Persian Limes
Persian limes are part of the citrus fruit family and are the most prevalent variety of lime. Persian limes are available year-round and are principally utilized in a variety of cultural cuisines. The US lime market has seen substantial growth in recent years and in 2016 had a total import value of $376 million. The US Persian lime deliverable supply consists primarily of imports from Mexico, totaling 1.2 billion pounds in 2016, producing a 10% increase from 2015. In addition, descriptive statistics reveal that Persian limes possess the greatest price volatility of the citrus market and cannot be effectively hedged with Frozen Concentrate Orange Juice (FCOJ).
