This citrus fruit has shown a positive start to 2024, with an increase of 63 percent in the first three weeks, compared to the same period last year. This increase is due to the greater demand from international markets, who recognize and appreciate the quality of Peruvian limes, exporters say.

Most of the lime exports have been shipped from the Port of Paita (84 percent) and, to a lesser extent, from the Port of Callao (16 percent).

Over the course of 2023, lime exports covered a total of 39 destinations, marking an increase of four new markets compared to 2022.
