          Lime Thailand is also known as Key Lime and is sourer than the sweet Persian type Limes. It is smaller, has a thin peel and the fruit has an intensely sour taste as a juice and flavoring for drinks and foods. The essential oil is lighter, fresh, less preferred for aromatic blends and more preferred for applications to the skin than Lime expressed. Today Key Lime is produced mainly in Mexico, Peru, the West Indies (Caribbean Islands) and Thailand while sweet Lime is produced mainly in Florida U.S. and Brazil.
