Our main product is the fresh seedless lemon also known as Persian lemon (Citrus latifolia), it is a fruit whose main characteristic is the production of juice with a high degree of acidity.
It is a product that has a dynamic demand in the local Guatemalan market, however the supply of Persian lemon fruit is greatly reduced during the dry season, due to the shortage of irrigation water in lemon cultivars. On the other hand, during the rainy season, the supply of the fruit is markedly increased, starting at the time of June to December of each year.
The national production of Persian lemon is distributed as follows: Santa Rosa (16%), Escuintla (17%), Sacatepéquez (11%), El Progreso (7%), Alta Verapaz (6%), Retalhuleu ( 11%), San Marcos (7%), and the other departments of the Republic add up the remaining (25%). (MAGA, 2016)

The fruit has characteristics such as acidity, high content of vitamin C and minerals and is used in the food industry, (including desserts such as ice cream, cakes, food seasoning, infusions, soft drinks, etc.).
