Lime originated from Southeast Asia, but is now spread to almost all part of the world, particularly the tropics. Lemons and limes are cultivated under all Mediterranean sub-tropical and inter-tropical climates worldwide. Cape coast has a tropical savanna climate with two long wet seasons a heavier one from March to July and a lighter one from September to November-alongside two short dry seasons in January/February and in August. Cape Coast having such climate condition helps citrus especially lime and lemon to thrive very well when cultivated. In Cape Cost a large scale of the land had been acquired over the past years whereby the lime and lemon had been grafted. These citrus fruits give us the Juice which is full of vitamin C and also a source of our solvent which helps the extraction of Bioactive compounds from our medicinal plants more successful.
