Citrus aurantifolia (Christm. et Panz.) Swingle is the lime species from which distilled lime, centrifuged Key lime type A, centrifuged Key lime type B, and expressed, or cold-pressed, acid lime oils are obtained. Distilled lime (the largest volume of the lime oils produced) is prepared by squeezing clean, whole limes through the broad end of a conical screw press that is fitted with 5 mm holes.
