Short description

The lime plant prefers a tropical climate, such as that of Guatemala where it is called “limon”. Smaller and tarter than lemons, its fruit is widely used in Latin American cuisine both to prepare tasty dishes and refreshing drinks, such as mojito.
Lime trees produce a lot of fruit and offer economic support and food support to farming families.

Where will it be planted?

We plant lime trees in Guatemala, in the Petén region. Local farming communities cultivate lime trees on land at risk of desertification. Setting up agroforestry planting projects ‒ and not monocultures ‒ the progressive regeneration of soil is ensured together with animal and plant biodiversity.
As a matter of fact, a stable agroforestry system requires fewer inputs, regenerates soil and biodiversity, and constantly produces diversified yields.

Why economic support?

Lime trees produce a lot of fruit. The farmers keep some of the fruit produced for personal consumption and sell the rest at the nearest market, at a price of about $ 0.25 per kilo.
