Actually, they are different species- the Latin name of Lemon is Citrus limon, and the Latin name of Lime is Citrus medica which means the colour is not the one difference between them. They can't leave fertile generation, and they're genome is different.
Lemon and lime are citrus fruits While lemon is yellow in colour, lime is green.
