Very Happy with Your Service!

“The last order arrived in perfect condition and the trees have doubled in size over the past three weeks.  The Improved Meyer lemon and Variegated Pink lemon are both now blooming.  It is not often you hear about the good things in this day and time; excellent customer service is a rarity.  I will definitely be a repeat customer not only because of the superior product, but for the "Grade A" customer service!”

Australian Finger Lime

 

austrailian_finger_limeMicrocitrus australasica

The Australian Finger Lime is actually an understory tree native to the rainforests of Northern New South Wales, and Queensland, Australia. The tree is thorny, with small leaves and a delicate habit that belies its toughness in the landscape. The petite, elongated fruits ripen in fall or winter in California, and have a flavor reminiscent of true limes. The fruit is sometimes referred to as "citrus caviar" because the small round interior vesicles pop in your mouth with tart lime flavor. Chefs the world over are finding creative uses for Australian Finger Limes, which add unique texture and a special "zing" to dishes.
