lucky for me I'm running with all shields up behind a private VPN.

If I had been surfing in unprotected mode I could have very well been hacked.

The steaming of the citrus trees does look promising. It looks like it would take a long time to do if you had 100's of acres of trees to treat. Given a choice to spend the time treating or let the trees die, I would spend my days steaming the trees.

Thanks Brian. How do you over winter your Meyer Lemon?

Thanks Millet for clarifying the light spectrum question regarding my windows.
I do have one additional question, If I bring in my tree for the winter, what will it do when I return it to the patio in the spring?
Will it begin blooming? I know that it will not receive the below 68 Deg temps that from what I have read, initiate the bloom cycle.
