Strange Fruit - Lima

Does anyone know where I can find fresh lima fruit. This is a citrus fruit popular in Mexico and used mostly for fruit juice drinks known as "aguas frescas". They are the size and shape of an orange. When ripe, their color is yellow/green, similar to an unripe lemon. The flavor is somewhere between an orange and a lime. I am craving a lima agua fresca but I can't find the fruit anywhere. Thanks for your help!

    Please post when you do find out, that sounds great.
