1/20/22: Fruit volumes in Peru have normalized and the season appears to be getting back on track. Despite this, fruit prices and oil prices have continued to increase. Demand is likely to surpass supply for the next few months due to the citrus situation in Mexico.
10/21/21: New crop will start in November of 2021 and run through to June 2022. Fresh fruit remains in high demand and prices are likely to either stay firm or increase slightly higher. There is no short-term relief in sight for lime, as Mexico does not start its next crop until the end of 2021. Hurricane season plays a big factor in the projected outlook of fresh fruit from Mexico so it remains to be seen how much lime will be available further in the year. Peru typically follows Mexico’s lead in terms of pricing.
9/29/21: New harvest in Peru has begun, though the country is still facing global demand for fresh fruit. There is no carryover from last year and fruit prices have increased by over 10% in many places.
7/23/21: Demand for lime oil remains firm out of Mexico, as the high season just recently started (after a short delay). Peru oil is sold out until their next crop season in September through October. In both these markets, precedence for fresh fruit is still the main cause for concern.
Description of Lime Oil Distilled Peru
Steam-distilled from the fruits of the Citrus aurantifolia plant, Lime Oil Distilled can be derived from many different varieties of lime, though the most common place of origin is Peru. This distilled oil highlights the underexpressed floral characteristics of lime, with notes reminiscent of lilac. Distilled lime oil has a distinctly sharp and piney top note, though the Peruvian variety generally smells fresher and less sweet than Mexican lime.
