The traditional areas of Mexican lime production are Colima, Michoacan, Guerrero, and Oaxaca located on the southwestern coast of Mexico. On the southeastern coast we find mainly production of Persian lime in Tamaulipas and Veracruz.
Today the most important regions for Mexican lime production are Oaxaca, Michoacan, and Colima. Together they account for approximately 70-80% of the total production of Mexican lime oil. The Colima region is the most productive and is where you will find some of the best maintained lime groves and the most modem processing plants.
