Lime essential oil expressed - Citrus latifolia tanaka - Persian
Persian limes are the larger of the two commercially grown varieties. They grow on almost thornless trees and are seedless and similar in size and shape to lemons. Although there is a small production in Florida, the bulk of Persian limes are grown in Mexico and Brazil, where they are called Tahiti limes. The oil is usually expressed using FMC type extractors, although in Mexico rasping equipment is not uncommon.
